My Approach to Helping
I am a relational somatic therapist, which means that being real matters and the relationship that develops between us is very important. Part of the process of therapy is buidling trust and cultivating an alliance. The work I will assist you with involves a sincere effort to go inside yourself and uncover what you're actually experiencing, and then communicate that. We can discuss your difficulties and identify how you can influence them. When you're sharing a difficult experience, I will encourage you to describe any sensations you are having presently. I will teach you simple somatic exercises to help us both understand your personal way of handling your experience. We will work together to develop the solution that you're seeking for a more satisfying life.
My approach is rooted with the notion that we have access to self-healing and empowerment by attuning to our bodily experience from within (somatic awareness) to our emotional thought process, which incorporates holistic, relational, behavioral, and attachement modalities - along with somatic and psycho education.
