APPROACH & MORE ABOUT ME
Do you feel unfulfilled? You may have a great partner, children, a satisfying career, but there is a place that fills empty. Do you experience the nagging feeling that something inside you is lost or missing? On paper you look great, but inside you are fighting to hold it all together. You are grateful for all the good things in your life, yet there is an inexplicable hollowness that echoes in you. You may even feel guilty for feeling empty when life looks full.
I work with high-achievers who are desperately seeking to live a divinely-inspired intentional life. Where purpose reigns supreme and regrets are not allowed. If you are searching for a counselor to walk with you down this crazy road called life and you have the courage to unabashedly look at yourself and fight for your dreams, I will be a good fit for you. I like a client who wants to do the work to figure out where that emptiness comes from and works fiercely to fill it the void. I don’t fix people; they fix themselves through openness, willingness, and vulnerability. If you can’t be honest, please don’t come in to see me.
My work is a little going back, a lot on the present and a focus on the future. I ask questions and give feedback. I am not a nodding head with long annoying blocks of silence. Grief and Loss, depression and traumatic life experiences are my specialties. I have 20 years of experience and I work with teens, adults, and couples.
