Always a bit of a seeker, my relationship and career road has been winding, sometimes frustrating, and often has taken me to stops along the way I hadn’t planned on visiting. There have been a few flat tires, and more than a few times where I lost the map completely. So I did what many of us do: I refused to believe I was lost and I soldiered on. And on. And when soldiering on kept leading me back to the old, worn-out places I was trying to leave behind, I finally admitted I needed a compass and a better map. I enlisted the help of others: therapists, mentors, and teachers. With guidance, my circuitous path eventually pointed me toward my true North — my values, the things that mattered most to me: connecting with others and finding meaning and purpose in life when things are hard. My work as a psychotherapist is the best way I’ve found to live these values.
A life’s journey is rarely a straight line from point A to point B. The art is finding the individual road map for you.
What should you look for in a therapist? I suggest that more than anything you find someone you feel comfortable with. Someone who gets you. Someone who pays attention to the things you say, and the things you can’t quite bring yourself to say. Someone who can help you locate your compass, decipher your individual map, and point you toward your true North. I love seeing my clients grow toward their potential and embrace lives that have meaning for them. I am honored to do this work, and I do not take this responsibility lightly.
I offer a complimentary 20 minute consultation so you can decide if I am the right therapist for you.
