About

Are you hoping to find a solution out of a specific problem? Are you looking to make improvements in your life but just don't know where to start? Do you struggle coping with a chronic illness or chronic pain disorder? Do you find yourself feeling "stuck", unmotivated, or unable to experience the same joy as before? Are you constantly worried about something bad happening? Are you having difficulty sleeping? Have you experienced a loss, whether it's the death of a loved one or the loss of a future life you imagined? Is your relationship on the rocks or suffered broken trust? Is anxiety taking over your life?
If you answered yes to any of the above and want an unbiased, non judgmental, outside support, then give therapy a try. I understand how difficult it can be to tell a stranger your private thoughts, struggles and pain. Be assured that my goal is to create a welcoming space with compassion and an open mind. I tend to use variety of approaches catered to you.
I do not assume to know you. I strive to build mutual trust, shared decision making and understanding of you. I do this by asking questions. Questions that will help me begin to know you and help you become more aware of yourself. Everything starts with awareness. Start here to work with me: my.findoctave.com/onboarding. LYRA members email me directly.
