My Approach to Helping
Life is tough... but so are you my darling!
I'm talking to the part in you that decided to reach out for help today, the part that has been through so much and is perhaps feeling tired and overwhelmed; the fighter in you that is not ready to give up just yet and has some hope left in them, that maybe things could get better. Trust me, I know... I'VE BEEN THERE!
My journey of self-discovery started almost a decade ago. It certainly wasn't an easy one, but in hindsight, I'm grateful for every moment of it; with the help of my therapist, I slowly learned it was safe to turn within. My life was forever changed...
Today, I get to return the favor to my fellow travelers in life, as a Licensed Therapist!
I am committed in standing by your side on this most likely bumpy, but deeply fulfilling journey to gain a better understanding of yourself and the people around you. I'll help you relate to your inner experiences from a calm, mindful place where you become more accepting of the aspects of yourself with which you’ve been struggling. I meet you where you are today and assist you in shaping your tomorrow. Together we will learn how to work WITH and FOR ourselves, rather than AGAINST ourselves.
You might ask, how we will do all that?!
I employ an integrative model and utilize a variety of therapeutic approaches in working with adult individuals, couples and families to be a healing agent and make a difference in their lives. One of my favorite Chinese proverbs says "a journey of a thousand miles, starts with a single step."
I invite you to call me for a free consultation and get started on your healing path today!
