My Approach

A lack of direction in your individual story can make life appear aimless and lacking purpose. Maybe you have a story that is difficult and complex to tell, isolating you from others. It’s possible you don’t even understand the narrative progression of your life! How are you supposed to ground yourself in confidence when you are unsure about your purpose?

Narrative therapy is looking at your whole life story from a positive, empowering perspective and honestly asking, “What’s working right now?” We’ll identify how you kept strong in life, while also  evaluating what isn’t serving you well. Everyone has faulty narratives developed from previous experiences that operate in our current life that mess us up! We will work together to examine those faulty narratives and do the hard work of correcting them.My goal is that you would leave our time together with a strong sense of the story that makes you uniquely human.

We will do exactly that by exploring your own unique story! If you feel helpless in your current circumstances, I can come alongside you by providing comfortable space for you to move into forward motion. The path towards restoration, healing and hope is close.

Take your next step toward growth.
