About My Clients

Discovering your strength on a personal level can be intimidating, but we are committed to bettering our clients’ lives in whatever capacity they need. From discovering your personal passions and reviving diminished confidence to helping you rebuild your identity after challenging experiences, sometimes life works better with a compassionate professional. We have an exceptional group of therapists on staff who offer a variety of different specialties, allowing us to support you in many ways.

My Background and Approach

Always deeply rooted in compassion, our resiliency-based work is designed to help focus on what is working versus what isn’t. So often in therapy, the focus is on the struggles and challenges individuals are facing in their lives. While it is crucial to process and work through difficulties and suffering, recognizing where individuals are thriving can be life-changing. Our goal is to make sure you are aware that you aren’t just the suffering you feel and that there are already parts of your life that are helping to reinforce the resiliency we hope to help you build upon. If a major event in your past still impacts your day-to-day, we will work with you rekindle your energy and passions, returning you to the person you remember or perhaps even someone stronger than ever before. Wherever you are, whatever you need from a therapy experience, our Heal the Hurt Counseling team is here for you.
