We can accumulate distress, emotional pain, fear and worry to the point where we can no longer function in our daily lives, at work or in our relationships with one another. Yet we all have the mechanisms and capacity to expend our distress, heal our pain and master a sense of internal safety and calm.

At my graduate program I was introduced to Narrative therapy which helped me to appreciate the impact of culture and systems that surround us. I spent multiple years gaining experience in helping with multiple challenges such as neurodivergence, struggles in relationships, anxiety, and depression. I have worked with adolescents and adults who have come to identify with the LGBTQIA+ community. I have supported them as well as their families or friends with the understanding of importance in using helpful language to support one’s identity and witnessed how transitioning can create space for hope.
