Together we will get to know many aspects of you. As we pay mindful attention to the functions, needs, fears, hopes of these different parts of you, we can foster a greater sense of ease in your life and open new avenues to joy and fulfillment. This is a fundamentally collaborative process. I facilitate your unique process by providing compassionate witnessing, skilled guidance, and empathic reflection.
Therapy is likely to include processing your thoughts and emotions, exploring your values, developing additional tools and resources, practicing mindful awareness, achieving self-defined goals, celebrating your successes, and perhaps sharing a little laughter along the way.
Together we may address:
Healing from complex trauma
Processing the impact of interpersonal relationships
Anxiety and/or depression
Significant life transitions
Grief and loss
Exploring life goals, values, personal growth, and finding fulfillment
Sexual identity, gender identity, transitioning, and LGBTQIA issues
Issues concerning power, equity, and oppression
Spirituality and meaning making
Couples therapy applies to any romantic constellation be it spouses, long-term partners, polyamorous relationships, dating, or "its complicated."
