Looking to improve your sport/mental performance? Better understand your gender, sexuality, or relationship identity? Process a history of interpersonal trauma? Our stories are our greatest power, and yet, can be difficult to share with others. In therapy, I encourage clients to tell their stories as accurately and meaningfully as possible (including the "ugly" stuff!) to pave a path for moving forward. I equally recognize that not all mental health concerns are individually determined, and encourage clients to explore the impact of their social, intergenerational, and environmental histories and resources to promote healing/growth.
