A BIT ABOUT THERAPY WITH ME
Making the decision to seek help can be the start of an empowering journey. All of us reach points where we know something has to change. But realizing that we have the power to make that change — and then actually doing it — is rarely easy. It takes grit and sometimes painfully honest reflection...and that can be tough as hell. Some of us have spent a lifetime running away from that! Yet, here you are reading this.
If you're ready to get down and dirty with the hard work, the most important thing is that you find a therapist who is a good fit for YOU. Without that good fit, we just end up spinning our wheels and further frustrated. Ain't nobody got time for that. So, let me tell you a little bit about how I operate.
(I like to think that) My personality is warm and engaging. I aim to make you feel comfortable, safe, and accepted in what can be an awkward and just plain weird situation for many. I'm also sarcastic, funny, and matter-of-fact. My goal is to create an environment where you can open up and examine aspects of yourself you may have avoided in the past. I work with you to understand why the problems you are experiencing exist and how you have the capacity to take things in a new direction.
Clients have told me I've helped them connect the dots, be more authentic, and make more constructive choices. I have also been called a Ghostbuster. When I hear feedback like that, I know I'm doing my job! For me, there’s nothing quite like the energy in the room when good "work" is being done in a session.
