I specialize in coming alongside people as they walk through the uncomfortable, messy parts of life. I bring a no-nonsense, solution-oriented approach to therapy, helping you come to a place of contentment with life as it is, not as you wish it was (or even as you deserve it to be). Because true peace comes when we come to a place of acceptance: no longer relying on external factors as the source of our happiness.
Therapy with me is a little different than what you may have encountered in the past. A lot of mental health work these days is very "feel good", leading many to believe that being mentally well is simply being happy or un-phased by the circumstances around them. I believe you're allowed to be angry or anxious or upset when life gets messy. Therapy is simply about equipping you to process and cope with those very real emotions in a productive, healthy way.
Our thoughts create our life experience. Traumatic events, chronic stress, and negative self-thoughts can keep you trapped in a state of unhappiness. Becoming aware of negative thought patterns can give you the emotional freedom you are searching for. When you change the way you think, the way you perceive and experience the world around you also changes.
