“When people are ready to, they change. They never do it before then, and sometimes they die before they get around to it. You can't make them change if they don't want to, just like when they do want to, you can't stop them.”
You hide it very well.
You dress the part.
Your success distracts you from feeling so alone.
People seem to like you, but they don't really understand.
Often it feels easier to pretend that you're OK, but deep down... you hope for something more.
Throughout my life, I have always been driven by the impulse to 'figure things out.'
I began my career as a teacher. I loved the challenge of figuring out how to present challenging concepts to my students in a way that made sense to them. After seven years of teaching, I came to see that the single most important factor in anyone's life was the parent/child relationship. I left teaching to begin a private practice as a child development specialist, helping parents understand child development and avoid power struggles.
In 2011, I returned to graduate school to become a psychotherapist.
I have since fallen in love with psychotherapy. It is the ultimate vehicle for figuring things out. I am forever fascinated by us human beings, how we make sense of the world and our place in it. I am honored to be able to do this work, helping others figure things out for themselves.
