fall in love with your own vision.
You're brave. You're creative. You're smart and inspired, but sometimes your inner critic trips you up. Even when things are going well, you're afraid of relying on anyone to be there when life gets hard and overwhelming. You’re used to being a solo flyer, but hiding yourself behind that wall isn't working for you anymore. Maybe you're feeling blocked creatively or professionally, stuck in your relationships, unsure of where to go next in life, or you've lost sight of the person you want to be. You want to fall in love with your own vision, but you find that you keep getting in your own way.
you want to have a better relationship with your emotions, but aren't sure how.
Learning to navigate difficult emotions comes from learning how to be vulnerable. And maybe you’re thinking, why would I want to be vulnerable? What good would that do? Maybe you're protecting yourself from fears that you won't get what you really need in order to feel safe and loved. I can help you approach the things that seem unapproachable, so you can find relief from the intensity of anger, anxiety, depression, and fear.
You know better than anyone what’s right for you.
You are looking for a therapist who is easy to talk to, educated, and non-judgmental to help you remember that. I can help you understand what's feeding the patterns that make it hard for you to live the life you want. Call me today for a free phone consultation to see whether we'd be a good fit to work together.
None of us can do this alone.
We are all interconnected, and therapy can help you breathe into your most vibrant and aware life, that takes into account all of you and helps you find deep and authentic connections within yourself and your relationships.
"And the speaking will get easier and easier. And you will find you have fallen in love with your own vision, which you may never have realized you had. And you will lose some friends and lovers.... And new ones will find you and cherish you. ... And at last you'll know with surpassing certainty that only one thing is more frightening than speaking your truth. And that is not speaking.” - Audre Lorde
