You might be feeling a bit worn down, overwhelmed, burnt out, maybe even hopeless that you will ever feel “ok” again.
Life gets overwhelming, for everyone. But you don’t have to go through it alone.
As someone who has wrestled with seasons of anxiety and depression, I understand how intimidating it can feel to start therapy. Over the course of my personal therapy, I have come to realize that the most helpful role a therapist can take is to hold space for hope.
“Sometimes hope is a radical act, sometimes a quietly merciful response, sometimes a second wind, or just an increased awareness of goodness and beauty.” Anne Lamott
My goal as a therapist is for you to feel authentically seen, heard, and hopeful. I utilize Person Centered and Attachment Focused theories, meaning I strive to create an environment where you feel safe enough to explore your authentic self.
With kids and teens I implement Play and Art therapy and often draw from somatic interventions.
Therapy is like doing a puzzle together. You come in with all these pieces and maybe some of the puzzle already put together, and I get the honor of joining you. I may notice that the reference picture is upside down, or maybe there are corner pieces nearby, or maybe you just need some company while you deconstruct the part that once fit together so well. My role is to encourage, support, and equip you as you wrestle with the complexities of the puzzle. You will find that I love analogies and metaphors because my brain tends to process visually.
