Welcome to Empowered Living Therapy

Starting the Process:

If you’ve reached the point of considering therapy, then you are likely thinking something about your life needs to change. As human beings we experience pain and we frequently become frustrated and overwhelmed with many of life’s challenges.

You now need support and ways of working that will help you achieve the outcomes you want. 

Taking the first step to begin therapy can be difficult but also empowering. Once you contact me, we will arrange the initial evaluation session. We either meet in-person or online so we can get a clear idea of how we work together and if it feels like a good match. If it doesn’t, then I am happy to provide you with referrals that may better meet your needs. If we do decide to move forward, then we will schedule the next session, determine frequency of sessions, and work out payment arrangements.

By now, you have already learned ways to tolerate life’s painful challenges. Why not take the next step from merely surviving to thriving!

The process of effective therapy requires a space of safety and protection.

You typically sit across from a therapist at your most vulnerable opening up about what is truly painful and unbearable. Do you trust this therapist will not judge or condemn you? Will you wonder if they understand your experience and have the ability to help you solve the problems at the center of your pain?

An effective therapist has to successfully create and hold this safe and non-threatening space while exploring along side you without judgment.
