We are products of our past… past environments, past relationships, past choices. You get it. It’s our normal. But sometimes, it’s not what we want for our future. Luckily, it doesn’t have to be.
We get to create and live into our future every day.
So how do we do that? Is it really that simple? Not simple, but not that hard either. That’s where I come in. As a trusted, experienced psychotherapist, I have the cherished privilege to walk beside my clients as they explore the quiet whisperings of their deepest longings and create the lives they want.
“Not so fast”, you say. You’re right. Before we are truly free to create the future and live into its possibilities, we have to deal with the unfinished of the past. Again, that’s where I come in.
As a licensed therapist, I provide the safest place possible and gently support my clients as they unpack the pain of their past. As clients encounter their memories, they frequently discover new insights and clarity. They shift the way they hold the experience and come to identify the treasures and meaning the experiences afforded them. These breakthroughs ultimately open brand new vistas to them.
That may sound scary, but we only go as far and as fast as you want to go. In therapy, you are in the driver’s seat. Although I will challenge you to grow, you get to decide what we talk about and how far we explore. My goal is to support you in ways that help you create the happiness and success you want in your life.
If you don’t work on creating the life you really want, you’ll eventually have to spend a lot of time dealing with a life you don’t want.
You may be thinking, “I’m an intelligent person. I should be able to handle this on my own.” You have probably read books and talked about it with others, but you still feel in a rut of unhappiness and confusion. Sometimes, we are too close to the problem to see it clearly. Like a fish. A fish does not know that the water in which he swims is dirty. Often sharing the burden with an empathetic set of ears and having an objective set of trained eyes on the matter can shed new light on the subject.
I am not what has happened to me. I am what I choose to become.
It takes courage to grow up and become who you really are.
