Whether you were born with a genetic condition, or have had an injury in the last year, living with a disability that causes ongoing pain can seem hopeless. If your pain is impacting your relationships with family and friends, you're not alone. If your conditions interfere with your ability to do ever day tasks, you are worthy. If the quality of your life feels at the mercy of others, you can experience stability. If you are looking for someone who has experienced a similar path and has found a life worth living, start your therapy journey now.
Diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy since the age of three, I continue my own battle with chronic pain. There is no forever solution out there for most conditions, but there are ways to reduce its hold on us Together we will learn about your unique challenges with pain, and find different ways to reduce your suffering through evidence based practices.
On a personal note, I live in Fargo, and I'm a full time cat dad. I enjoy light exercise, horror movies, murder mystery podcasts, and playing competitive board games. If you have any questions about what counseling with me might look like, I encourage you to reach out. I would love the opportunity to learn about you! See you soon.
