Is it possible to not only “get through” the tough times in life, but grow from them?
Yes. Post Traumatic Growth is real.

Can’t we just skip over the hard part
and get to the good stuff in life?
Not really. We see evidence all around us of the discomfort that’s a normal part of growth.

Couldn’t we simply hide out from life’s tough times,
and keep growing anyway?
Not for very long. Eventually, growth will find us and nudge (or push) us along our path.

                        Then… why bother?

That’s part of why people like me -- therapists, counselors, and others who have chosen helping professions -- do what we do: We believe there are good reasons you should bother with the process of life growth. In some cases, our belief is based on personal experience as well as professional training.

As a collaborative, trauma-informed, solution-focused, strengths-based therapist, my job is to:

  • help you find your own reasons for sticking around and your own fuel to keep growing
  • provide a space and time in your calendar where you can feel truly heard and emotionally supported
  • be a sounding board for your grievances, your explorations and wonderings, and your celebrations
  • turn your attention to those times and ways in which growth is nudging (or pushing) you along your path
