Practicing Since: 2014
In addition to self esteem, anxiety, relationships and attachment, trauma and identity, I also specialize in working with queer, trans/non-binary, non-monogamous and BIPOC folks with an anti-oppressive and harm reduction lens. I have some reserved slots for BIPOC for $60/session.
We often get enmeshed with our partners and others in our lives. It's how humans survive socially. We are totally subconsciously playing out some past patterns when this happens. Let's gain some awareness, have compassion for these parts of yourself trying to get your needs met, and at your own pace help you learn to have independent thinking and feeling that is more grounded in self, which will allow for a healthier and more authentic connectivity between you and the other.
If you want to deepen your relationship with yourself, there's no better place to look than the unconscious! Using mindful somatic experiential depth therapy (aka listening to your body and thoughts/feelings/imagination for hidden meaning), together we will put together a map of the parts of you, and work to heal them at this deeper level and integrate them together into one grounded, authentic, clear self.
Often we turn inward to blame ourselves to explain why our needs are not getting met. This can lead to chronic shame and self doubt, and continuous self-sabotaging patterns of betrayal that keeps us in that same cycle of self blaming. But it is often masked in perfectionism and high performance. With so much compassion, we unpeel these layers to the root, at your own pace, to help you feel the love and self acceptance you crave and deeply deserve: that you are unequivocally a badass.
In my opinion we all have women's issues. Our society teaches us to prioritize performance, competition and intellectualism over kindness, mutuality, vulnerability and intuition. Often you have been given roles and expectations you did not ask for. I help you balance your divine feminine and masculine, regardless of your current gender, in order to experience both independence and autonomy with interdependence and community. You will learn boundaries, confidence, vulnerability and assertiveness.
I work with individuals to help navigate self in relationship. Depending on which end of the attachment spectrum you are on, we may work on differentiating your own thoughts and feelings from your partner and family of origin, or we may help you lean more toward others without feeling burdened or losing yourself. Once we help you understand what's going on internally, I will help guide you to take action at your own speed through communication and decision making that brings you joy and ease.
