Life has many ups and downs, and my passion is helping people get through the tough times. It is important that you feel comfortable working with the therapist you choose. That is why I offer a free initial consultation. Having a comfortable and trusting relationship is one of the most important aspects to therapy as we work together.
You may have noticed the lotus flower as my logo. The lotus flower is a beautiful blossom that comes from a dirty, murky, swamp. Similarly in life we all have challenging times or conditions, yet we all have the potential to blossom into a beautiful person. Counseling can provide you the support you need to help you through the tough times, so that you can experience peace and joy in your life.
Eating disorders often take the place of our own voice, and disguise themselves as our new best friend. Our food and weight obsessed-society support this new best friend and we find it difficult to listen to our true feelings, thoughts, and wisdom about how best to nourish our bodies. It is my hope that your journey to recovery involves you getting back in touch with your true values, hopes, and dreams for your life and helping you live in line with them.
Our values can act like a guiding lighthouse in the sea of life. Your eating disorder has steered you off your course. The lighthouse is still there, you just need help in finding it again.
Our society is obsessed with thinness and diets. If you look at any magazine, internet headline or label on your breakfast cereal, everything is giving us the message that we need to be thin in order to be happy. Losing weight can be so complicated; less calories, low carb, high fiber, low fat (but now high fat is good for you?), more exercise, burning more calories through running, but I should be lifting weights too because that burns more calories in the long run, etc, etc, etc.
Figuring out all of these messages and which ones you should listen to and which ones you should ignore can be so complicated and confusing! It’s enough to make anyone give up and order a triple banana split sundae.
“When health is absent, wisdom cannot reveal itself, art cannot manifest, strength cannot fight, wealth becomes useless, and intelligence cannot be applied.” ~ Herophilus
I believe that the body and mind are one. Having a health concern such as diabetes, heart disease, hypertension, or cancer can affect your psychological, physical, and emotional well being. We will discuss how having a chronic health condition is affecting your life and getting in the way of you living the life you want.
It has been proven time and time again that the most important aspect of therapy is the relationship between the client and therapist. That is why is essential that you feel comfortable with me. We will discuss this during our first session, and I encourage you to bring up any concerns you have about me, and our possible work together.
