Words are, in my not-so-humble opinion, our most inexhaustible source of magic. Capable of both inflicting injury, and remedying it.

I think it's important to recognize how difficult it is to reach out for help, and I'm so grateful that you've chosen to reach out to me. I'm not gonna sugar-coat it, sometimes therapy can be tough. And while there are 168 hours in a week, sadly, you only get to spend one of those with your therapist! While I wish I could be there every hour for all my clients, that just wouldn't be realistic.
So, when I say therapy is tough, what we really mean is, it's tough because being vulnerable is tough (shocker, right?). But I believe that introspection, meaning-making, awareness, and acceptance of one’s thoughts and feelings are crucial to the healthy functioning of the individual. Whether you're looking for therapy for your child, yourself, or couples counselling, I feel that connection with your therapist is crucial. With the right relationship, everyone has a tremendous capacity to grow and gain insight into their lives, struggles, and experiences.
