I believe that each of us is confronted with things that are devastating, painful, and overwhelming at different times in our lives. It is at these times we are called to find the courage that lies within us, to face whatever the difficulties are, and to tap into our internal strengths and resilience to survive the experiences.
Often, the pain and devastation that lingers from these experiences is something that can continue to hurt us. When this happens, we may find that we need additional support, professional guidance, understanding, and compassion so that we can heal the parts of ourselves that were hurt and are hurting because of these painful and difficult experiences.
I am a lifelong learner and, because of that, I continue to seek and learn about the most updated, research-based clinical practices that are proven to work and help people transform their lives. Since the early 1990s, I’ve done just that as I continue to strive to learn and grow as a therapist. I learn every day. It’s not just a cliché – I do learn new things every day. I continually read, gather information, improve my skill set, and seek specialized training so I can offer the most proven, appropriate, and helpful services and care possible.
This allows me to help people learn, change, grow, and support their healing – it’s how I honor and fulfill what I am professionally meant to do: help people improve their relationship with themselves, grow closer to others, and begin their healing from their emotional pain and trauma so they can live their lives in new ways that promote health, hope, and joy.
You deserve support, encouragement, and grace, and it would be a privilege to walk alongside you as you make the necessary changes in your life that will enable you to start living the life you want and deserve.
