You deserve to be heard, seen, and known.
Life is complex and hard to navigate, but it is especially hard when you have been hurt by someone you trusted. How do you trust someone again? Is healing possible? You may find yourself questioning your own identity. Whether you were hurt by a friend, a family member, significant other, or a co-worker, your pain is valid. It can seem easy to push aside feelings of worthlessness, self-doubt, anger, guilt, and sadness but eventually, those heavy emotions will start to negatively affect how you connect with others around you and how you view yourself.
I love getting to know people’s stories and who they are. We, as humans, are complex and beautiful. I know therapy can seem intimidating and scary because I have been there. I have experienced how powerful it is to share your most precious and intimate thoughts with someone else and not be judged. I know how burdensome feelings of shame, anxiety, loneliness, and anger can feel and I also know how it feels to have those burdens become more manageable or gone! This is why I desire to be a therapist, to see myself and others grow.
Some of the little things I enjoy in life are sipping iced chai lattes and reading a good novel. I am active in my church and love gathering with friends for a game night.
