“When people don’t have any curiosity about themselves, that is always a bad sign.” Irvin Yalom Hello! You reading this seems to be a good sign; it tells me you have an interest in examining your life, as something probably isn’t working the way you’d like it to! I use a humanistic therapy approach, specifically existentialism, reality therapy, and attachment theory – although these might not mean anything to you now, they will – as I enjoy sharing everything I know with the hope it will help create additional meaning in your life.
If you decide to take this journey with me, you and I will start by peeling back layers upon layers in pursuit of truth, no matter how painful, as truth and taking responsibility are keys to living a meaningful and purposeful existence.
One of my favorite quotes is, “Living safely is dangerous,” – Irvin Yalom; so if you’re ready to dive in to the nitty-gritty / the good, bad, and ugly of your existence, I look forward to venturing into the chaos and messiness of life with you!
