I imagine you are ready for some relief and a change. You suspect a partner could be helpful even though it feels more natural to do things by yourself. I can understand that mindset. I would consider it a privilege to work with you. I offer a non-judgmental place for you to explore your history, current situation, and goals for the future.
To support you in learning to acknowledge your strengths so that you can rebuild a sense of self-worth and regain focus and energy. My style is direct and encouraging. Working with me is collaborative because I believe that you are the expert of your life. I will ask questions that may spark a new idea for you and offer observations where appropriate. While I don’t always just sit silently and nod my head, I do believe silence and time for reflection is important to the process. You can count on me to hold space for you with care and respect when things become hard or painful.
A Little History
Prior to being a psychotherapist, I spent over 20 years at both for-profit and non-profit organizations within positions of leadership. I intimately understand the pressures of the 24/7 work world and the stress it places on self and relationships. I was passionate about training and development, helping young leaders find their voice, and being a mentor. I changed careers at mid-life which was challenging and 100% worth it.
My practice is a LGBTQ safe space and I welcome all that have experienced, explicitly or implicitly, being othered by mainstream society. It can be a traumatic experience leaving psychological scars and incredible strength.
