I believe everyone has a voice that is worthy of being heard and everyone is worthy of feeling seen. But it is not uncommon to believe that our voice does not matter and that our words are insignificant. We may feel ignored, neglected, unsupported, and invalidated. When this happens, we may turn inward and make ourselves, and our needs, very small.
We may lash out and get loud so that others will hear us. Or we may turn to alcohol, drugs, food, relationships – anything to fill this void we feel inside. We have these unmet needs at our core, and we are not always sure how to meet them in healthy ways. My goal is to help you identify what is missing, help empower you to find and use your voice, assist you with connection to yourself and with others, and find healthier ways to cope when life becomes messy and overwhelming.
