Individual Therapy

Out on a limb… and scared to death

The decision to seek individual therapy can be fucking scary!

It can be frightening to allow yourself to be vulnerable enough to ask for help.

You’ve always thought you could handle everything on your own.

And realizing you can’t do that can be fucking hard.

But hold on! (Literally and metaphorically)

That limb is stronger than you think, and you’re a boss. A badass.

Why do I say that?

You’ve made it this far, haven’t you? That’s impressive!

You’ve lived with yourself and made it through every day to this moment – which means you’re a freaking expert on your own life!

And you’re here!

Do you realize how brave you are – just to be reading this?

You are the captain of your ship, and I’m your rudder.

It’s my job to help you navigate!

To help you define and accomplish your goals.

Rough seas and stormy skies – sailing into the wind

Nobody said it was going to be easy.

There are going to be times when I challenge the crap out of you…

When I make you face the stuff you don’t want to.

But don’t worry! I’ll be there!

To cheer you on.

To teach you effective strategies.

To equip you with powerful tools.

To watch you crush whatever you want to crush!

Nothing is too big!

And nothing is too small!

If you just want to come in and complain about your favorite TV show, then let’s do it!

It’s up to you! You’re in control.

Therapy is a safe space for you – a place where you can work through whatever you need to work through.

Sail out of the “zone”

The old adage that growth happens outside of your comfort zone is truly appropriate here.

What you’ve been doing to manage things – isn’t working.

So, we need to push you into waves and currents of discomfort.

But relish the storms – they help you grow.

They’ll allow you to practice new strategies that will help you!

You’ll realize how much discomfort can actually help to build your comfort!

And you’ll see how much brighter things look once you’ve reached the shores of the other side.

Come rain or come shine

Aren’t you ready to take the helm?

Isn’t it time to start sailing in the direction of your dreams?

Reach out to me. Let’s talk (207) 318-3696.

I can’t wait to see where your journey takes you.

I am the master of my fate.
I am the captain of my soul.
