I specialize in deep feelers and helping thinkers heal past wounds, inter-generational trauma and break out of cycles that keep them stuck.
Clinical Social Worker in Seattle, WA
We do not get to choose the trauma we inherit, but we can choose to work towards healing it so that we do not continue to project that trauma onto ourselves and others. This is some of the most important work we can do. Working through family of origin and generational trauma supports us in understanding ourselves more fully, break out of toxic patterns, living more fully, and make a positive impact on ourselves and this world.
Personal growth is a important part of the human experience. However, it can feel overwhelming and there is a lot of bad advice out there. Personal growth needs an individualized and holistic approach in order to be effective and sustainable. Together we will work towards individualized goals with specifically tailored approaches to help you actualize your potential and reach your goals.
Spirituality and religion have done a lot of harm to many people. Yet many people experience a longing for some type of spiritual connection. I help people who are unlearning traumatic and toxic beliefs from religious experiences, those who want to seek a healthy connection to spirituality, or those who are interested in exploring ancestral forms of spirituality. Spirituality does not need to be part of your life, but it also does not need to be restrictive, harmful, or shame based.
Connecting the mind, body and spirit is essential in the healing and growth process. I utilize many somatic approaches in order to support better integration of the change we are trying to create. This can look very different and is individualized for the person and situation. This could include art, movement, mindfulness, inner child work, visualizations, embodied practices, or simply attuning to your body.
Together we work to bring the unconscious conscious through non judgmental exploration, inquiry and analysis as we seek to deepen our insight and integrate ourselves more fully.
We will address you life holistically including our needs for creativity, connection, intellectual stimulation, novelty...etc. By looking at the full picture, we will create a integrative approach to supporting your fulfillment and growth.
