Kristina Murin, LSW
Connecting with others has become more and more difficult lately. Loneliness and exhaustion are the two worst feelings but also the most prominent. Sometimes it feels like you are living someone else's life or you feel like an outsider to your own. It seems like everyone has it all figured out but you're left confused and misunderstood.
No one has experienced all that you have in your life and your story is yours alone... however, and I cannot stress this enough, sharing that story, YOUR story, can be an intense and transformative experience. Choosing the right person that will honor your story is the first and most critical step in your therapy endeavor. Above all else, you want someone you can connect with who can guide you through the process with respect, honesty, and compassion. Finding that person, one that has been through it, can help you make sense of your life, relationships, and emotions while offering you the understanding and compassion you truly deserve.
I help individuals of all ages understand how their behaviors and experiences affect the course of their lives. Finding origins in the past and implementing changes for the present and future can improve your life in ways you might never have thought possible. From day one, we will work as a team and collaborate along the way to ensure that we are getting what we expect of each other. I will walk alongside you through your journey of self-exploration. It won't be easy, but it will be worth it... because you are worth it.
Together, we will figure this out and find what works best for you. It won't always be rainbows and butterflies because let's face it, life isn't that simple. We all have pain but we will get through yours together.
While working with me in therapy, I'm sure you'll find that I'm full of surprises. I will apply my knowledge and education to find creative ways to keep you on your toes and challenge you. We will undoubtedly laugh and might even shed a tear or two but rest assured, the space I create for you will be one of safety, security, and honest expression of emotion. All you have to do is show up, be present, and openly communicate with me.
If you're ready and willing to take a long hard look at yourself and your life, I'm in it for the long haul. Let's do this…together. Contact me for a FREE consultation.
