About My Clients
You're the go-to person in so many people's lives--except your own. You've put yourself on a never ending hamster wheel, and no matter how hard you try, you never feel you're enough. So often, you feel frustrated, resentful--and guilty for feeling that way. How do you show up for yourself the way you show up for everyone else when you're not even sure if that's ok? It's a lot, but not something you have to take on by yourself. Let's help you find balance, and find some space for you to be.
My Background and Approach
People will say, I've talked this through--this thing, this issue that I have--but it's still there. While there's always space in therapy to talk, one of the approaches I use has more of a somatic base. What that means is taking the information that the body has stored in it and uncovering it, giving it language, and making sense of what's there. So often, the head wants to go one way, and the body wants to go in a completely different direction. Sometimes looking at what your body feels like, and the impact it has on how you feel, helps you get a better handle on your full experience and gives you more complete information to help you feel more grounded, to slow down and make better decisions for yourself.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
It's often said that the most important component of therapy is your relationship with your therapist. Listen, if you don't feel comfortable with your therapist, how will you feel comfortable exploring all that overwhelming, yucky stuff that comes up. If I'm right, you've probably tried to figure a lot of that stuff on your own anyways. But doing it alone might be what got you here in the first place. Sometimes we need other people--if not to figure everything out for us, to at least help with some of the heavy lifting of moving those thoughts and feelings around until they make sense. It's also often said that while we are often hurt in relationship, we also can heal in relationship. My hope is that through our therapeutic relationship, you take those first steps towards healing yourself.
