I approach therapy with a simple question: 

"What do you want out of life, and what is holding you back from that?" 

This question, and your answers, is where we begin the journey. I look forward to hearing from you.

Listen to Understand

We all need a way to process what we're feeling.

Find a way to get the support you need.

"Most people do not listen with the intent to understand; they listen with the intent to reply.” - Stephen R. Covey, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People

It's time to change that.

It's time to set aside any shame or defensiveness and just listen.  Listen to understand.  We need this personally.  We need this in our relationships.  We need this as a country.

Get personal support

You may feel overwhelmed by everything going on in our country this year.  You may feel a lot of things you wish you didn't feel - fear, shame, guilt, confusion, denial.  It may be hard to get support from people you normally get support from - because of social distancing, differences in perspective, or everyone's margins being so depleted.  If you need a neutral place to process and get support, contact me for a session.
