Do I need therapy?
I may be biased (I am a therapist after all!) but the answer is yes.
We live in a culture where physical health is a priority, while mental, emotional, and spiritual health are merely afterthoughts. But guess what…health is health. We simply cannot expect our body to function flawlessly when our spirit is suffering. If you broke your arm would you think twice about going to a doctor for an x-ray and a cast? Of course not. Why then do we question whether our mental health struggles are valid? They are. Your brain is an organ (arguably the most important one), and just like any other organ, it can malfunction. It’s not “all in your head”,” just like it’s not “all in your lungs” when you have a cough. Mental health is health. If you are here reading this, then yes, you need therapy (we all do).
Creating a friendly, down-to-earth, and no-nonsense space for healing, I believe that authenticity is an essential component to the therapeutic relationship.
I take a holistic approach to counseling and believe that true health and wellness requires balance of mind, body, and spirit. I am passionate about meeting clients where they are, incorporating existential and cognitive-behavioral techniques as well as expressive arts modalities into my practice.
Life can be challenging. We all need a safe space to sort through the ups and downs. Let’s sit down together, talk it out, have a laugh (if you’re up for it), and get you moving in a direction that feels right.
