Whether you need help coping with the stress of the present, anxiety of the future, or healing from the trauma and abuse of the past, I provide a therapeutic space and guidance for you along your journey. I enjoy being a support person for you, while teaching the skills and tools you need to express your grief and pain in a healthy way, as you work through losses in life.
If you’re a caregiver in either your personal life or as a helping professional and it feels like you’re caring for others to the point that it’s causing you pain and suffering, you may need some help with recognizing and managing the symptoms associated with Compassion Fatigue or secondary traumatic stress disorder. When you focus on caring for others without practicing self-care, it’s possible for unhealthy behaviors to start surfacing. As a Certified Compassion Fatigue Therapist, I’d like to work with you to create a plan of health and wellness that leads to healing.
You live your life in relationships. They can hurt us and they can heal us. If you’re in an unhealthy relationship with yourself, someone else, or God that hurts the majority of the time, I’d like to hear about where you are and help point you toward health and wholeness. Unhealthy patterns and unhealed trauma often result in feelings of emptiness, numbness, and a wounding of the soul.
I believe working towards health includes not only the physical but also the emotional, mental, and spiritual well-being of the soul.
“It takes two to tell the truth: One to say it and another to hear it.” –Henry David Thoreau
