Young Adult CounselingLet’s be honest…

Psychotherapy is often stigmatized and, at times, misunderstood. While there is sometimes shame associated with therapy, or it sounds cheesy, that doesn’t mean it isn’t something you might benefit from. As a young adult, therapy is an investment in yourself, not a quick fix to get over something. You get out of it what you put in, and, when you do the work, great things happen and, even better, things can change for you.

Let’s talk about change…

Change can be scary, uncomfortable and a whirlwind. It takes what we know and what we are used to—what we might think of as our normal—and displaces it. We want to feel understood and connected, and change can sometimes disrupt this for us.

Into the unknown…

We can often get caught up helping others, and forget to help ourselves. Self-care isn’t selfish; in fact, it’s quite the opposite. It takes strength to know you need to take care of and love yourself before you can properly take care of others. An essential part of self-care is doing what it takes to be the best version of yourself.

Your biggest commitment…

Loving yourself plays a significant role in not only how you see yourself, but how you view the rest of the world. In being more intentional with your self-care, you have the opportunity to respect and care for your heart, mind, body and soul.

Where there is the potential for brokenness in a given situation, there is also the potential for an abundance of grace. Remember, even in your lowest of lows, there is also light, and some change is bound to come your way.

I am passionate about helping young adult Gen Z and Millennials get through life, because as a millennial myself, I feel connected to both. I love what I do, and I’m intent on spending my life helping my clients work through their sense of brokenness. Personally, I have experienced the benefit of others’ help and want to share that experience.
