You doubt that you deserve to be happy. You doubt you are worthy of being loved. You believe you are broken beyond repair. You're constantly doing things you are "supposed to" and follow the rules, yet you don't know what you want. You're unsure what brings joy into your life. You're afraid that if you follow your intuition and express yourself authentically, people will reject and abandon you. You feel exhausted from trying to make people around you happy. You want to have closeness in your relationships, but it's hard to trust people. You don't even trust yourself. You truth was not accepted in the past.

Many of us struggle with emotions and thoughts we don't know how to cope with, and behaviors we don't feel good about - and we don't know how to change this. It's difficult and frustrating to feel stuck. Working with a therapist provides needed support and connection for us as we learn to cope. Therapy can be a comfortable space to explore feelings, thoughts, and behaviors, and promote the wellness that we seek. Whether we wish to process issues from our past, address challenges in our present, or to create the future we desire - therapy is a validating and affirming space.

*ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS* The most important thing to know about traumatic stress is that it is the response to the event and not the event itself, and the response we can change no matter how much time between “then” and now! Whether we felt “too much, too young”, “too much, too long”, or “too much, too fast”, it is possible to heal the physiological, psychological, spiritual, and relational challenges we face. We can feel fully present, engaged, and connected to ourselves and those around us. I see, hear, and believe you.
