You are in a constant state of worry, restlessness, never enough, and don’t feel like yourself anymore. You are lost, down, unmotivated, ungrounded and are having trouble feeling value, purpose, and connection with others. You have tried everything you can think of, but it isn’t working, and you are starting to wonder if things really can ever be different for you. I believe as humans we are wired for connection and breaks or ruptures in relationship to parts of ourselves and others can lead to depression, anxiety, numbing, distorting, shame, anger, addictions, and compulsions.
I believe the things we struggle with in life are often deeply rooted so I focus simultaneously on attending to your immediate symptoms and providing tools for relief but also on the underlying ties to past experiences, wounds, and strongholds in a way that can bring full lasting transformation, healing, and wholeness to your past, present, and future.
I find it a privilege to work with adolescents and adults during periods of growth, transition, or challenge in their lives. I believe the therapeutic process should be one that is collaborative. I seek to provide a safe environment where clients feel understood, listened to, seen, and free to explore areas of their life where they desire healing, change, personal development, restoration and deepening of human relationships. I long to support, equip, and empower clients in ways that allow them to live fully into their lives authentically and wholeheartedly.
What do you like about being a therapist?
I love building relationships with clients in a way that opens a space for them to be deeply known and not alone so that they can experience deep healing and restoration. I love when striving for perfection is replaced with redemption, fear is replaced with security, and despair is replaced with hope.
What is the best advice you have been given?
“There is a crack in everything, that is how the light gets in.”
