"This will never go away. I am stuck. I can't do this anymore. I am never going to get better". These are statements I have said to myself many times on my journey of healing chronic anxiety and chronic pain, along with statements from clients on the beginning of their healing journey. There are so many curveballs that life throws at us: pain, anxiety, depression, relationships, trauma, life transitions; the list can go on and life can feel so incredibly exhausting. It feels like you are drowning and all you want is to feel calm, in less pain, and full of life, full of energy, and at peace. You already have it inside of you!

“Our lives can become messy things. When this happens many of us invest the majority of our energy into holding our exterior lives together; while throwing the scraps to our internal life. I practice from the belief that when we are lost in the emotional weeds it is faster and less painful to have a guide who knows the ‘weedlands’ counsel us back to emotional ‘civilization’ than it is to wander in the hopes of stumbling onto a healthier path. I strive to provide counseling with warmth, peace, joy, hope, and love by accepting who you are where you are while being mindful of your hopes and goals.”

If the idea of life staying the same feels more uncomfortable than the uncertainty of change, then you are in the right place. As human beings we can do hard things and tolerate difficult situations, AND we also have our limitations. Recognizing our limitations helps us identify important changes we can make in our life so that we can maintain sanity and feel like we are thriving rather than surviving. You don’t have to turn yourself into a mindless machine for the sake of making your current circumstances “work”; let’s find a better alternative. I help adults and adolescents create a life that isn’t so painful and overwhelming.

I congratulate clients if they have taken the first step of seeking therapy/counseling. I believe that seeking treatment for oneself is a sign of health although many would associate it with pathology. Therapy is certainly not about advice but about a safe place to bring issues and put them on the table. A therapist is more of a "life witness" than a judge. Clients usually have enough judges and advice givers in their social circle. A good therapist provides resources, educational materials, positive mirroring, techniques to manage symptoms and hopefully joins with the client in acknowledging their world view.
