I believe that persons seeking counseling for any reason are asking themselves, “Who am I?” Professional counseling helps you return to the authentic self that you were born with before life experiences pulled you away from it. Therefore, I ask you to bring to our sessions the thing that is generating the most energy for you that day; the good, the bad, and the ugly. It may not seem to apply to the reason that you started therapy, but it will. Because everything matters.

Feeling overwhelmed? There are kids, parents, work, spouse, school, and when you think of all the things your head feels like it might explode. When you add in anxiety, depression, frustration from being unable to focus, grief, or any other mental health struggle, it probably adds to the whirlwind you feel like you're stuck in. Maybe you've been told "it could be worse," or to "be grateful," but this didn't make you feel any better. No matter how big or small you think your situation is, your emotions and what you're feeling are valid and important, and worthy of acknowledgment and exploration. It's time to take care of you and seek help, in a safe, empathetic, and judgment-free space. Once you feel heard and validated, we can dive in together to explore where your feelings may come from. I understand it can be hard to reach out for help, but I will meet you where you are emotionally and proceed at your pace. Allow me to join you in your journey.
