Why I became a therapist
Our identities have been sculpted and influenced by what societal narratives say our lives are "supposed to be". I believe that human struggle and periods of transition are a natural part of life that can oftentimes make us feel as if we are living a life that is out of our control. Through self-exploration, strength identification, coaching, and supportive guidance, therapy can help to transform difficult experiences into rich opportunities for growth, healing, and change.
