People choose therapy at different chapters in their story and for different reasons. Choosing to speak to a therapist can sometimes be scary, hopeful, challenging, or all of the above. Whatever challenges and hopes you find in your current chapter, my goal is to help you find the support that fits you best.
As your therapist, I hope we can build a relationship where you feel supported in your authenticity. I embrace people from all backgrounds and hope to intentionally create an environment where you can feel safe providing feedback. Therapy is often a great place to practice setting boundaries, explore vulnerability, process trauma, and learn how to have challenging conversations in the safety of knowing your therapist will still be there, and this is a place where we can practice all of those and more if you choose. You are the author of your own story, and I encourage you to share as much as you like at whatever pace is most comfortable for you. Healing is a journey with no timeline or linear path, and I will always do my best to walk alongside you wherever you are in that journey and no matter what obstacles you are up against. There are no dragons so fierce that I won’t be ready to face them with you.
