Welcome to My Website
I know there are a lot of therapists to choose from in the Asheville area and appreciate your taking the time to see if I might be a good fit. You can learn about my approach to counseling by heading over to the SERVICES tab. The ABOUT ME page is where I share some details on my background, education, and training.
For now I just want you to consider the following idea: You don’t need to be fixed. You just need to be found. We live in a society that’s hyper-focused on productivity and problem-solving. Indeed, we are problem-solving creatures by nature, and that’s why we’ve maintained our place at the top of the food chain for so long. But going into fix-it mode usually isn’t helpful when it comes to psychological and emotional suffering. Find-it mode, however, which involves exploring ones internal landscape with compassionate curiosity and the intention of discovering the origins and functions of certain thoughts, feelings, and behaviors, is often the key to true healing and growth.
That’s why I say that you don’t need to be fixed; you just need to be found. Or to quote British philosopher Alan Watts, “You see, the reason why you want to be better is the reason why you are not — it is because you want to be, and do not realize that you already are.”
