"There is no question, we are living in hard times right now. Anxiety and stress are higher than ever. Maybe it's been a while since you've really felt like yourself. Maybe you’ve lost direction, maybe you aren’t in the relationship you want or maybe the feelings of loneliness have become overwhelming despite having a “great life”. You aren’t alone. What do you care about? How do you live the life you want? I can help you get on a path that aligns with your values and your sense of self. Not sure who that is? That’s ok! We’ll start there!"

"Life can be complicated, overwhelming, challenging, and messy. People don’t tend to fit in neat little boxes, but I find that beautiful. The people I comes in contact with never cease to amaze and inspire me with their stories, struggles, and victories. I am committed to creating a safe and nonjudgemental space for people to explore healing and reconnect with themselves, others, and with hope beyond ourselves. My focus is relational and I believe this is the most healing aspect of any treatment modal. “We are wounded in relationship, and we heal in relationship.” "

Daily worries and critical thoughts about yourself keep you from opening up to others. You feel like you can't be yourself, so instead you try to be the person you feel expected to be. You just want friends that you feel comfortable around and a job that doesn't leave you feeling completely drained and inadequate by the end of the day. You're sick of feeling paralyzed by the anxiety and depression that you carry inside. Nobody knows how much you are struggling and you're tired of feeling so alone. "

Narrative Therapists
Narrative Therapy uses the client's storytelling to indicate the way they construct meaning in their lives, rather than focusing on how they communicate their problem behaviors. Brentwood Narrative Therapy embraces the idea that stories actually shape our behaviors and our lives and that we become the stories we tell about ourselves. There are helpful narratives we can choose to embrace as well as unhelpful ones. Although it may sound obvious, the power of storytelling is to elevate the client--who is the authority of their narrative--rather than the therapist, as expert. Check these therapists for find Narrative Therapy in Brentwood.
