Our lives are made up of personal experiences. Those experiences contribute to our individual story narratives. While some have life stories that seem mostly positive, others are stuck defining themselves through the painful events they’ve experienced in the past. Narrative therapy can help those who’ve developed a negative sense of self to identify their strengths, rewrite their story, and approach life with greater confidence.
When challenging experiences impact our lives they can lead to negative thought and behavior patterns that are sometimes rooted in fear, shame, and feelings of vulnerability. I help clients become aware of how their current challenge is a story among the many stories of their lives. We work to develop strategies that will help clients address their current problems and develop skills that can be used to change patterns that have not been serving them.
