My Approach

Nobody has a life free from pain. No matter how many times you give yourself the pep talk that everyone struggles, you may still have the nagging sense that others have things “figured out” and you don’t. The narrative of “my struggles make me less of a person than others who seem to have it all together” is a lie. This thought has the power to make you feel lonely, weak, hopeless and rob you of your sense of self-worth. Trauma, grief, anxiety, depression, intrusive thoughts, interpersonal conflict, loss of direction in life, a broken relationship, or something unidentifiable that maybe can’t be named right now can all be effects manifested from these types of beliefs. The truth is life presents all of us with challenges that can come out of nowhere and are often unwarranted.

Take your next step toward growth.
