Today you are one step closer to a new you where you feel empowered and on a positive path to growth and well-being.
As a Christian therapist, my goal is to help you uncover your true potential and lead a life that is worth celebrating. Perhaps you are looking to create new meaning and purpose in your life. Maybe you want to develop deeper, more intimate relationships, or, expand the awareness of your needs and the needs of those in your inner circle of family and friends. Whatever your reasons are for seeking therapy at this time in your life, I am here to walk this journey with you.
My role as your psychotherapist is to create an environment in which your therapy experience not only feels safe, but is experienced as being both positive and life giving. While we can't change difficult situations of the past, we can work together to better understand and resolve challenges in your life. By applying complementary therapy approaches and techniques, we will unearth long-standing behavior patterns or negative perceptions that may be holding you back from experiencing a more fulfilling and meaningful life.
If you're looking for extra support and guidance through a challenging situation or you're just ready to move in a new direction in your life, I look forward to working with you to achieve your goals.
"Over the years, I have come to realize that the greatest trap in our life is not success, popularity, or power, but self-rejection. Success, popularity, and power can indeed present a great temptation, but their seductive quality often comes from the way they are part of the much larger temptation to self-rejection. When we have come to believe in the voices that call us worthless and unlovable, then success, popularity, and power are easily perceived as attractive solutions. The real trap, however, is self-rejection. As soon as someone accuses me or criticizes me, as soon as I am rejected, left alone, or abandoned, I find myself thinking, "Well, that proves once again that I am a nobody." ... [My dark side says,] I am no good... I deserve to be pushed aside, forgotten, rejected, and abandoned. Self-rejection is the greatest enemy of the spiritual life because it contradicts the sacred voice that calls us the "Beloved." Being the Beloved constitutes the core truth of our existence." — Henri J. M. Nouwen
As a Christian therapist, I believe that God has a plan for each and every one of us; that God desires the best for us:
“For I know the plans I have for you” declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope
and a future." (Jeremiah 29: 11-12).
