As we all know, life is hard, and people need the help and support of other people. Due to how we interact with the world and how the world interacts with us, the ability to trust and connect with others can be challenging. When working with clients, I believe an essential component of the therapeutic relationship is trust. I want clients to leave each session feeling heard and validated. Renewing your emotional and mental health is the best way to lay a solid foundation for a happy and fulfilling life.
My goal is to provide the support needed to overcome past life hurdles that continue to affect your present life. In sessions, we will explore how you learned to think, function, and persevere and offer you healthier options to improve your quality of life. We accomplished this through client-centered conversations that provide meaningful insight, honesty, and empathy in a non-judgemental space where you can feel safe to explore and embrace your feelings.
What excites me the most as a therapist is helping clients recognize that they have more control over their lives than they may realize. I encourage deeper self-awareness to learn and identify triggers and poor coping mechanisms that affect daily functioning and relationships with others. I promote developing positive self-esteem and the confidence needed to feel empowered to deal with unexpected and difficult life challenges. My focus in therapy is to help you identify your needs and wants, utilize effective communication skills, and develop healthy boundaries within your relationships.
Life is unpredictable and can be challenging; I want to help you learn how to cope better and handle whatever changes come your way.
A famous African proverb states that "it takes a village to raise a child." I would add that it takes a village to raise a child and a village to sustain the parent. I am motivated and driven to help restore the village.
