Hello and welcome to my practice!
Here's the deal: You already have most of the stuff needed for personal growth.
BUT, many of us aren’t aware of this good stuff* because our upbringing, conditioning or traumatic experiences caused us to forget what we bring to the table.
*Your internal resources, such as character strengths and worthiness, which are vital to emotional well-being, self-confidence, and healthy relationships.
Getting reacquainted with this good stuff (aka getting back to The Authentic Self) is at the core of recovery, and that process can be challenging. Overcoming conditioned thinking is uncomfortable - after all, we hold on to old beliefs because they're familiar, but the truth is that they no longer serve us.
My goal as a therapist is to provide a safe environment for you to explore the thoughts and feelings that come up during this process.
I understand that every person has a unique story and I want to help you discover how your experiences led you here as we work together to accomplish your therapeutic goals.
