My Approach to Helping
I am psychotherapist and yoga therapist committed to supporting people who are impacted by personal, systemic, and vicarious trauma to re-embody and reconnect.
If you chose to work with me, we would work collaboratively in weekly therapy sessions to build self-awareness by exploring stories and patterns in your life that are blocking you from living the life you want. These stories can come from our personal experiences and the messages we get from society about who we are supposed to be based on our gender, race, sexuality, ability level, and socioeconomic status.
While I trust that you are the expert of your life, I am real with my clients around what I see coming up in terms of patterns and observations of what is happening in their lives and in our sessions to help to see where you can get out of your own way.
I also incorporate mindfulness and somatic practices in my work, so we may slow down the process and tap into emotions and bodily sensations arising in the moment. I integrate yoga therapy practices to build customized practices to help my clients find balance in their nervous systems. The more self-awareness you build the better able you are to make mindful choices in your life to take control of your emotions and life.
I love to laugh with my clients and find joy within the process of healing. We need to find the joy in order to hold the pain and move through the difficult parts of life.
