My Approach to Helping
Have you found yourself just surviving but not really living? Do you feel like you try and try but feel like nothing is working? You crave lasting relationships and freedom and you?re tired of sleepless nights where your mind won?t stop churning. You?re anxious and you want to figure it all out. You're tired of living this way.
Today is the day you can begin the journey and process of change and healing. Today is the day you can begin walking the path to living a life worth living.
I help individuals, adults and teens, who've experienced the unimaginable break free from its rule over their life and relationships. I help teens who are struggling with anxiety and relationships learn how to manage their emotions and learn to have great relationships. I help couples find or restore passion and commitment in their relationship. I can help you find hope and healing when you wonder if that is even possible.
I specialize in working with clients ages 13 and up who struggle with anxiety, depression, relationship issues, and traumatic experiences. I provide counseling in my office in Wake Forest, NC in addition to serving the surrounding communities of Raleigh, Youngsville, Rolesville, Louisburg, and Knightdale.
More Info About My Practice
I'm a therapist, but some call me a Land of Darkness Escape Guide. I help people shed darkness from things past or present and walk into their future light whole and strong. Sometimes I know it feels like it will always be the way that it is and you?ve tried everything but nothing has changed. Maybe you?ve been too scared to try anything and you just feel stuck. It is okay not to be okay, but you don't have to stay there!
In a safe, soothing environment, I use research-tested methods to help you change and view life in a whole new way. Together we deal with the things causing your struggles. I get in the ditch with you, and together we walk out.
Why Going to Therapy Does Not Mean You are Weak or Flawed
There can be a strong stigma associated with seeing a counselor. It's true that when many people seek the help of a counselor things are not going well in their lives. Counseling, though, is less like a doctor's visit where you get a prescription and all is well. Counseling is more like going to the gym - except this is exercise for your mind and soul. Having an independent person to talk about life challenges or past hurt or trauma can help you gain perspective. Also, your counselor may be able to see things that you can't see because you're in the middle of something.
Going to therapy can help you be a better person, a better relationship partner, or a better parent (or all three!). Therapy can help you learn new skills to help you communicate better or be more assertive. And if things are in a tough spot, therapy can help you see light in the darkness. Seeking therapy isn't a sign of weakness - it's a sign of intelligence. You seek out experts to help you with plumbing concerns, construction projects, and medical care. Why wouldn't you seek out an expert in helping you meet the deeper goals you have in life?
