I work from an approach that believes the whole is greater than the sum. I don’t work in parts but meet you as an entire individual knowing one area of life can affect all. Together we can look at your mental, physical, emotional, social and spiritual well -being and create a plan that helps bring more balance and harmony to your life.
My approach is rooted in bringing all parts of an individual/s into this space. I look at therapy as an inclusion of a person's foundation which includes their culture, lived experiences, trauma, relationships, environment, mental, physical, spiritual and financial belief systems and how that plays a role in their life today.
I incorporate different methods from a variety of evidence based practices but also include what feels appropriate and culturally authentic to my client, we can work together to determine best practices moving forward.
I am open to this space being used as a place where we navigate hardships, sit in discomfort, unlearn what no longer sustains you, and learn new ways that create better relationships and quality of life most importantly with self, and next with others.
I approach therapy from learning your trauma and understanding that trauma shapes us, creates narratives in our lives and affects the ways in which we navigate the world, relationships and our connection to ourselves. Trauma happened to you, not because of you. Let's process through the trauma together and understand how it shows up past and present and what ways we can help you feel more safe in your everyday life.
I trust that within you lies all the answers, best decisions and intuition to direct you toward your best self. You are the expert of your life and I am the supporter. My goal is to act as a fellow traveler on your journey and remind you to listen to self, allow you to learn self and gain that trust, while removing distractions of the world and helping guide you in directions should you lose sight, or feel lost along the way. Your part in this journey is to show up as honestly as possible, open-minded and willing to allow yourself space to grow.
