“All that you touch, you change. All that you change changes you. The only lasting truth is change. God is Change.” –Octavia Butler, “Parable of the Sower” Change, while inevitable, can be unsettling and scary. Often, when you’re in the midst of it, it's hard to have tolerance for transformation. Therapy with me can help you develop patience and a sense of your own inner direction as you make your way through the fog of what’s left behind to the place you wish to be. I offer consistency, compassion, and connection to remind you that you don’t have to go through this alone.
Some transitions that I work with include “empty nest,” when children leave the home and parents are struggling to find an identity that isn’t totally dependent on the child. I can help you explore parts of yourself that may not have had a chance to be contacted. If you are a young person who is leaving home, you are going through major changes to your identity. You're probably both thrilled and terrified to become autonomous, but still want to be connected to home in ways of your choosing. I especially enjoy working with people in the 18-25 range, as well as adults going through the transition from late-20s to their early 30s. So much happens in this time period, it’s a rich and profound experience to be able to help someone become who they really, truly are.
I also have a deep respect for the mourning and bereavement process, and work with people who are managing the loss of a loved one, and finding themselves renegotiating who they are in relation to a world that their loved one is no longer living in. If you are experiencing this kind of loss, including loss of a loved one to suicide, please contact me today to find out how I can help.
