"You: are a high achiever, and embarrassed to admit you're struggling, especially when other people seem to have it so much worse. You're sensitive, idealistic, and creative. You're aware of your potential and people reflect it back to you, but you're having trouble finding traction. You're not connecting with your work the way you want to, and your co-working relationships are "fine," but not satisfying in the way you'd like them to be. It feels like somethings missing, but you don't know what, and you don't know where to find it. Behind the mask, you feel scared, sad, lonely, insecure, anxious, depressed and you may be losing hope."

"I founded Be Love Community Counseling to provide safe, healing space for people that have been oppressed, marginalized or have an identity outside of the "dominant culture." Historic trauma and past hurts may show up as depression, anxiety, anger management issues, low self-esteem, underachievement, oppositional behaviors etc. You may think that something is wrong with you while what you're experiencing may actually be a result of something that has happened to you or your ancestors. Therapy is empowering as you may increase awareness about what is keeping you from freedom to live the life you desire."

"In pain and struggle are also resilience, strength and even opportunity. Engaging in a therapeutic relationship is an act of courage and hope that can lead to relief and lasting change. You may be experiencing loneliness, relationship issues, anxiety, depression, low self esteem, loss, creative blocks or the effects of trauma and oppression. Maybe you are just not where you would like to be in your life. Therapy can help to create a more fulfilling life in part by deepening self knowledge, increasing resilience and mitigating the effects of early life experiences."
