My Approach to Helping
I would like to begin by thanking you for taking the time to read my profile. I would like you to know that I am aware of the courage it takes to begin searching for someone who will work closely with you and assist you in finding direction and solutions to life's issues and challenges. I can not promise that I will be able to provide you with all of the solutions you are looking for but I can guarantee you that I will work diligently with you to assist you in finding the best answers and solutions to the challenges you are facing. I have a passion for helping people overcome lifelong trials that seem to be stealing their ability to enjoy and live life to the fullest. As human beings, we all have issues in life that seem to keep us stuck in unhealthy or unwanted behavior patterns. I would like to help you break the patterns that hinder your ability to succeed. I have a favorite quote I would love to share with you, "What we don't repair, We repeat." This is a quote I live by in my practice as a therapist, as a wife, and as a mother. A really important part of my therapy practice is assisting you with finding your passion for life, answering the questions of what gives my life meaning? and what do I see my purpose in life being? It is my personal and professional opinion that life's meaning and purpose change with the different stages of life. I enjoying helping people understand that life does not have to be stagnant and that the changes and challenges we face in life can be viewed as a pathway for growth and healing even though it may get bumpy along the way. Life for me, was meant to be enjoyed and lived abundantly. With the help of the therapeutic process, I have faith it can be. Once again thank you for taking the time to visit my profile. My hope for you is that you find the answers you are searching for.
More Info About My Practice
I would like to share with you my passion for helping clients overcome unresolved psychological trauma and family of origin issues that seem to keep them from living the life they were meant to live. As a trauma survivor, I know what it feels like to think that life might never be the same or that I will never be able to overcome what has happened to me. My greatest successes are those in which I have been able to take lessons learned along my journey of healing and pass them on to clients who are in need of letting go of past hurt and pain in order to reach the life long dreams and goals that forever have felt out of reach.
I am currently certified as a Clinical Trauma Professional and working toward certification as a Clinical Trauma Therapist with Judy Crane in Ocala Florida through "Spirit to Spirit Healing," It has always been my passion to pay it forward and this is my primary purpose for becoming a therapist.
My View on the Purpose of Psychotherapy
I would like to share with you my view on the purpose of Psychotherapy. In my personal and professional opinion Psychotherapy provides you with a safe non-judgmental space to be listened to and to share your deepest concerns and greatest desires. It is becoming involved in a process that allows you to gain insight and awareness into who you really are, what gives your life meaning and purpose, and gain a sense of self-acceptance. Together you and I will work to establish a relationship built on trust, mutual respect, and honor. Within this relationship it is my hope you will be able to begin your journey toward the growth and self acceptance needed to live a life of purpose, meaning, peace, and joy.
What I Say to People Concerned about the Therapy Process
What I would say to anyone who is concerned about the Therapy Process is this, It takes courage to seek help. Courage is defined as feeling fear but not letting fear stop you from doing what you need to do to overcome. Feeling hesitant or anxious about the process is very normal and expected. I will do my very best to provide you with a place of acceptance and comfort that will help you overcome those feelings. What I have found true for most clients I see is once they come in the anxiety is lessened and they feel grateful to have a place they can come to that allows for them to be seen, heard, and accepted. I have found that being listened to and finding a safe place to share your thoughts, desires, and hurts, can be healing in itself.
