You are feeling depressed, anxious, hopeless, lost, alone. The things that once brought you relief or pleasure no longer do. The people you used to rely on for support are burdened with their own problems. The world no longer feels like a safe place. You have dreams, hope and purpose but you feel a loss of motivation, energy and interest. You feel an overall sense of “this is not where I want to be in life.” You know that getting support would help but where do you begin?
I believe that to heal we must feel, and that can be very scary to do alone or with a stranger. If you struggle with insecurity within yourself and relationships, connecting and building a trusting relationship with a therapist will take time. I utilize attachment and bonding interventions to holistically develop a trusted relationship between myself and the client to create a secure attachment.
Whether you are looking for assistance and support for healing a specific mental health issue or trauma or you feel an overall sense of “this is not where I want to be in life,” mindful awareness and somatic-body interventions can be very beneficial. Using stress reducing meditations, increasing present awareness and self compassion and gentle care are all aspects of the work I utilize.
If it's a relationship issue, depression or anxiety, grief, or another of life’s many challenges, we all face times in our life where we feel overwhelmed and underneath the heaviness of life. Empathetic guidance and support can help us achieve our goals. I work with clients in an authentic and transparent manner, always applying my natural gifts of intuition, compassion and empathy.
Are you curious about yourself, your patterns, and your relationships? Are you struggling with a mental health issue that you might need some support in addressing? I believe that all humans are faced with problems and challenges in their lives and therapeutic connection and support is helpful for achieving positive mental health and resiliency. We all seek meaning and purpose in life.
In life, we will experience some form of loss, whether the passing of a loved one, the end of a relationship, or the loss of hopes and dreams. I believe that an empathic, resilient, strengths-based approach will eventually result in your ability to discover your silver lining and deeper insight into yourself. Through therapeutic healing, we can develop inner wisdom unique to ourselves.
Growing up in “diet-Culture” can leave us feeling less than loving towards our bodies. I understand. Whether it is disordered eating behaviors or shame about your body, I can offer support. Utilizing increased mind and body awareness and self compassion, we can become allies of our bodies.
These are difficult, anxiety provoking times and we can all benefit from stress reduction and self care. My approach combines mindful awareness, self compassionate kindness and somatic-body techniques to reduce the challenges of living with anxiety and panic . I walk the walk too.
Having experienced depression myself, I understand its challenges of shame, heaviness and isolation. After both studying and applying multiple therapeutic and alternative treatments to my own healing, I can help support your healing with compassion, kindness and useful tools to decrease your depression. I walk the walk too.
