“You are not weak just because your heart feels so heavy.”
~ Andrea Gibson
My Approach & Philosophy
I believe that everyone can become the version of themselves they want to be. I also believe that healing is a journey with many twists and turns. Life can be beautiful and wonderful, and at other times it can feel like we’re being thrown one gut punch after another. We all need someone to lean on in order to keep going sometimes. We can’t do this alone forever!
My philosophy is informed by my lived experience. I have had my own struggles with anxiety, ADHD, identity exploration, and self-esteem. I have persevered through those struggles with the help of therapy. I have tricked myself into believing things would never get better many times. I had to learn how to show up for myself because I realized that no one was coming to “save” me – if I wanted things to change, I had to start with myself. Once I started being gentle with myself, getting really honest in therapy, and addressing the patterns in my life that led me to wallow in self-doubt, things actually got better.
During our time together, silliness, tears, screaming and cursing are all welcome. I’m here to meet you where you are and to hold space for you in a judgment-free zone. This is YOUR time. Together, I’ll encourage you to embrace radical self-acceptance and release any long-held limiting beliefs about yourself. Trust me, that transformative power is already within you.
