Most of us have some ambivalence about most things because we have multiple motivations (to succeed, to be happy, to be liked for example). IFS is a way to reach consensus within ourselves, particularly if we experienced trauma.
Peace can come from meeting life’s suffering with clarity, grace and agency. Mindfulness allows us to know our patterns and motives more clearly so that we can choose paths that allow us to sleep better at night.
I adjust my approach based on your presenting strengths and challenges in collaboration with you. I do not expect you to adapt to my style. I am comfortable using a wide range of specializations, theories and approaches.
Ideas of gender are forced upon us before we are even born. It is a force than can be incredibly difficult to overcome and to stay attuned to oneself within. It is important to have people and spaces we can explore being ourselves with in a safe and supportive way. Like the definition of gender itself, I help you decide your own path, labels and lack of labels.
I have experience working with sexual problems including avoidance and compulsions. I also enjoy supporting communities that can experience stigma and oppression around sexuality, including those in open relationship, involved in kink and identifying as Transgender and GNC.
I work with people and their partners to resolve relationship issues, whether married, dating, polyamorous, gay, straight, or TGNC. I help people grow toward each other and into their authentic selves in relationships.
I have a wealth of experience and use a wide variety of approaches to help people heal from their unique combination of trauma symptoms, including flashbacks, dissociation, panic, avoidance, depression, irritability and low self-esteem.
So many marginalized populations and folks who grow up with abuse or addiction in their households adapt by living life from the outside in-adjusting to what they have been told implicitly and explicitly to be for other people in order to access love and resource. This also happens to be a symptom of codependency, a normal reaction to abnormal circumstances. I can help you reorient to yourself.
