Do I have to go to therapy?
I think therapy is cool. Honestly. Putting effort into your mental and emotional health is just as important as going to the gym. Therapy is like the gym for your mind and heart. Everyone has had issues with how they think and feel. So why not get some help from someone whose only interest is helping you get to where you want to be? Sure you can talk to your friends and vent but having a professional on your side who has the skills and knowledge you need to heal and achieve your goals is pretty freakin’ cool. If it makes you feel better let’s not call it therapy, let’s call it mental and emotional fitness training so you can have the kickass life you want.
So let me explain..
When you’re ready to confront what it is that’s concerning you, it helps to have a neutral and skilled observer with a fresh perspective. Each person has their own unique experiences, which should serve as a blueprint to inform their life rather than limit. Fear, grief, loss, depression, relationship issues — these are all part of life. There’s no shame in experiencing them. Through identifying traumatic life events and exploring them through the use of various therapeutic interventions, each client uncovers their true nature by aligning their thoughts, feelings and behaviors. I help people convert limitations into growth and self-mastery.
When a fear is understood it can be converted to a goal and becomes strength.
Fear is a threat of future loss. It provides information as to where past hurts and wounds are located. When a fear is named it begins to lose its power. Together we work through your fears and identify irrational thoughts, which may be perpetuating the fear. When a fear is understood it can be converted to a goal and becomes strength.
Grief or depression can be triggered by any loss, such as a loved one passing, divorce, breakups, job loss, health issues, moving, and a myriad of other life transitions. Sometimes pain can be so overwhelming that a person seeks comfort in alcohol, drugs, sex, gambling, or food. I get it. There are alternatives to self-harm and we will figure out what works best for you, together.
Divorce and break-ups can be challenging. They often leave more questions than answers, not only about what happened, but who you’ve become as a result. Positive or negative, the transformation can be far removed from who you were. This is a massive opportunity for personal development. Together we will uncover the gift of self-knowledge contained in the end of a relationship with another and bring you back into a conscious relationship with yourself.
Regardless of your reason to pursue therapy, my goal is to help you navigate the road between where you are now and where you want to arrive.
