Are you feeling like your voice is being diminished and that other things are taking over your life – drugs and alcohol, emotions, trauma, unhealthy relationships, and/or declining school and work performance? Are you having a difficult time figuring out how to strengthen your voice and loosen the grip of those things that are taking over your life? Have you tried different things to help, but they don’t seem to be working?
I believe we all have a fire within. At times, the fire can brighten or dim. Sometimes the embers can be difficult to see through the ash. I want to help you find your fire within and find out what it takes to brighten your fire. This happens through an empowering, safe, and collaborative environment. It’s amazing what possibilities can surface and what embers will brighten or be created through the therapeutic process. And yes, sometimes embers are extinguished. This journey will be filled with possibilities, strength, trust, and connection as well as struggles and accomplishments.
I will work to create an open, non-judgmental, safe, and collaborative counseling environment where you are empowered. I will walk with you during a time where you may feel alone, disconnected, dissatisfied, confused, or misunderstood. We will explore goals, strengths, and narratives in your life that you would like to be different. Through conversation, support, and hope we will work to accomplish small sustainable change. These changes will add up and it is my sincere hope that you will continue to feel more empowered and will experience increased connection and life satisfaction. Reaching out for help can be so difficult and might be one of the most difficult steps you take. Please know that I recognize that bravery and am honored that you have chosen to take this step with me.
