Reaching out in times of need is not always easy- this last year alone has led many of us through uncharted territories. Sometimes we are left in a place where it can be difficult to ask for what we need, especially if we aren’t sure what that may be. I can offer help by providing a safe and non-judgmental space to explore your needs. You are the expert on you. My role is to provide an outside perspective to help channel clearer insight into your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. Working together in this manner will allow you to build on the strengths and resiliency that are already within you.

Your friends and family don't know how alone you feel because you don't want to be a burden to them. The ghosts of your past torment you, reminding you constantly that if you had been good enough to begin with then you wouldn't have been hurt so badly. It's all your fault, your mind is racing, and you don't know how to make it stop.
