Do you feel overwhelmed? Stuck? Are you struggling with unresolved past pain? Change is possible. I can help. You can overcome traumatic experiences that have wounded you and make the changes you want. I can help you express your feelings and thoughts so you develop greater awareness of your self, choices you make, patterns holdings you back, and strengths you are not fully accessing.
Research shows that the quality of the therapeutic relationship is an important component of successful therapy, along with the training and experience of the therapist.
Talking to someone you do not know can be difficult. Especially when you have experienced early or repeated trauma, have trouble feeling safe or knowing how or whom to trust. You have the right to seek a therapist who is a good fit and trauma-informed.
In addition, if you have felt stigmatized as a result of factors such as sexual orientation or gender identity you may fear having to spend valuable time educating a therapist about your orientation or identity, or talking about your sexuality/gender because your therapist considers it to be a "problem." You have a right to a therapist that is affirming and educated about the LGBT communities.
If you are struggling, help is available. Contact me to determine if I can be of help in this process.
