This is the first step.
When I talk to my clients about mental health I tell them that we all have a river of heartache that runs through us. My goal as a counselor is to help you stand in that river, feeling the current and water on your legs while learning how to hold your ground and not get swept away.
I came to this work after learning to stand in my own river, a current that carried me through the death of loved ones, divorce, parenting teenagers, self doubt, and eventually the joy of personal growth and change. My own life experiences paired with my professional training and research have led me to this work.
Thank you for starting your journey with me.
