About therapy

What to expect with Therapy

Therapy is for anybody & everyone! Too many of us believe that it’s weak to show vulnerability or to ask for help when it actually takes an enormous amount of strength to do so.

We’re all going to go through troubled times, finding ourselves in situations we aren’t sure how to navigate on our own and therapy can help.

If you’re doing well, and want to move forward in your personal growth, therapy helps with this too.

Therapy gives a person an opportunity to heal, process and move forward in ways they weren’t able to imagine on their own. It is known fact that with accountability, community, and sense of support, we can achieve remarkable things in our lives.

Wide Range of Services
Wide Range of Services

Whether you're struggling with unresolved issues from your past, trying to deal with current difficult life issues or struggling with fitting into society’s ever increasing expectations therapy can help to cope with anxiety, depression, or other mental health conditions. A Better Path Therapy offers individualized services and works with people on a wide range of topics



There are many kinds of abuse but most commonly I see abuse stemming from family issues which occurred while we were growing up. These issues can turn into certain patterns or behaviors that we then carry with us through our adulthood.

Sometimes we continue the pattern because we believe this is normal behavior. You could also experience anxiety, depression, anger issues, or other things. What is important is to know you’re not alone, becoming self-aware of what behaviors are trauma induced and help rewire your brain to change those patterns and behaviors.


When it comes to aging there can be several different challenges one might encounter. Biological changes, career changes, hormone changes, there are countless issues you can find yourself struggling with entering or late life transitions.

Yes! It is possible to find making peace with the idea of aging so that you can not only continue to have a functional life but also enjoy it.


Anxiety is usually based on fear of our surroundings which we don’t know or understand. This is caused by the unknown and uncertainty. Most often in our lives, the idea of not being in control of something or unsure of an outcome can lead to symptoms of anxiety

Daily life can feel stressful! Our brains are always creating a bigger story and likes to go to the worst-case scenario. Therapy can help you control those ways of thinking and help you to start thinking more rationally.

Body Image Issues

Moving towards healthier self-beliefs regarding eating and body-image can become almost like a meditative path. Those who struggle with these issues battle media and societal expectations while yearning to feel comfortable

accepting themselves as is. Not only do I have knowledge and expertise but have sought out many resources along my own path.

Chronic Pain or Illness

Doing a doggy paddle in circles, is exactly how I like to describe what it feels like living with chronic pain/illness. Every day you wake up and you do the best you can, while trying to learn how to allow yourself to celebrate the little things.

We need people in our corner to help remind us of all the little wins because societal pressures can feel like a lot, and we become too hard on ourselves. All you can do is all you can do and that is enough, be okay with that. That is being successful.


I have personally traveled all the way down this rabbit hole and made my way back out of it to tell you the tale. I have a gift for educating and helping people with all levels of depression. Providing knowledge about the disease helps ease

some of the pain of the struggles living with depression.

Kink/Sexual outsiders: Polyamorous and Open Relationships

I am very well read and knowledgeable on this topic. You can feel safe in this judgement free zone. Trust me, it would be very hard to shock me!

I fully believe that the way that you decide to live your life should not be a determining factor in whether you should be able to receive appropriate mental health care. Therapy can help you navigate the feelings you feel inside, deal with the world, and even find maybe some unanswered questions on why. Whatever you’re dealing with you are supported 100%.

LGBT+ Issues

We are who we are innately, and it is okay to embrace those parts of yourself. Building more awareness on what speaks to you as a person or navigating that you might be one thing but maybe are another through questioning.

People know they don’t fit in with the norm, but sometimes are not sure where they fit. This is one of the things I help people explore coming to terms with their sexual identity and start to embrace it.

Personal Growth

If you are finding yourself on the beautiful journey of personal growth it’s important to surround yourself with people that will foster and nurture your self-awareness and help you set obtainable goals,


We grow self-esteem by making promises to ourselves and keeping those promises. However, naturally as humans we tend to be so hard on ourselves. Therapy helps you see your wins also how you are making progress in your life. This not only grows your self-esteem

but It also helps you find self-acceptance.

Women’s Issues

We ladies deal with a lot of crap from glass ceilings. We often take on more responsibilities in our family without asking for help or asking for equity in our shared duties. These can lead to a lot of emotions like anger, resentment, exhaustion, countless other feelings.

Therapy helps you not only internalize and rationalize those feelings but helps you learn to communicate and establish healthy boundaries so you can start lifting some of the weight off your shoulders.
