Life can be complicated, wonderful, devastating, exhilarating, and challenging. The mind as well as life’s circumstances often hinder our ability to achieve our aspirations, and we end up hurting ourselves and those we love most. Whether it’s an overwhelming feeling of incompetence and failure, struggling with negative thinking, feeling unhappy or uncomfortable with the way we look or feel, trials within our relationships, or even the relationship between food and our bodies…we are often trapped by these thoughts, feelings, and choices.

So many middle school girls are struggling socially right now. What do you do if this was supposed to be "your year" to put yourself out there and make friends, and instead you're stuck at home in your room all day? It can be hard to stay in touch with people when you’re trying to talk over a bunch of other kids in an all-class Zoom call. This is especially true for girls who feel their interests don't always line up with other girls their age--how do you meet other like-minded people who are going to really "get" you?

I firmly believe that we do not have to face life alone and that seeking help is a sign of strength, showing one’s desire to make a change. Not only is this a strength but it also supports the movement towards breaking down the stigma that exists around seeing a counselor.

It takes courage to confront pain and suffering. While suffering is a part of life and doesn’t go away, our threshold for it changes. Counseling provides a space for painful and sometimes unfair thoughts and feelings to be met with compassion and acceptance so that suffering can be transformed into healthy actions aligned with personal values. I consider it an honor to walk alongside clients as they transform their struggles and discover insights that help them live the life they want to live.
