People deserve to have a space to just be, whether that is to heal from painful wounds or process their season of life. Therapy is not just for the hurting. It can be for the person trying to establish a new sense of self, someone who is trying to discover their purpose in life, the person learning to develop healthier
habits, or someone who is trying to make the right decision about a situation.
Not only do people deserve to have a space to process, but they deserve to do so in a safe, non-judgmental, or shame inducing environment. Therapy provides a space to explore, wrestle, untangle, and engage with some of our most vulnerable aspects of ourselves and our lives. The challenges and trauma we face may be a part of our story, but it does not have to define who we are. My goal is to help others discover their voice, grow confidence in their identity, and develop a stronger sense of who they are despite adversity.
I grew up in the city of Chicago but lived in Massachusetts for about five years of my adult life. I credit New England winters teaching me how to drive in Chicago snow. In my free time, I enjoy being with friends, hanging out with my Labrador Theo, and working out.
