START YOUR JOURNEY TOWARD A BETTER AND FULLER LIFE
Therapy for individuals who want to get to the root of their problems and make lasting change.
Associate Marriage and Family Therapist, #134774
I see myself as a compassionate and curious companion on your journey, helping explore how life events have impacted the way you show up in all aspects of your life and relationships. By working at the root of your problems, we can do the true work of healing so that you can experience freedom and authenticity.
Early childhood experiences create foundational patterns of interacting with others that operate under the surface of your mental health issues and life dissatisfaction. I explore these patterns and beliefs, so that we can work to interrupt their impact and allow you to live aligned with your values. In addition to feeling better, you should expect to:
Understand yourself better
Increase authenticity and self-compassion
Heal attachment wounds
Disentangle yourself from automatic behaviors and beliefs
Deepen your capacity for emotional experiencing
Heal from complex or single-event trauma
Set more effective boundaries
Improve your relationships
“Until you make the unconscious, conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate.”
ON THE HUNT FOR SASQUATCH
I love the power of myth and archetypes to demonstrate universal human experiences. When it comes to our inner workings, I think the Sasquatch legend makes a fun metaphor for the unconscious:
There are parts of ourselves lying in the shadows. Like the Sasquatch, we may see evidence of them here and there, but ultimately they are hidden, hard to understand, and often elusive. Sometimes these elements are aspects of our personality that have been subdued to fit into our family or the broader culture, and other times they represent hurts or traumatic events that work to disrupt our lives and our relationships.
Our work in therapy will help you find the Sasquatch within, both the beautiful and the disfigured parts of yourself that need to come into the light of day. Through this endeavor, you will find healing and support to become your true authentic self, experiencing freedom and self-acceptance. With this new knowledge of yourself, you will have greater choice and intentionality in your actions and relationships.
