Does this sound like you?
You’re finding it difficult to be present in your life and/or relationships which feels isolating.
You’re wondering about how your past experiences may have shaped the person you are today.
You find it hard to accept things that have happened in your past.
You aren’t feeling in control of your life.
You’re curious about your identity and purpose, so you want to get to know yourself better.
You’re having trouble being authentic and vulnerable with other people.
You constantly worry about the past or future, which makes it hard to live in the moment.
Anxiety and/or depression are getting in the way of your ability to live life the way you want to.
You don’t know if your problems are “serious” enough to talk about with a therapist.
You’re simply not happy with where you are in life right now, but you don’t know how to ask for help.
Can Therapy Help?
Taking care of your mental health is just as important as taking care of your physical health. If you’ve made it this far, something is probably pulling you to spend more time on yourself and your mind. There is something that can be done to improve the current situation you are in, and therapy will allow you to figure out what that is. YOU matter, and you only get one life to
live, so why not do what you can to feel your best? Let therapy give you a space dedicated solely to thinking about yourself amidst all the noise that exists in life.
How I can help…
In my opinion, the most important part of therapy is connection. I feel strongly about building a relationship with each of my clients and a foundation that allows you to feel safe, accepted, and comfortable. You are the expert of your own life, so as your therapist, I’m here to try to understand you to the best of my ability, while also acknowledging that we have different life
experiences. I strive to foster a relationship with clients that allows me to challenge them toward their goals for growth, while simultaneously allows my clients to provide me with feedback on what works and/or does not work for them therapeutically.
As a therapist, I am endlessly curious about my clients. I strive to always ask questions that help me better understand you, which may also help you better understand yourself. I believe that everything that has been a part of your life including cultural identities, family, relationships, and environment has led you to the moment you are in today. Through therapy, we can explore all of these aspects of your life together and figure out how they have impacted you and the current challenges you are facing.
If you’re feeling nervous about starting therapy, you are not alone! It is completely normal to have some hesitation about the unknowns that therapy may hold. As your therapist, I am aware of how therapy may seem scary, and I’m here to support you and talk through these fears. I want to help you work toward living the life that you want to live!
When I’m not at work…
When I’m not at work, I’m usually walking my German Shepard, Billie, at the park or embarking on a road trip to find some cool nature spots! I also love trying new restaurants, and my current food obsession is sushi 🙂
