Sometimes life is just about showing up and trying, often times in the very places where we struggle the most. I also know that in those places of struggle, it can be difficult to have hope that anything will ever be different. That is okay. You don’t have to have hope; I believe that through time and the development of our relationship, we will find what it is that you are looking for.
I understand that anxiety, depression, abuse, losses, broken relationships, a general feeling of loneliness/emptiness (and so on) are each very difficult loads to carry on your own. It is my hope for you as you consider stepping into this new place of therapy, that perhaps that load can be lightened a bit as I join you and help you to carry it.
Some of our work may be about your primary and formative years of childhood; love and how you have or have not been loved by the most influential people in your life (including yourself); how various thoughts/behaviors may be benefiting or hindering your present life or finding your voice and having the ability to use it kindly, lovingly and well for yourself and your most important relationships. My work is to offer you a safe place to speak. Our work together will greatly be enhanced the more that you can bring yourself fully and honestly to me. If you are worrying about something, then lets talk about it so you don’t have to worry anymore.
“Hope begins in the dark, the stubborn hope that if you show up and try to do the right thing, the dawn will come.”
