My Approach to Helping

How does your need for certainty play out? Does it force you to predict? Does it persuade you to declare things that you don't actually know? Perhaps the need for certainty is powerful enough to rob you of genuine moments with loved ones or with yourself. Research finds that people who take risks (those who step into the unknown) are found to be happier than those who merely reach for reward or gratification. Why? Because healthy risk-taking has rewards sewn into the experience when we authentically try. It turns out that making an effort actually supports our skills and beliefs in self-advocacy, self-love and self-worth.

Theoretical Influences that Guide My Work

Our sense of discovery can get hindered by preconceived ideas. Post modern therapy invigorates the exploration of social frameworks and the "selection pressures" these particular frames impose. In session, we locate prescribed "trouble" areas determined -by others- about you, such as: How you think, how you dress, where you work, what you drive, who and how many people you sleep with, how you behave, and what you do with your body.

This work is evocative as it invites you to enter the therapeutic framework and then exceed it.
What this means is that you flourish beyond our discussions.

As we go, insight and awareness deepen. These new discoveries will not qualify or disqualify you. They will not make you legitimate nor de-legitimate you. And they will not reward or punish you or anyone else. Our work taps knowledges from below, or what is known as 'local knowledge' aka your lived experience and values it.

Sessions are not aimed at developing mastery of how you should be. Instead, we audit systems such as family, school, and work as these areas impose normativity (norms). We uncover convention and how it unfortunately quells innovation, inter-subjectivity, and serves to structuralize experiences; by pejoratively labeling emotions, behaviors, and thinking that are not considered "standard."

Our work is geared to incentivize you to emerge in your own personal endeavors, emotional meanings, and direction. To be valid it only takes you. Call me.
