I know that you are strong. I can make this assumption without having met you because I know that making the choice to take a journey that involves confronting what scares you most, is one of the hardest decisions anyone can make. Fear is our most powerful emotion; over our history it has been responsible for so much of human behavior, from war and death to how we make meaning of life. It’s no wonder your fear feels so powerful.
I chose the Mountain Laurel as the symbol for my business because it is a sign of strength and perseverance through difficult conditions. Like the Laurel, I look forward to helping you bloom and grow in harmony with your conditions. I do not believe that facing your fears through any therapeutic strategy should cause suffering. It should be empowering. I believe that the work of therapy is the key to knowing yourself in the most intimate ways, and that learning how to detach from fear and strengthen what makes you, you is one of life’s greatest pleasures.
I’ve had the privilege of becoming a specialist in Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), including Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP), and dedicating my career to modifying what can sometimes feel cold, calculated, and impersonal into something shrouded in connection, compassion, and consent.
