Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Oakland, CA
It is important to recognize and name the social constructions that exists and the impacts they have on shaping how we think we should function and interact with others. Cultural and systemic oppression can create a heaviness that can bring feelings of hopelessness. At the core, it is important to understand our own truths, acknowledge what be bring and have to offer, and embrace and celebrate who we are as unique individuals.
When it comes to trauma, it is important to recognize how it is interlaced within ourselves and our relationships and interactions with others. While aiming to understand how trauma impacts our lives and bodies, my goal is to help my clients identify and understand existing trauma in order to heal. Those feelings can be moved and shifted to prevent us from remaining stagnant.
How do our bodies respond to stress? Are there truths to the thoughts we’re having? How do I manage it all? When it comes to anxiety, it is important to have clients monitor and track somatic and physical symptoms. Working through those thoughts allows us to break the barriers that exist and identify action steps to move forward.
