You experience life in deep and meaningful ways, but often feel overwhelmed, out of place, and painfully alone. You have intense passions and interests that many don’t seem to share. You've been gaslighted into believing you're "over-thinking" or "too sensitive" when you've shared powerful truths and questioned the status quo. You often doubt yourself, may silence your voice out of shame and fear, and spend extraordinary energy trying to fit in. You may have felt misunderstood and dismissed by other providers, or have been labeled with all sorts of conditions that never seemed to get to the root of your experience.
Your soul longs to be seen and valued for your deep processing, profound insights, and creative ideas. When you light up with passion and curiosity, you deserve to feel connection and support. It is possible to live an empowered life that honors your unique ways of perceiving and relating to the world around you. Your intuition has been right all along.
To my fellow truth-seekers, deep-divers, nonconformists, and courageous, value-driven souls: You deserve to finally feel understood and empowered. It's time to discover and embrace your truest self through psychotherapy and psychological assessment that values lived experience over outdated stereotypes. I'm excited to hear from you - your revolution awaits!
