"Your vision will become clear only when you look into your own heart. Who looks outside, dreams. Who looks inside, awakes." - Carl Jung
Therapy is a process of inner exploration. Whether you are grieving a loss, navigating a major life change, need to communicate more effectively in your relationships, or desire to grow into a truer, more connected version of yourself, you don't have to go it alone. I am here to support you by being a compassionate witness and guide. I'll help shine light on what holds you back and teach you how to be more loving to yourself along the way.
The effectiveness of therapy lies greatly in the therapeutic relationship we create together. That's why I'm passionate about building a safe space for you to open to the truth of who you are. A safe space for you to be brave in.
Issues I treat:
Grief and loss
Life changes and transitions
Self-esteem, self-love, and self-care
What You Can Expect in a Session
We’ll work with a combination of talking and experiential techniques. Typically, we’ll begin by talking about what’s going on for you so that we can understand it and uncover what’s keeping you stuck. There may be times we begin with silence, Restorative Yoga, or mindfulness meditation before diving in. Then we may shift into art therapy, somatic body inquiry, guided imagery, or techniques such as psychodrama and inner parts work depending on your needs in the moment. Sometimes we might talk through the hour, and other times we might be engaging in creative work. I’ll meet you where you’re at and work collaboratively with you to take the next step.
