My passion is to help people find their path toward a more complete, content, and positive version of their inner lives as well as their connections with others. This desire to grow is built into the human condition. We all must grow from child to adult. And then, as adults, we continue to search for our best selves. As we look for a pathway through the difficult parts, it can be helpful to think of ourselves as the main character, or “hero” of our own life stories.
Desire to grow
Something is pushing you to grow and change.
You challenge yourself to see or do things differently
After much effort, you reach a better way.
Life goes on.
Some new situation, desire, or worry pushes you to climb again.
Keep climbing. And take notes. You’re getting good at this.
Reflect. Connect the Dots
Through writing your story, or talking about it with a therapist, you can learn how one thing led to another, and how the work you do inside yourself affects the places you’ve been and the places you’ll go next.
Stories bring us together
By seeing your life as a solo venture, you are missing out on the opportunit for wisdom. The more you understand your own story, the more you’ll be able to open up and share with others.
I can help
In therapy, I provide support and tools to help you grow through difficulties towards your better self.
In memoir coaching, I show how to use your story to help you grow toward self-understanding.
In classes, I show you how to gather random memories and use writing to help you discover a healing story.
Seeing your life through the lens of story, helps you:
- Feel more confident in your own skin
- Feel courage about next steps
- Feel closure about regrets, abuse
- Increase your dignity and connection with others
- Find insights into multi-generational influences, trauma, etc
