About My Clients
I work with people whose parents and caregivers were unable to provide the emotional support and guidance they needed in childhood, even if they were well-intentioned. Ranging from emotional misattunement to outright abuse, these experiences lead to deep-seated (and sometimes unconscious) negative beliefs about oneself and others that precipitate depression, anxiety, unsatisfying careers, disconnected relationships, and difficulty feeling satisfaction and contentment.
How I Can Help You
We cope with the aftermath of painful experience (anxiety, anger, shame, hypervigilance, depression) by creating workable personas or "protectors," committed to avoiding further emotional injury at any cost. Day-to-day challenges trigger our team of protector parts with situations that elicit reactive, shielding responses, and keep us stuck looping in repetitive cycles. While these protective defenses with their "never again" mantra may have reliably sheltered us in the past, today they function as painful reminders of lingering wounds and barriers to joyful, meaningful connection with others. When connected to and operating from our true SELF, we can cultivate secure—ultimately transformative—attachments to the shunned, shamed, and exiled pain-holding parts of our innermost being. This process engenders an internal harmony and equanimity once only dreamed possible, allowing you to make choices grounded in the authenticity of who you truly are.
