You were born. Now you’re reading this. In between, life happened. Campfires , anger, heartbreak, lakes, car rides, betrayal, music, name tags, pain, sunsets, resentment, secret handshakes, illness, belly laughs, love, joy, loss, and death. Life is layered, and it comes at us from all angles.
In therapy we explore your inner and outer world collaboratively.
I value the pursuit of your individual truth – which is knowable.
If you are open, motivated, and brave – you will grow.
