About Be BOLD
From the Owner: What’s in a Name?
I know you have places to go and people (maybe even one of us?) to see, so let me give you the short of the long:
I wanted a word, or words, that started with a B. I’ve always liked alliterations (being named Brittany Bate, and all). That was my jumping off point. Not super earth-shattering, I know. But it IS real. I like to keep it real – that’s something important to know about me and my style.
I have said for so long that change is really hard, and really scary. Because of this, I believe everyone who comes to see me has at least one thing in common – they are brave, even if they do not know, or feel, it yet. But I think there is a deeper layer to bravery that I hope to bring out of my clients.
BOLDNESS. I want you to go beyond and through brave, and be bold. Be BOLD in your pursuit of happiness. Be BOLD in your journey to live your most authentic life. Be BOLD in building the life you deserve, as the person you truly are. Be BOLD in confronting your past trauma(s). And be BOLD enough to face your addictions head on, with my help of course. I want you to be BOLD, but you do not have to be BOLD alone.
For me, being BOLD is personal. Making the decision to pursue my solo private practice required me to be both brave and bold. To take the proverbially leap of faith in the pursuit of what I knew I wanted. After all, like Robert Frost said, Freedom lies in being bold.
