Are you ready for Compassionate, Patient, and Resilient (CPR) counseling? As a practitioner and therapist, I am very aware that it takes a lot for a survivor to pick up the phone to call me. That is the hardest step!
MSW, LCSW, PIP
Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker who specializes in chronic illness, domestic violence/intimate partner violence, women and sexual minorities
You may have just found out that you have been diagnosed with an incurable condition, a chronic disease; you may have enough of being emotionally and physically assaulted by the person you love the most. Perhaps you are going through a life transition that overwhelms you and changes your life trajectory, or you may want to assert the person you identify as, but you do not know how, you feel lost.
My goal is to provide you with the tools to make the best decisions for your life. I would like to shed a light on how our thoughts patterns, our experiences, the labels that we give ourselves can hinder our ability to grow and to be healthier. After all, you are the expert of your life and I will work alongside with you to remind you again that you do matter, you do have the ability to change your life, and you can live your soul’s purpose.
