Starting therapy is difficult because you're telling yourself that I am broken and something is wrong with me, but it is the opposite. Therapy will help you open your true self to your family, friends, loved ones, and the world. I understand that asking for help can be daunting, but believe me; it will be one of the most satisfying and rewarding experiences you will ever have for yourself that will benefit everyone and everyone around you. Reaching out to a therapist can be overwhelming and, at times, frightening; exhale and take a moment, call or email and let us figure out how I can help.
Life is already hard enough; don't let yourself; bad relationships, trauma, depression, anxiety, and other emotional and/or behavioral negativity contribute to the list of things you must tackle on your own. I am here to help you in freeing yourself from all those emotional burdens that you carry on a day-to-day basis. Let me help you free yourself of the continuous emotional pain that causes you harm.
I recently received my professional license as an LPC (licensed professional counselor) to practice therapy independently. I have 20+ years of working with individuals, couples, and families on rebuilding, rectifying, and restoring their mental health to present their "whole self" to their families, loved ones, at work, and the world.
