You have a lot of life experience and have faced some tough challenges along the way. On the outside, you might seem like someone who is strong, capable, and has it together, but on the inside, you’re struggling.
You never thought life would be this hard. Especially during this time of uncertainty, meeting life’s many demands seems like a burden. Feeling stuck and dealing with tough feelings is preventing you from moving forward and living the life you’ve always dreamed of having.
You might be dealing with:
- Feeling stressed and overwhelmed.
- Grieving a loss, whether it’s the death of a loved one, the end of a relationship, or one of the many other kinds of losses we might experience.
- Problems with letting go of the past.
- Navigating life’s changes and challenges.
You don’t have to do this alone. Therapy can help. Making the decision to begin therapy is a healthy first step toward making positive changes in your life and finally doing something for yourself.
I see therapy as a journey, and your journey will be unique. It will require work on your part and may not follow a straight path. There may be hills to climb, and the terrain will be rocky and uneven at times – this is normal. You may slip back a few steps before moving forward again, and you may discover that it was those “backward” steps that led to insights and provided you with the strength to move forward and continue toward reaching your goals. I would welcome the chance to accompany you on your journey toward long-lasting, healthy change.
When I first meet you, my most important goal will be to create a safe, warm, and welcoming space so that the work of therapy can begin. I view therapy as a partnership. I bring knowledge about counseling and human behavior to the work we do, but you are the expert on your life, and you will be the one to decide where your therapeutic journey will take you.
During our first few sessions, we will get to know each other. We will begin to talk about your goals and what you would like to gain from therapy. Since each person is unique, I will draw from a variety of evidence-based practices but tailor my approach to meet your specific needs..
As we work together, your goals may include learning new skills to cope with stress and change, coming to terms with losses you’ve experienced, healing from painful past situations, improving your mood, identifying unhelpful patterns, learning to be compassionate toward yourself, and whatever other goals you identify.
Once people complete therapy, they often feel stronger, a sense of peace, more hopeful, and have the skills and tools they need to grow and thrive in the years ahead.
Please feel free to reach out to me to talk about how therapy can bring positive changes to your life. I would welcome the chance to speak with you.
