You’ve done your research. You’ve tried to make it work You try to put on a smile but it just doesn’t match how you feel inside. Feeling misunderstood, isolated, and alone hurts. Building relationships with other can be challenging… what more cultivating a relationship with ourselves? You’ve been told there’s no place for your thoughts or feelings. You’ve been told to “just get over it,” “grow up,”, “move on.” And yet something just feels like it’s missing even after everything you’ve accomplished, achieved, or have tried to do. You’ve done so much hard work yet you feel stuck, numb, and unsure of what comes next.
You might be wondering how therapy can possibly help. I get it. I've been there too. It hurts to think about change, let alone talk about it, when we don't know what it looks like or what to expect. That’s what I’m here for… to provide a grounding non-judgmental counter-space where we collaboratively work and explore together.
I am here to listen, to join you in your pain, and walk with you through darkness and storm within you. I strongly believe in the power of our sense of belonging and connection to begin and foster our healing process. You are in the right place, at the right time. The days of only being “seen and not heard” are coming to a halt.
