Ask a marriage and family therapist! Anything you've wanted to ask a therapist, about therapy or life in general? Ask me anything!
Great Oaks Therapy Center is home to a group of marriage and family therapists, who have come to adopt an honest, authentic practice of therapy. Heck, their tagline is “where being a messy human is expected, encouraged even.” They are not your run of the mill “how does this make you feel” kind of folks. They focus on helping folks find their authentic voice within their own story; navigate through the chaos of various seasons of life.
This motivated, energetic group of women and men, are focused on empowerment of the client- they believe everything a person has to heal is already within them- it’s all about uncovering the tools a person already possesses!
Lindsay Ryan, is the resident blogger, expressive therapist and experiential therapist at Great Oaks Therapy Center. She heads up the blog WORTHY EXISTENCE, which is a therapist’s take on self-care and personal growth. She curses a lot, and has a habit of wearing workout clothes to work, but has a caretaker’s heart, and the ability to help folks see their patterns to keep them stuck! She is heading up this AMA, and with the help of her fellow clinicians at Great Oaks, will do their best to respond :).
Lindsay believes authenticity is the truest form of connection, and only by being vulnerable with others is this amazing change going to happen. Lindsay offers a variety of services and is ridiculously passionate about having conversations with others that allow them a vulnerable experience.
“This mental health stigma makes these topics difficult to talk about! As a therapist, working on her own personal growth, I feel the effects of the stigma all the time. In the therapy office, I help folks navigate this path of life, I’m working through it myself! My blog, Worthy Existence talks a lot about the struggle of the high functioning person with mental health issues. It is my hope that the conversations we start in the therapy room will take seed and bloom outside of closed doors. Connection cultivates growth. Also, the beauty of having a group practice is to have support ourselves and have more minds focused on our clients! I'm gonna rely on my fantastic co-therapist clinicians to help impart authentic wisdom. Lol. Let’s have a conversation!”
