What is Your True Story?
Is the story inside of you making you feel anxious or depressed?
Do you have a safe space to share it?
Telling our truth can be a helpful tool in healing trauma.
Sometimes our thoughts are stories told to us, that may not be true.
Other times, our life experiences hold competing truths…
For example, as an adopted person you may feel a sense of love for your adoptive family, but also experience feelings of deep pain, loss, and identity confusion when thinking of your first family.
As a caregiver, you may feel both a sense of joy when you share cherished moments with your loved one alongside feelings of anger and sadness for the loss of the life that you had imagined.
As a grieving person, you may feel despair over the loss of your family member but also have strong feelings of relief that you no longer have to watch them suffer.
Do you see some of yourself in these stories?
Who can you curiously explore your truths with, in all of their complexity?
Counseling allows me to hold space for your life story - that's still being written!
I am passionate about helping adopted adults, survivors of trauma, older adults and people that are grieving. I enjoy working with individuals, complex families, and/or adult members of the adoption constellation.
I strive to create a space that is warm, inclusive and judgement free...
with humor encouraged!
I invite you to reach out for a free consultation to see if we might work well together!
