My Approach to Helping
Each of us bears a unique stamp of existence, one that makes us stand out against the backdrop of the turning world. Along with this unique stamp of existence, comes a unique form of suffering. Suffering, pain, wounds, grief, loss — all-natural and inevitable aspects of life. Rare is it, that we are given the opportunity to express and sublimate these wounds and losses in a healthy and positive way. Nor is it commonplace for us to find a nurturing and safe environment in which we can find validation, exploration, and affirmation.
As a visually impaired individual, living with progressive blindness—I understand on a deeply human level, just how difficult it can be to move through and forward, in the face of heavy loss and suffering. I also understand, just how important it is to feel accepted, to be able to explore both the dark and the light of the human experience, and the cruciality of affirmation.
We cannot shed our traumas, in the same way that we cannot shed who we truly are. I believe in moving through loss and moving forward with trauma. Trauma does not mean the end of our lives, or the end of you. Trauma can be the chrysalis for growth, change, and reaching a higher potential, never seen. Suffering never ceases to be, it merely ceases to be suffering.
And while we often feel alone in dealing with these struggles — you don't have to go it alone. I invite you to reach out to me, as there is always hope.
