Navigating Therapy: Finding Support on Your Terms

I work with clients a little differently. As a survivor of complex childhood trauma, I personally know what it’s like to start counseling or to start counseling with a new therapist and have the dread of sharing the story of our trauma. It can be triggering just to think about it! And I have definitely put off finding a new counselor because of this. If you’re overwhelmed by the idea of therapy, I hear you and I understand that feeling.

Or maybe you have lived your life keeping your secrets locked away and built walls to protect that secret. But now you’re finding life is stressful and you could use support to survive the crisis.

Wherever you are on your journey towards better mental health, know that I will support you. If you want to keep those secrets locked away, that’s okay. If you don’t remember your trauma or you don’t want to talk about it, that’s okay. In my practice, we start wherever you are and support you in managing your current stress.

Clarifying Boundaries: Rest assured, your confidentiality and boundaries are paramount in my practice. Your secrets will be respected and kept confidential at all times.

Highlighting Strengths: I want to acknowledge your resilience and strength in seeking support. It takes courage to navigate difficult experiences, and I’m here to support you every step of the way.

Offering Hope: Many clients have benefited from our approach, experiencing progress and improvements in managing stress and coping with trauma. Your journey toward healing is possible, and I’m committed to walking alongside you.

Encouraging Self-Compassion: Remember, it’s okay to take things at your own pace. Self-compassion is essential in the healing process, and I encourage you to be patient and gentle with yourself as you navigate therapy.

If any of this resonates with you, please reach out. Let me know your concerns and how I can support you. Together, we can create a safe space where your mental health goals can be realized. Although I’m based in British Columbia, Canada, I’m here to support individuals worldwide on their journey to better mental health. Distance is no barrier to receiving the support and guidance you deserve.
