A BIT ABOUT THERAPY
Are you struggling with issues related to depression, anxiety, an eating disorder, or major life change? There comes a time when help is needed from a certified professional to cope with many of life’s challenges. I understand the importance sport plays in an individual’s life. Athletes devote a tremendous amount of time, energy, and resources into physical training, and I believe we can achieve even more in life when we train emotionally and mentally as well; in order to perform at our best physically, we need to be healthy mentally and emotionally. I believe our body provides us with important information and my style as a therapist often involves the exploration of mental, emotional, and physical reactions to the world and relationships. I often ask clients to practice self-awareness by checking in on their internal thoughts and physical experience. I also believe insight into our past can give us a new understanding of unhelpful behaviors and how they impact our lives. Developing a better understanding of ourselves, and deciding how we want to interact with others and navigate life going forward, becomes the conduit of change. Therapy is not a quick fix; therapy is a healing process that necessitates participation and investment from both of us. In the end, making small changes to self-defeating behavior and coping with emotions can bring life-altering results.
I truly believe there is something for everyone in therapy, and have been witness to the transformation it renders in people’s lives. It provides support in difficult times, helping us to become more resilient in the future. Therapy can offer new perspectives, help us achieve goals and move closer to the person we want to be, and change patterns and cycles that cause us pain, allowing us to begin healing from the past.
I’m here to support you on your journey toward healing and self-discovery. I provide a space that is understanding to the athlete's specific concerns, yet, know my clients are people who often need to talk about many non-sport related stressors in their life. Let's get started today!
