My Approach to Helping
The journey of recovery from trauma can be an isolating and terrifying thing to endure. Our bodies carry the emotional wounds of the past into our present form, and glimpses of that pain can appear unexpectedly. But we do not have to be prisoners to our histories. If we learn to release this pent up energy; to sooth our inner children that have experienced so much suffering, and coach them through finding safety, worthiness, and love in the world as it is right now, we can learn to walk through our lives as our own leaders, no longer prisoners of the traumas of our past.
One of my goals as a therapist is to build a totally unique, safe, healthy, and boundaried bond with each of my clients. I am strongly influenced by attachment theory, family systems, somatic awareness, mindfulness, and art. I am also a queer counselor, and a counselor of the queer! I believe in building meaningful relationships with my clients and sharing in their journeys of self-discovery and healing.
If you are looking to get through your pain and find peace and playfulness in your life again, I may be a good fit for you. I believe it is possible to heal even our most sacred attachment wounds and free ourselves from the binds of trauma. And by caring for our relationships with ourselves and others, we can begin this journey.
