My Approach to Helping
I work with clients to develop understanding and compassion toward themselves. So many of us speak to ourselves in ways we would never speak to a friend. It can be hard to let ourselves "off the hook" when we feel we could or should do better - as partners, parents, employees, bosses, friends... but when we are "on the hook" we feel bad, or worse. From that place, it is hard to grow and change.
Together we can create a safe space for you to explore where you are stuck. I will teach you ways of seeing and understanding that allow you to connect with yourself in new ways. How do your story and your thoughts about yourself shape how you feel? What do you hope for? It's time to get unstuck!
I weave together insights from neuroscience, behavioral, and cognitive research to work on the mind-body connection and address thoughts, emotions, and reactions to personal historical experiences. Though it sounds "sciency" my approach is warm and relational.
