"Emotional pain is not something that should be hidden away and never spoken about. There is truth in your pain, there is growth in your pain, but only if it's first brought out into the open" - Steven Aitchison. Life's challenges can create feelings of hopelessness, and even skew our sense of worth. You are not alone...I would love to join you on the journey towards healing and empowerment.

I believe there is an innate desire within every human to be seen and heard, and to receive value and significance. For so many, a message filled with lies was internalized, “Who cares what I think? My feelings aren't important.” My NUMBER ONE focus is to create an atmosphere where my clients feel at ease, and valued and given the freedom to tell their unique and personal story. The meaning of “Therapy” to me is this, “Therapy is the miracle of, “You tell” and “I listen”. Therapy is the wonder of being heard and understood.” The goal of therapy is for the "best you" to emerge as skills and strategies are learned and implemented.

As an outsider, it would appear that you have it all figured out. You performed well in school, scored an awesome job, and even nabbed an amazing partner. You've got it all! But then why do you feel like crap all the time? It's like your body is in a constant state of panic while your brain is in perpetual crisis mode. "What's wrong with me?!" you wonder. People tell you that you're fine, but you can't shake this feeling that at any moment, this life that you've worked so hard for is about to come crashing down. You keep a smile plastered on your face but inside you're silently screaming. You can't keep this up for much longer.

Congratulations on taking the first step on your path to personal growth! At any age, seeking counseling requires strength and courage, and it is completely normal that you may be hesitant and have lots of questions. While the views regarding mental health are becoming more positive, the decision to seek help can still produce feelings of anxiety and hesitancy. Just know that the decisions that are often the most difficult or scary for us often lead us to a more positive, fulfilling path on the other side.

Things have a way of not working out the way they we thought they would. The stories of our lives begin in the families we are given with all of their foibles and experiences. Pages that become chapters of pain, trauma or loss can engulf the one that feels trapped in the narrative. After a plot twist of epic proportions, I left a 16-year career in the intelligence community and began a new chapter. I’ve had to confront the sources, rewrite the narrative, consult the author and find myself in the pages. The refinement process can be a horrific one but in the truth, freedom is found. Together, we can find healing.
