Let’s step into this journey of transformational healing together.
You may be wondering what working with me as your therapist will look like...
Here you are, courageously making the choice to seek change. Which reveals that you are capable of so much more than you may believe.
You will begin to recognize that there is freedom in having the option to relearn and form new habits. This will serve you well in your present circumstances and help you create the emotional freedom to pursue and enjoy the life you have been longing for.
As your therapist, I will have the advantage of looking at your life from a bird’s eye view. This allows me to speak into your life, providing you with new insights and alternative routes for you to consider.
Whether they have been learned from positive and healthy modeling or adverse experiences in which we used trauma responses and coping skills to create safety for ourselves, these behaviors become the ruts in the dirt roads of our brain. Our habits.
We will delve right into illuminating these habits to bring them into your consciousness. Once you have awareness we then tackle them together by understanding the why, the how, evaluating them and deciding whether they are behaviors that need to be carried around with us and used in every relationship, every situation.
Habits of thought are some of the most destructive habits that leave us feeling stuck or worse, burdened with severe depression and anxiety.
Once you have gained awareness into your habits we will begin the process of learning how to actively choose a new route, creating new habits.
Freedom comes with the realization that with active choice, effort, and time habits can be changed.
Practices from Reality Therapy and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy are also used in therapy when appropriate. I focus on experiential therapies that have been scientifically proven to reconnect you to your true self in a timely manner.
And that’s my priority, to help you get on track soon.
It was not the class itself but the professor that changed the course of my degree plan, my career, my life. It was brought to my attention that life was too short to not follow the passions of our hearts and to spend it trying to please other people.
I realized that the experiences and traumas that I walked through did not happen to me, but for me. And for all the people that I would get to impact and help along my journey as a counselor.
My passion for growth and healing comes from a place of knowing what is possible. Spreading hope and empowerment to others so they can experience the freedom that I have experienced, is my calling.
