Joy Myers MA, LPC - Licensed Psychotherapist
We must re-teach all things their loveliness. St. Francis of Assisi
My first career was nursing. The capacity of the body to heal itself astounded me. Now as a seasoned counselor, seeing the way the mind, body and spirit work together on behalf of the whole person opens possibilities and hope for healing brokenness that occurs in our mental, emotional, spiritual lives and relationships as well.
I decided to spend my professional life doing psychotherapy because the most gratifying part of nursing was the relationships with patients and the impact that relationships could make for them in the healing process.
I believe that relationship is the basic human need. We were created in love and for love. But truly, life is hard, and it is inevitable that at sometime in our lives there will be pain or challenges that come from our own imperfections, or those of others. Often those struggles can be better served in the context of a safe, helping relationship, than in isolation. When life is hard, it is important not to waste the pain, but allow it to be the raw material for becoming the person you want to be.
Each part of us-mind, body and spirit, has a part to play in change, growth and transformation, whether the issues are centered within or in our relationships. There are so many ways to intervene. Options that fit you personally are available.
If you are struggling, or out of step with someone important to you, I invite you to take that first important step and call me at (303) 643-8914 for an initial consultation.
