Therapy wasn’t the only thing that saved me from becoming a perpetually wounded and insecure person, but it certainly played a very influential role. Having experienced the death of a parent during childhood, as well as a 13-year immersive time inside a coercive spiritual group, I have had a lot to work through. My own work with a therapist has provided me with self-awareness, self-acceptance, and a tailored bag of tricks that help keep me and my relationships growing and resilient. This is one big reason why I was drawn to this work.
I have also always been genuinely curious about the deeper undercurrents that drive people, and the ways in which they can open to real life changes. I love to listen and understand. Having experienced big shifts in the lives of my clients through our counseling work together over the last five years, I feel grateful and humbled that I get to do this work.
