You aren’t living. You are surviving. Nothing brings you joy anymore. You feel drained and even small tasks feel too hard. You’re tired of hearing others’ solutions; go for a walk, get more sleep, work out, and eat healthier. You feel misunderstood so instead you say “I’m fine.” It’s not a lie. You do feel FINE…F*cked up. Insecure. Neurotic. Emotional. Some days you feel “meh.” Other days the emptiness, the hollowness, is so unbearable thoughts of unaliving yourself seem to be the only option. You want to feel relief. You miss your old self and want to feel better about yourself. You remember what it was like to have an appetite and feel rested. You can feel that spark again. Bottom line you can feel again. I am passionate about helping those struggling with depression, anxiety, self-injury, trauma and specialize in helping those affected by suicide to include individuals experiencing suicidal ideation, individuals affected by a loved one’s suicide attempt or death by suicide, and individuals transitioning from a higher level of care (hospitalization) after a recent suicide attempt. As a therapist, I believe the world is full of experiences, positive and negative, which influence who we are. I align strongly with the humanistic perspective of counseling and believe you, the client, to be the expert on your own experience. Therefore, I act as a guide striving to provide a warm and nonjudgmental space to explore experiences deeper and foster growth. At the core of therapy is the therapeutic alliance/relationship. You can expect me to be honest, empathetic, understanding, and human just like you!
