A little over 10 years ago, I found myself at an incredibly difficult crossroads. Facing a failed relationship with my immediate familial support system more than 350 miles away, I knew the path back would be challenging. In the aftermath of my break up, I discovered a circle of friends who carried me past the heartache and feelings of sadness.
Break ups can be opportunities for intense and purposeful instrospection. The time I spent reflecting and growing allowed me to recognize what I wanted most out of my life- to serve and help others. I reenrolled in graduate school at The University of St. Thomas and let my heart lead me the rest of the way through my counseling coursework.
In the midst of rebuilding my personal life, I decided to get a tattoo of the silhouette of birds in flight. It served as a daily reminder every day as I got dressed that I was not alone. I had the comfort, love, grace, and support of my flock. Rooted in the adage, “birds of a feather, flock together”, I found strength and solidarity in the people who lifted me up when I needed them the most.
How poignant and fitting that I chose Birds of a Feather Wellness & Counseling as the name of my private counseling practice. It is my privilege and honor to help and serve my clients as they find their way back to themselves through therapy, personal development, community, and wellness.
At the heart of the work I do, I hope to encourage, inspire, and nurture you to spread your wings and soar to your fullest potential in life. Thank you for being a part of this wellness community, birdies! I look forward to sharing wellness content with you on this site.
