You have stories and are walking on life's journey. Your story often carry pain, grief, hardships. As a result you become impacted personally, relationally, emotionally, and physically. Some things you may be experiencing are anxiety, fear, anger, difficulty in sustaining healthy relationships, self doubt, low self esteem, feeling like you are not enough. Often these are connected to the stories and patterns that we repeat from the past into the present, making it difficult to navigate the present and the future. Shame and isolation are often accompanied with what you experience and results in not being processed. When it is not processed it becomes a personalized wound of definition instead of a scar of experience, resulting how it affects how you view yourself and the world around you. Your coping skills become affected as shame has been unprocessed, which then keeps you from living a life of purpose, authenticity, and possibilities. Your unprocessed trauma and negative relational patterns becomes the norm which at times include self sabotoge or the sabotage of others, and the patterns are often repeated.  The journey in counseling opens the door to include both the positive things of life while simultaneously existing with the sorrow of the past. As your therapist I will work with you to begin to journey into authenticity towards self and others. It will take strength and courage to allow grief and feel the sorrow of the past, yet feel and acknowledge the positiveness in life.
