If you're reading this your journey toward wellness has already begun and you've decided to answer the call for more. The journey is worth it, but, as you've discovered, not easy. Sometimes it's unclear where to even start or go next. There are times we are overwhelmed by our emotions making it feel unsafe to take one more step or have blocked feeling altogether. Beloved, being well and healing IS possible and the process, though undoubtedly uncomfortable and uniquely yours, does not have to be gone through alone.

All human beings have within themselves the capacity for living happy, meaningful lives. We are meant to thrive, however it is quite common for distressing life experiences to interfere with our natural way of being. Sometimes obstacles are known to us, but have been resistant to change. Others remain hidden, but what we do notice clearly are psychological and emotional symptoms of distress (depression, fear and anxiety, emotional reactivity, irritability, addictions, etc.). These symptoms can significantly impact our quality of life, and almost always cause problems in relationships.

Are you dealing with anxiety, sadness, shame, grief, trauma or stuff you really want to let go of in your life? Or perhaps you are feeling a sense of not being good enough, struggling with confidence and self-criticism? Pain may show up as feeling numb or angry, withdrawing from school or work, family and friends. Hiding the stress doesn't help you feel better. My approach is collaborative and non-judgmental, focused on helping you deal with pain from the past and deal with present challenges with greater ease and confidence. If you'd like to feel better about yourself and your life, I can help you get there.

Life's journey can be full of crisis, loss, grief and trauma. These experiences can activate fear in the primal brain, altering patterns of behavior, create limitations in ones perception, lead to relationship issues, low self-esteem and addictions. If these problems are left unresolved, they can lead to physical and mental health problems as well as a weakened spirit, affecting ones core vitality for life. My spiritual approach provides clients with a safe, nurturing and compassionate environment where trust is easily built within the therapeutic relationship so that healing can take place. https://counselorandhealer.com

The goal of therapy is not to get you to hate your parents. Parents were usually doing their best and, being human, made mistakes. The task of therapy is often understanding how these past parental mistakes shaped the client's present patterns of thinking, feeling and interaction. I help clients identify and change these patterns and, in the process, resolve their feelings about the parents. I work best for clients: who want to understand themselves, who appreciate a thoughtful and safe space, and, who are willing to do the work to make that change happen.

One of the core reasons people come to counseling is that they feel a lack of connection. Sometimes that connection is to others in their life; loved ones, partners, friends, or co-workers. Just as often that lack of connection is to themselves; fear, trauma, sexuality or shame. Fostering those connections with transparency, brevity and compassion is something I love to do. Helping people find understanding and to build coping skills that aren’t just instant gratification which drown out the real issues we’ve got (can feel good though). Skills and insight that’s more meaningful and effective than avoidance, or memes on Instagram.
