When we begin noticing that some part of our-self is getting in the way of goals, health, and livelihood, we begin to search for the place this reactivity resides. Why do I get angry/irritable for seemingly no reason? What inside of me is driving this depression that takes over? Why do I keep having nightmares and flashbacks? Why do I worry when I don't need to? Something deep inside erupts through the surface and we find ourselves somewhere in between confused, out of control, in some sort of pain, and alone. Treading these waters is hard!

"Daring greatly means the courage to be vulnerable. It means to show up and be seen. To ask for what you need. To talk about how you’re feeling. To have the hard conversations."- Brené Brown. Counseling can feel intimidating, nerve-racking, and desperate; I get it. And the reality is we cannot live life alone and we cannot heal alone. We need each other for support, encouragement, empowerment and restoration. My role as a counselor is to partner with you in your journey toward integrated wholeness and health and to provide you a safe space to be vulnerable, courageous, real and imperfect; for you to come as you are and to just be.

People seek counseling for a variety of reasons that can range from struggling with life transitions or self-worth issues to coping with crisis or trauma. These situations can cause us to feel anxious, depressed, hopeless, lost, or alone and are often influenced by factors over which we feel we have no control. As human beings, our instinct is to improve our lives, our well being and heal our pain; however, sometimes we endure the suffering or find ourselves stuck in unhealthy patterns because we are scared, feel powerless, or just don't know how or where to start.

Making the commitment to counseling is the most difficult part of the therapeutic process. When we are debilitated by anxiety or depression just making a phone call can feel daunting. In some cases, unresolved trauma or memories can induce self-harm; the idea of receiving care can feel undeserving. Chances are when we are avoiding care there is a reason. Committing to change entails challenging unhealthy patterns or cycles. These coping strategies are learned behaviors that temporarily protect us from uncomfortable emotions while keeping us from working through what's really going on.
