I have had the privilege in the last 10+ years of working with people of all ages suffering from some kind of trauma, whether it be physical or psychological. I have been in the trenches with my clients who I have gone to see at hospitals or outpatient clinics in the midst of their treatments. I have worked with people who were dying, and have consoled family members after they have passed. I have also held space and joined clients who were processing severe PTSD from a range of different psychological traumas. I am continuously inspired by my clients’ courage to engage in the healing process and share their stories with me.
I work with people on a wide range of issues. The following are a few of my specialties (this list is not all-inclusive):
If I have never been to therapy before, what should I expect? How do I know if I should go, and how do I start?
Always trust your inner knowing. The time to see a therapist or coach is the time when you'd like an objective, supportive sounding board to help you explore your inner experience and to grow from the challenges you have experienced in the past and are currently experiencing in your life.
In therapy, expect to have the full attention of your therapist and to be seen and heard for who you really are. For some people, this will be the first time they have ever felt truly seen and heard.
The first step is to reach out. Most often, someone has a pretty good idea if they connect with someone in the first minutes of speaking to them. It’s always a bonus to speak to a potential therapist over the phone first to get a sense of who they are before you book a session with them.
