Life can be immensely challenging, and asking for help can be a battle in and of itself. Reaching out is a profoundly courageous act and I commend you for it.
Hurt afflicts us all, and many of us build barriers to protect ourselves against it. There may come a time, however, when these barriers are so robust that we become isolated even from the beautiful things. Numbness, anger, anxiety, and depression are ways that our bodies communicate with us, carrying the message that it is time to speak to the parts of ourselves we locked away.
At its most basic, therapy is a conversation. You tell me the truth, and I listen. Together then, we co-create and travel a path towards wellness; whatever that looks like for you.
I am a Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology practicum student at Yorkville
University. I have a military background, and feel deeply connected to issues of identity, belonging, and meaning-making. It would be my honour and privilege to serve alongside you in your life’s campaign.
