About Me

Dear Future Client:

What story are you telling yourself that is causing you turmoil?

Life is lived around the story you have decided to create for yourself. It is how humans attempt to make sense of the world we live in.

Where did you get them? You have created these stories through experiences, people, emotional circumstances, trauma, family, and anything else that has made a lasting impact on you.

Your stories are personal, and may cause shame or guilt. Maybe your story manifests negative habits and behaviors you have clung to for survival for years, and they may be difficult to overcome. 

I am passionate about the work I do because I have the privilege of witnessing the real, genuine, nitty gritty of life with you.

Sometimes it’s ugly, difficult, or hard to look at; however, I choose to sit on the other side of the couch because I believe that there is power in sitting in your authentic truth that creates lasting change.

When we are heard without judgement and are met with understanding, healing can begin to occur.

It is a powerful experience to sit with another human being, navigating through universal emotions such as pain, love, regret, acceptance, hurt, depression, anxiety, forgiveness, rejection, guilt, betrayal, rage… the list goes on and on. 

We all have the power to show up as authentically as we want in this life!  To be brave enough to peek into your dark corners and crevices of your life that have been neglected and are unkempt is courageous.

If you choose to accept the mission of self exploration, I will walk alongside you to truly understand your journey, why you are here, where you intend to go, and how I can support you to get there. 

During our first free phone consultation, I will work to learn more about you, and why you are choosing to begin your therapeutic journey now. Collaboratively we will find out if we would be a good therapeutic fit, and then decide how to get started.

As we begin to build a therapeutic relationship, I will point out things along the way you may have been blind too, we will examine certain aspects of your life, and begin to do the work of psychotherapy. 

You may be thinking, my dark corners aren’t dark enough to get help yet. I’m managing just fine. That may be true, and it’s possible that one day those places may cause chaos for you elsewhere. Not cleaning out that dark corner may cause you issues in your kitchen, backyard, or even bedroom. You getting my drift here? 

If you are ready and willing to look in those places, I am hoping you will trust me with the opportunity to stand alongside you as you do this.

It is not easy work, but the work IS worth it! 

The reason I am a psychotherapist is because I believe that at any moment, at any time, any one person can make a choice that can change everything else in their world. 

I’ve been blessed to see it happen in my clients lives, and I hope to walk alongside you and witness your own personal manifestation come alive. 

I’d love to have the privilege to walk with you on your healing journey.
