Because I was
You know you are a plant growing in the wrong soil…
A misunderstood plant… you stand out among the rest…
You wish you were anything else…
You try to blend, but you can’t…
You’re the one that doesn’t fit the terrain…
And… well the isolation hurts.
“Why am I like this?” Not enough… too much…! You’ve always felt misunderstood by the people closest to you, and here you are AGAIN attempting to find a therapist that gets you. The more you’re misunderstood by others, the more you lose touch with yourself. A new medication, googling life’s problems, scrolling your fyp for answers to why life seems to hate you. Your relationships are shallow and dissatisfying… more like… nonexistent. It’s hard to connect when you are deep and different. Life is fucking lonely. You’re ready to start liking yourself. Fear won’t hold you back from working through the hard shit anymore!
I want you to know that your idea of your ideal life is what matters to me most. I value authenticity, transparency, and humanness in my office, because your “weird” isn’t really that weird at all! I specialize in working with misunderstood rebels and rule benders who want to be SEEN for who they really are rather than what others want them to be.
If you’re someone who feels misunderstood and stuck in a box of labels and unwanted identities… then working with me will….
-push you to break free
-encourage you to revel in your rebellion
-help you to redefine what it means to be different

As a misfit who has spent a lot of my life lost and misunderstood, I know how exhausting it is to have to hide parts of yourself because those parts aren’t wanted. It’s so damn hard to trust anyone anymore, but if you are on my page, then you haven’t given up yet. I applaud you for that! Send me a message today for a free consult. I can’t wait to connect!
