" There’s nothing more daring than showing up, putting ourselves out there and letting ourselves be seen." Brene Brown
Have a particular life obstacle you’re trying to overcome? Sometimes seeking help from a therapist is the best way to put things into perspective. As a committed professional, I am happy to partner with you through the challenges that you are facing.
Areas of Interest
You find yourself not listening to your inner wisdom. You find it hard to say "no" to people even when you are exhausted. You take responsibility for others and their problems. You want to set better boundaries and be more assertive in a kind way. You want to trust yourself and not second guess your decisions. Let’s work together to help you find your voice and be able to set limits.
You used to be motivated and positive about life or at least had some things you are looking forward to, but lately, it's been hard to put a smile on your face. You used to be more social, but more often you just want to go home and go to bed. Your thoughts have been more negative about you and your worth. Your stomach has been in knots, and you find yourself worrying an awful lot. Let’s tackle the areas where you get tripped up and work on getting you feeling better so that you can enjoy life again.
If this sounds like you, I would welcome an opportunity to walk this journey with you. Together we can figure out what it is that you want in your life and the steps that you need to take in order to get there. I can help you build on your strengths and honor those things that you value in order for you to achieve your goals.
