“The limit of your ability to love others is set by the limit of your ability to love yourself and vice versa. So, if you are struggling to grow in one, focus on the other and watch as both grow together.”

“I believe that telling our stories, first to ourselves and then to one another and the world, is a revolutionary act. It is an act that can be met with hostility, exclusion, and violence. It can also lead to love, understanding, transcendence, and community. I hope that my being real with you will help empower you to step into who you are and encourage you to share yourself with those around you.” —Janet Mock, writer, TV host, and transgender activist

Just follow your joy. Always. I think that if you do that, life will take you on the course that it’s meant to take you.” --Jonathan Groff

Navigating inner turmoil

It’s on the tip of your tongue but you don’t dare to speak up.  So, you just agree and hide your true thoughts and feelings.  You’d rather be a peacekeeper but the harder you try the more you feel unrest.  Do other people struggle with this?  Am I alone? What would it look like for me to feel inner confidence in who I am and seek joy for myself?  

Vulnerability is worth it

Having a safe place to talk about the most vulnerable parts of your life can be a life-changing and powerful experience. I would love to take the time to get to know you and walk alongside you as we figure out what it looks like for you to find healing and contentment.  There is a sigh of relief possible when you bring your whole self into the world and work on eliminating shame.

More than a temporary fix

I find that many people’s behaviors, either relationally or personally, are motivated by unmet areas of need in their life. Counseling can help you understand your own needs and motivations and find ways to fulfill those needs in a healthy way.  Avoidance and restricting unhealthy behaviors is only a temporary fix.

A solid self cultivates healthy relationships

Everybody deals with relational challenges, whether it’s communication struggles with a loved one, wounds you experienced years ago or coming out to a family member. Some of these conversations can be especially challenging for people of faith or creed who feel like they are in conflict with their beliefs. Through counseling, you can figure out how to navigate challenging relationships and deal with the relational pain you’ve experienced throughout life.
