How I Work
Whether you know it or not, you're already whole and complete. My role is to walk by your side, guiding you on your journey home - to reconnecting with your Self. Along the way I offer you the care and the skills to unlock restraints and allow you to more fully live from your core, so that you can make and create space for your genuine self to exist.
As humans, we are complex organisms seeking to thrive. Just as plants grow toward light and their roots toward water, we are wired to grow towards that which feeds us, be it physically, emotionally, mentally, or spiritually. The path toward growth may become blocked, however, as our past experiences and overriding thoughts often get in the way of our deeper wisdom. I understand very well how trauma, fear, anxiety, shame, and thoughts such as, "I'm not good enough," or "Something is wrong with me" keep us frozen or sheltered in old, self-protective patterns that no longer serve us.
These old patterns may keep us "safe" but in a non-thriving place, creating internal struggle, keeping us disconnected from others, and ultimately manifesting as anxiety, toxic stress, depression, low self-esteem, chronic pain and various inabilities to function at full capacity. This kind of everyday suffering is common yet uniquely rooted, and I can help you.
"The world breaks everyone and afterward many are strong at the broken places."
- Ernest Hemingway
I help my clients move beyond anxiety, fear, and pain so that moving forward into greater expansion becomes an everyday reality. I’ll highlight the strengths that you already possess as well as help you learn new tools for self-awareness and growth. You have the capacity to thrive!
My approach integrates talk therapy with mindfulness and body awareness. The psychotherapy process is one in which you will have a confidential, safe environment where you can explore, without judgment, the areas of your life where you feel stuck. Together, we will work toward accomplishing your goals.
