More Info About My Practice

You'll receive a warm welcome, respect, and a non-judgemental positive regard at Healing for Mental Health, LLC. Therapy is a collaborative process. Unfortunately, there are no magic cures. I promise you, you will get out of the process, what you are willing to put into it. I will equip you with new tools; an educated perspective; help you uncover your inner desires and authentic self; help you get motivated; set goals; make a plan; be your best cheerleader; provide a sounding board; validate your experiences...but the truth is... you will do the work to create your best self. I will join with you and walk alongside you and support you through your journey to health and wholeness.

My View on the Purpose of Psychotherapy

I've often said therapy is like taking a big pile of thoughts, feelings, ideas, desires and concerns that are in a big jumbled heap, on the inside of you out, and setting them on the table so that one might see them clearly. Then you sort through them (getting rid of what you don't want and saving what you do, maybe adding a few new ideas into the mix); then put them back into proper order, where they belong. Then you may live in peace with yourself and the world around you. When we have peace on the inside; the world might fall down around us and we will be stronger to survive it.

There is power in telling our story! Having an anonymous, non-judgmental, authentic, empathetic listener; one who encourages you; and validates your thoughts, feelings and experiences is a priceless gift! No man is an island, and none of us have all of the answers!
