To New Beginnings!

Hello Friends!

This is my first post as a private practitioner, and I'm really excited. Until a week ago, I was working as part of a trauma team in a large organization. That was my job for 10 years. It was great job, and I believe that I was able to help a lot of people. But as with most things, everything comes to an end. I had been thinking about making a change for a long time. I have changed, my family has changed, and I needed something that could change and grow with me.

So, here I am, in private practice. I did a lot of homework beforehand, which entailed meetings and planning sessions with trusted friends, who already knew the ropes. It's been a dizzying process of choosing names, plotting websites and marketing, and getting my proverbial ducks in a row... All so I can sit down with you, and offer you therapy. So far, so good. And thanks to all of the amazing people who have offered their time to help me to get up to speed.

I'd like to think I'm better at change than most people. There is a concept in mindfulness called "groundlessness." It basically means the feeling that you're falling, butt-over-teakettle, and that you can't quite find your footing. Starting a practice feels that way. I'm using my mindfulness skills and experience to help me to navigate in this new world. And at the end of the day, the only thing that really matters is the work that we do in the session.

I'm looking forward to all of those new sessions, and helping more people to manage their own experiences with groundlessness.
