Great to meet you!
"We all live with pain. We lose. We hurt. We grieve. We suffer. I am just like you. I have not lived this life unscathed." - Toni Teixeira, LCSW
On my journey, I have realized there are so many things we can't control. But, worry and endless rumination can add even more suffering to already painful situations. I've learned that it is possible to live in alignment with our values and move towards our goals even though life can be scary sometimes.
A bit about my approach to therapy
I believe in treating the whole person, mind, body and spirit. I value and honor the unique needs of each client and want them to know they are seen, valued and heard. The road to healing starts inside of you, so it is important that you are an active part of your healing process. Our work is about you and tailored for your needs and we may draw on techniques from CBT, ACT or Somatic type of therapies.
What you can expect from our first session
You will come away from our sessions feeling like you were safely able to explore lots of different areas of your life, thoughts and feelings. You will gain clarity on what matters most to you and learn new strategies that you can use on your own so that you can get back to feeling like yourself again and connect with others. I am dedicated to teaching people how to create a meaningful and fulfilling life.
