We are living in a difficult & confusing time. Anxiety from being alone or staying in place can make you feel crazy or see things in our relationships that concern us. Do you feel like you need to make some changes with your life & relationships? Many factors can contribute and affect our lives that we may not realize. When we make changes to ourselves it affects those around us. Identifying these factors can help bring clarity to you & your family and develop strength for all involved. Changes and transitions in life can be tough & can cause depression, anxiety and questions. Working through this can help with overall recovery.

My ideal client is an individual who either has been contemplating change or is ready to make changes in their life and would like to have someone objective to talk with. I am open minded and love to learn from my clients. I think that continuing education is vital and that mental health is as important as physical health. My ideal client would be someone who would take what they think is beneficial from our session and practice it in their everyday life. Then we would discuss in future sessions how the practice went and what needs to be adjusted-if anything!

We all want to love, be loved, do something meaningful, and have purpose in our lives, yet all too often prior relationships and life experiences have left us with coping skills that are unhealthy, ineffective or just downright baffling. As a practice, Spotted Rabbit specializes in working with adults who have a history of childhood emotional abuse and/or neglect. Those we work with often find that they have difficulty with relationships, struggle to relax, and wish they were in more control of their lives. Additionally, several of our therapists have extra experience in LGBTQIA+ issues and/or disordered eating.

Establishing yourself, and your identity, is a lifelong process. You are not alone when you face questions including: Who am I? What is my purpose? Who do I want in my life? What do I stand for? Why am I here? When we consider these questions, along with countless others branching from these, you might find yourself overwhelmed, anxious, depressed, or frustrated. Attempting to navigate this process, you may face societal expectations, dysfunctional family dynamics, economic challenges or other stressors operating against you. While desire to be stable, authentic, and true to self is shared, your story will always be unique.
