You've made it to my Meet the Therapist page so you're thinking about connecting with a licensed therapist. You're probably going back and forth with yourself, if this is a good idea or not. I want you to ask yourself these few questions, "Are you tired of feeling angry and taking it out on your loved ones?", "Are you ready truly feel okay and not just tell others you're okay?", " Do you need support with your child's behaviors that have been disrupting at home, school or in other places?", If you have answered yes to any of these questions, I invite you to connect with me, but by all means you may continue reading if you're not 100% sure of your decision.
I know all too well as someone who wears a lot of hats, that life’s daily challenges can get the best of you. I’m hear to tell you, you don’t have to face those challenges alone. As we uncover the underlying causes of how you feel, I’ll help you realize that everything is connected in our lives- linking one experience to the next. You’re not angry for no reason, you don’t feel sad just because, let’s dive a little deeper as you sit in the seat to begin your journey to EVOLVING into your best self. I do believe that we all can benefit from having someone who we can share things with, who will give us an unbiased perspective and challenge our thinking.
Many think that therapists have a magic wand but this is truly a process, like anything your working towards. I'm always ready to go through the journey with any individual that allows me the opportunity to go through it with them. So as you embark on this journey ask yourself, "Are YOU ready to leave the chair BETTER than YOU came?", if so, I invite you to take that step and contact me for your free 15 minute Encounter Session to discuss what’s going on and for you to see if I’ll be a good fit to partner with you as you EVOLVE into your best self to live your best life.
