Associate Social Worker -
This life we live on Earth isn’t easy. People can be mean to us. They might have harmed us physically or psychologically. It’s sometimes hard for friends and family members to understand what we’re going through. You might feel unheard — or worse — judged.Maybe it’s time to talk with a therapist.
I’m currently licensed to see clients in Washington state. But four years ago, I was in St. Louis attending grad school and offering therapy to a wide variety of clients: adolescents with depression, LGBTQ+ teens and twentysomethings trying to figure out how to find love and love themselves, as well as women who had recently gotten out of prison.
I’ve heard just about everything. There’s no reason to feel ashamed to share what you need to share. I think you’ll find that I try to come to each session with a nonjudgmental spirit, honestly wanting to make a connection with you and see what we can learn from each other. In my view, therapy isn’t about getting advice. It’s sharing your story. It’s hearing a new perspective. It’s working hard in the session and during the rest of the week on what you need to heal. It’s also learning to be more mindful about how we travel through the world.
When I talk about being more “mindful,” it can include meditation — but meditation is just one tool that helps people adopt a more mindful mindset. We can talk more about this, if you’d like.
Just so you know, I am currently only offering therapy via telehealth (Zoom). However, the benefit of telehealth is that I get to help clients all across Washington state.
Contact me today and let’s begin the process of seeing if we’re a good fit for each other.
