Therapy, we all have been given different messages (good & bad) about what it “means” to utilize it. In case no one has told you lately, seeking therapy does not mean something is wrong with you. In fact, with the current uncertainties we’re navigating globally, a little additional support can be the stabilizing factor you’re searching for. Rather you are new to therapy and wondering what to discuss in session or have intermittently done therapy, I work to ensure my clients therapeutic journey is catered to meet their wants and needs. Yes, even you who has searched for an unbiased place to process the societal stigmas of non traditional non monogamous relationship(s), or explore the impact of trauma from your family of origin, LGBTQIA+ supports, or even a safe place to process racial injustices without having to overly educate someone of your oppression.
As a therapist, I recognize the strength it takes for someone to seek additional support. It is with that strength in mind, that I do my best to offer you a safe environment to embrace the journey you’re on without judgment or bias. I view the therapeutic relationship as supportive and collaborative in nature. I am NOT showing up assuming I know your walk of life. You can anticipate transparency and authenticity during our work together, along with a mixture of realism and accountability. If you’re looking for a quick fix to adjust years of repeated habits without doing your part, then I may not be the therapist you’re looking for. For those ready to do the work, I’m here to support along the way.
