About My Clients
Being hard on yourself for feeling sad, mad, or hurt doesn’t work and intensifies shame. Thinking it will all get better hasn’t worked. You keep limping along – and now it’s worse. Get permission to feel what you feel and find validation. So… permission to drop the “f bomb” and tell it like it is. Counseling is about being in a safe space, being allowed to say anything and feel anything without being judged.
My Background and Approach
Get the tools you need to live the life you want. Sometimes we get stuck, unsure how to peel through our junk. We need a little help identifying strategies that work. Part of therapy is gaining insight to familiar, but ineffective patterns of thinking. Sometimes, all we need is a slight tweak, a different way of looking at things, that leads to a change. It takes courage to talk to a stranger about this stuff. That’s why one of my main goals is to be on your side, to help you feel heard, accepted, and comfortable. As you become more at ease, I will sometimes challenge your stinkin’ thinkin’ and nudge you out of your comfort zone. This process is to help you reach your goals. Just know, you will set the pace for therapy.
