Instead of focusing on just your symptoms or what you're struggling with, I find it more useful to look at your whole experience and identify what may be in and out of balance at a given time. We work together, drawing from a variety of strategies, to create a healthier balance for your life, using the resources you have already and figuring out how to tap into other resources you may not know of.
We are not just our thoughts, we also experience everything on a physical level. Trauma-informed yoga and intentional movement can tap into your body's natural ability to heal from trauma, anxiety, and depression and to overall embody your experiences to live more fully. I understand it can feel frightening to be present with your body and I work with you at a pace that feels manageable.
The natural world can be a great (and affordable) resource for healing! I offer to meet people outdoors, which can decrease symptoms of anxiety and depression and help you be more present. Even if we meet indoors I find it useful to discuss your connection to the world around you and identify ways to connect more fully with it.
Are you interested in learning more about yourself and creating more connection in your life? You don't need to be experiencing crisis to benefit from counseling. I provide a space for you to gently explore where you are currently at emotional, physically, spiritually, cognitively, relationally and create more balance and connection, aligning more fully with your values. Join me!
I remember how difficult it can be to be a teen- confused about who I am and what I want out of my life, feeling pressure from adults to be a certain way, not sure what to do with my intense emotions. Sometimes just talk therapy isn't helpful for teens and I offer a variety of ways to explore their experience and learn how to navigate lifes ups and downs.
We often take on other people's criticisms of us and use them against ourselves, over and over again. I support you with becoming aware of patterns of self-abuse and offer ways to create a more compassionate way to relate to yourself.
Anxiety can feel overwhelming and take away your ability to experience joy and freedom. Many times anxiety is a result of trauma (ongoing or specific event) that you've survived, but your body remains stuck in feeling threatened. Anxiety is not just in your head- it's important to be able to build a sense of safety in your body, and we can do this together at a pace you are comfortable with.
Do you feel like you have no energy to live how you want to? Depression is not a lack of motivation, it's usually a result of feeling stuck in a situation or a lack of resources to process a challenging experience. You also don't need to be alone in your pain. We can explore your experience together and find ways for you to physically and emotionally regain the energy to be your best self.
