Finding a therapist is no easy task.
It can feel overwhelming to scan through endless faces of therapists with their different-yet-similar biographies. Even once you've selected your top picks, it might take awhile longer to have the courage to reach out. But I assure you, you've already come so far. Recognizing your need for therapy can't happen without significant self reflection. No matter which path you took to get here, this investment toward personal wellbeing is momentous!
I believe every person has access to inner wisdom which can help point direction toward their unique path of healing. Unfortunately, for one reason or another, we might lose connection, even trust, with our own gut instincts. Meanwhile, persistent, uncontrollable emotions and unfulfilling relationships can leave us absolutely depleted. Your ideal life may seem out of reach under so much stress and exhaustion. A performative smile can only last so long.
I see my therapist role as being a supportive guide helping clients get back in touch with their true essence and finding inner stability.
My therapy sessions are typically client led, while offering feedback and interventions along the way. This allows clients to customize their therapy experience as it would be most supportive to them.
My general orientations include Relational, Transpersonal, and Psychodynamic. My work is informed by Mindfulness, Hakomi, Internal Family Systems, CBT, Enneagram, Archetypal Astrology, and Dreamwork.
While I'm more eclectic than your classic talk therapist, I only draw from perspectives which resonate and are useful to you.
