I am committed to supporting people who have experienced oppression, trauma, or other difficult experiences. I know that figuring out how to live one's life with a sense of meaning, satisfaction, and authenticity can be difficult, and I am here to support you on that journey."

"Self-esteem can affect your mental health. Negative thoughts about yourself can lead to depression, anxiety, panic attacks, anger or other issues. Self-esteem begins in childhood and may fluctuate depending on your life experiences. There may be a point in time that you no longer recognize who you are. You start to please everyone, and lose focus on your wants and needs. You begin to doubt yourself and your abilities, stay in unhealthy relationships, make self-destructive decisions (alcohol, promiscuity). You become stuck and cannot move forward. You lose yourself and who you are."

"While all people experience challenges throughout life, we each suffer in different ways and, as a result, develop a unique style of dealing with stress. During difficult times, ways of coping that once worked often lose their effectiveness. Even after identifying a problem or unhealthy pattern, it may be difficult to resolve the issue without the necessary support. Therapy often involves an increased curiosity toward one's emotional experience, and over time, awareness of how feelings relate to behavior. This allows for a deeper understanding of who we are and can help us approach problems and conflicts in healthier ways."
