Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
An Invitation to Heal and Grow --- Discomfort and painful feelings can be the beginning of growth and true understanding of ourselves. Sometimes we adapt and conform to get along in the world and that takes us away from who we really are. We disown parts of ourselves and start to live robotically rather than authentically. When our inner lives and outward behaviors start to drift too far apart, we develop symptoms of emotional and physical discomfort. Those symptoms are there to get our attention. By reclaiming lost or unknown pieces of ourselves, we can grow towards greater wholeness and satisfaction within our lives. Psychotherapy is creative, collaborative and daunting at times. I believe in developing a relationship that will support you to take on that work. Using mindfulness-based therapies, together we can build an understanding of your values, strengths and goals in order to empower you to change your behaviors to be in line with the life you truly want to live. I offer a free 20-minute phone consultation to determine if we are a good fit and to decide if you are ready to make that first appointment.
