Hi! You've been looking for someone to really understand and listen to what your going through. I can offer you that, and more.
Mental Health Counselor in Everywhere, MO
Supervised by Marie Bonner-Horon, LPC
I use person-centered approaches as a foundational way to meet all my people where they are at. I believe that through building a strong therapeutic relationship, change will occur as the primary need to change is that unconditional support. Through that positive regard toward each of my people and their lives along with the skills built during time in therapy, achieving insights and finding strength to change moves a few steps closer.
You've been beating yourself up on a daily basis over this and that. The voices in your head have been telling you you're not good enough, you eat too much, your annoying, your lazy; and you're feeling like a piece of crap. That shame and lack of confidence is heavy, but you don't have to do it alone. I know what it means to feel the weight of those shackles of shame, but I also know some ways to pick those locks. Let me show you. Feel the freedom.
You woke up one day and realized you weren't where you wanted to be, and you weren't who you wanted to be. You've been reflecting and recognized areas of your life that you wish were different, but making those changes has been so hard. Maybe you've been feeling stuck in the past, trapped at your workplace, or just unhappy with how things are in your life. I understand what it means to look at yourself and know that it's time. I can help you take that step and find the strength to grow.
As a member of the LGBGTQ+ community, I have an intimate understanding of the issues we are often forced to confront when it comes to things like sexual and gender exploration, expressing yourself, accepting yourself and healing from the shame, and many others. As an ally to my community, I make it a priority to keep up on what's going on and understanding the ongoing needs of the people I stand in solidarity with.
