We are our most peaceful selves when we are confident in who we are.
Our spirituality allows us to find identity in a higher power, but what happens when the hurt that we've experienced in a faith community causes us to lose so many parts of ourselves that our identity is lost?
Here's one way to experience restoration:

Being human means that we will have hard moments. Strength is acknowledging your humanity.

Relationships aren't meant to be perfect, nor are they meant to be distressing.
Childhood experiences, uninvited changes, and significant loss can wear on a person's sense of self. I would like to work with you to discover or regain your core-identity. With my specialized training in conflict resolution, I look forward to working with you to create effective ways to heal conflict that you may be feeling internally or may be presented with externally.
My style of therapy is collaborative, and my approach includes integrating cognitive-behavioral, solution-focused, and restoration therapies. My areas of special clinical interest include premarital counseling, relationship conflict management, core-identity alignment, cultural identity, anxiety, and depression.
Therapy will not always be pleasant, so I admire the courage it takes to confront distressing issues and do the work it takes to heal from them. If you give yourself permission to have those tough sessions, I will provide for you a safe and non-judgmental space to process through challenges, create change, and obtain the peace that you seek.
Until then be well,
