You feel like your life could be better, but there's something holding you back. You feel good about some parts of your life, but the ones you struggle with overshadow the positive. It keeps you from appreciating what's good.
People tell you that you should be grateful for what you have--and you are! But then you get caught up in feelings of guilt and selfishness. You try to put on a happy face and push the feelings away, isolate, or start down a road of bad decisions to distract yourself.
The cycle of self-doubt seems to get worse every time.
You might start to believe that you're not worthy of one of those happy lives that everyone else seems to have (and flaunt) on social media. It's easy to let this kind of thinking take you to dark places--places you don't feel like you can share about with anyone.
Plenty of us struggle to to feel understood. Life can be so confusing, lonely, and painful at times. The reality can seem so different than what you'd pictured that you start to feel like you're somehow defective.
You want to feel good about your life. To stop making bad choices that leave you feeling hopeless. You want to believe that you ARE worthy of the life you want.
I get it. You are not alone.
When you're looking for a therapist, you want someone who gets you. You want to feel heard and understood--and not like you're being judged.
From the moment you step foot in my office, you'll notice that my practice is designed with your comfort in mind. You'll feel warmly welcomed with a beverage and a blanket--if you so desire. You can kick off your shoes and talk about whatever you choose. This is YOUR time and nothing is too trivial to discuss.
I'm not the type of therapist that blankly stares at you and says, "Mm-hmm...and how does that make you feel?" I'm engaging, interactive, and a believer that having some laughs and fun in therapy is much more likely to promote growth and change than a sterile, textbook therapeutic relationship.
I help my clients grow with purpose.
Opening up to someone you don't know can feel a bit awkward and intimidating. I understand. My style is more relaxed in nature. I know that you didn't come to therapy to be more stressed out. No uptight vibes here.
I'll spend some time really getting to know and understand you. I'll help you pinpoint your goals for therapy. We'll have some laughs along the way. There will be goal check-ins to make sure we're moving in the right direction. More than anything, I want to be sure that the work we do is meaningful and valuable to you.
I understand that therapy is an investment--one that has the power to change your life. I respect you and your resources, so I strictly take-on clients that I believe I can help.
