“You can’t go back and change the beginning, but you can start where you are and change the ending.” – C.S. Lewis

We all use stories to connect with others.

Stories help us find meaning and purpose. They are how we establish our identity in a confusing and often lonely world. That’s why it’s essential to examine what stories clients tell about themselves when they talk about their experiences. Clients with a history of trauma often enter therapy in the grip of a story about themselves where they’re the victim...

Maybe even that they “deserved” what happened to them.

Using narrative therapy with these clients can help them change this story that’s keeping them anxious, afraid, and stuck...

By helping them deconstruct their limiting story and reauthor it... so instead of being a victim, they can be the hero of their story. They can start to see themselves as someone who overcomes incredible hardships to not only survive but thrive… And in the process, uncover opportunities for growth, find meaning, and understand themselves better.

When a client changes their story, they change their life.
