My Approach to Helping

We find ourselves in exciting times where therapy and mental health are being openly discussed. While these conversations have started, there is still a long way to go toward understanding. In these fast-paced times, we’ve become so used to finding quick and easy answers. Anxiety. Depression. Symptoms aren’t always enemies to be vanquished as quickly as possible. They can be messengers alerting us of deeper issues. They bare a warning that our outlook or relationships are unhealthy and in need of attention. If we choose to look inward and treat the essence of this problem, the symptoms will no longer have a reason to be.

Change follows a journey. The first steps are on safe ground, accompanied by camaraderie and good humor. And after we find our feet, we ready ourselves for the challenges ahead. Confronting our flaws, revisiting our past, shining a light on the dark corners of our minds. Not everyone will make it to the end.

But if you do, a once in a lifetime view awaits you. Our structures. Our patterns. Our character. Our essence revealed and laid before us, ready for us to understand and connect with it. We can unlock the world around us, discover what’s truly meaningful to us and enjoy life in a way that only we can. Embark Therapy, camaraderie on the adventure within.

More Info About My Practice

I started Embark to help people gain deeper insight into themselves, work through past pains, and connect them to their unique adventure within. In today’s fast paced environment making the choice to slow down and look inward can feel counter cultural. At Embark we join with you to help strengthen your ability to reflect and uncover that which has been overlooked in your history. By uncovering unprocessed emotions and allowing them to be expressed we can move on from the past while cultivating greater capacities to experience the present.

Sessions take place in person or online where we work together to cultivate an environment most conducive to your individual needs and desires. Our relationship will grow as we uncover more about you, what you’re hopping to move toward, and what tools are most suitable to catalyze you toward growth.
