About My Clients
Do you ever feel like you are walking through life disconnected from the world around you? Perhaps you find yourself questioning your purpose on this earth or “what is the point of it all?” Often when we have experienced pain, suffering and trauma we learn to disconnect from the core parts of ourselves as a form of protection. As a result, we become stuck in a constant state of anxiety, perfectionism, people pleasing or codependency as an attempt to reclaim “wholeness” in our life.
My Background and Approach
Reconnecting with ourselves is no easy fix, there is no magic pill. Rather it is a commitment to show up, be brave and honor our most real and authentic self. My approach to counseling is combination of Western knowledge taken from concepts of psychology and philosophy paired with more traditional healing practices such as body work, Reiki and yogic principles. Thus by marrying these two worlds we will discover ways to not only change your mindset, but also transcend your healing on a deeper level by connecting to the wisdom of your body to reach your highest self. Furthermore by integrating these two forms of healing we will help you learn to accept the "shadow parts" within you while also discovering your own innate strengths buried deep within.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
I personally like to think of myself as a philosopher first and a counselor second. Meaning that I believe that we all harbor the ability to heal and transcend ourselves, provided we are given the right conditions to flourish. Human beings are complex, rich and full of many contradictions. When these parts feel disconnected we feel these wounds through our moods, unexplained body aches and thought patterns. I know first hand what is like to feel disconnected from yourself in a world which values sameness and blending in. However, I believe all parts of us should be welcomed at the table, no matter our race, beliefs or lived circumstances. Thus as a feminist I believe it is important to recognize the systemic factors which contribute to oppression and continue to raise awareness of the negative impact of these patterns. Each of us has a purpose and gift to share with the world, are you ready to unlock yours?
