I am passionate about working with young adults, women, and adolescents/teens, especially regarding abuse and trauma-related healing. I believe a large part of our healing comes while improving our relationships with our selves. This can involve learning to communicate boundaries, establishing self-care practices, improving your body relationship, managing anxiety, acknowledging and healing inner wounds/trauma, talking through sexuality, and the involvement of spirituality in your healing.
Relational-Cultural Therapy, stemming from Feminist Theory, states that people grow in and towards relationships. It can be difficult to grow and heal outside of our important relationships. Sometimes it is even in certain relationships that we believe we cannot grow. Through this theory, I can facilitate relationship-building with the self, others, and the communities you are involved in.
Attachment Theory is a lens through which your style of connecting with others can be seen. It is necessary to process through our connection styles in order to improve relationships to the self and others. This work can be beneficial in the beginning stages and continue through your healing process.
Our bodies hold complete memories of everything that has happened to us and the generations that have come before us. There is so much history in our bodies that we often are not even aware of. It is through connection to the body that we can begin to heal from trauma, abuse, general unhealthy patterns, and more.
I have come across so many people who have opened up to me about their experiences in life and have found my passion to focus on women and the issues that arise for us to overcome. As women in our society, we are often disconnected from our own selves by abuse/harm from others, religious ideals, societal expectations, relationships, racial biases, transphobia, and so much more. It is only in reconnection with our relationship to self that I believe growth and healing can occur.
Life just likes to throw us some hardballs that can be incredibly difficult to catch and/or adjust to. I believe this is especially prevalent to those in young adulthood and all those just trying to survive through a global pandemic. Adjusting to life's surprises can cause significant anxiety and depression, trauma symptoms, and general difficulty doing day-to-day activities.
I'm particularly passionate about Health At Every Size and reconnecting with our bodies. All of us - men, women, and non-binary folx - can experience body image issues as we live in a society that highly values one type of body. We are shown socially that our bodies will never be enough. Through body image work and somatic therapy techniques, we can work to heal our image of our selves and love our bodies where they are at.
