your life, on your terms.
Here. Now. Okay. Therapy
I help trauma and loss survivors be secure in the here and now, connect with their inner child, and live life on their own terms.
We have all faced adversity – unfortunately, going through painful experiences is a given.
Sometimes it makes us feel like our problems are not important enough, big enough, serious enough to share. WELL, THEY ARE!
Not processing our stuff can lead to mental health issues like anxiety, depression, addiction, and other mood or personality disorders.
I believe we all deserve to work through the pain and live happy lives on our terms.
Here. Now. Okay.
“We know what we are, but not what we may be”
Ensure that you know everything about how our sessions are going to work before we start and answer all your questions about me and therapy throughout.
Offer you a safe, judgement-free space to work through your stuff whether it’s online or in person.
Welcome ANY feelings you bring – there are no ‘good’ or ‘bad’ emotions – there are the ones we think are acceptable and the ones we think are not. Well, they all are acceptable and very welcome.
Express my thoughts and emotions freely and kindly – I am a human being and what you bring into the room is going to affect me, there is nothing wrong with that.
Protect your confidentiality and autonomy at all times.
Commit to giving you my best service by adhering to ethical protocol, having regular supervision, benefitting from continuous professional development.
