I’ve been there.
Frustrated that I couldn’t “just stop” using drugs and alcohol; feeling helpless to let go of a failed relationship.
But just because a destructive pattern is “all in your head” doesn’t mean sheer willpower will set you free.
What makes quitting something (or someone) so hard is the fear of what life will be like if you actually stop.
It’s not your fault.
There are so many reasons it’s hard to change.
Say it out loud!
It’s hard to change.
I get it – I also know what it takes to make real change.
Commitment and focus, yes, but other things too.
You’ll need unconditional support, a connection with someone who understands you, a change in the way you think about yourself and your life, and something that matters — really matters — to you.
Don’t worry. These are all great things, and you can find them.
But you can’t do it alone.
Whether it’s your first or 500th time trying to break out of a vicious cycle of abusing substances, anger, a toxic relationship, or just plain self-sabotage, I won’t just help you stay away from the bad stuff in our work together in individual therapy.
I’ll help motivate, support, and guide you to create a life you truly want.
As a therapist in recovery myself, I know all the mind games we play in keeping ourselves stuck.
It’s too easy to feel alone and hopeless, and to give up before you really get started.
Together, we’ll navigate all the twists and turns of your process, helping you break down the barriers that have kept you stuck until now.
