Do you struggle with big emotions, negative self-talk, insecurities, shame, or fear? Is it challenging for you to identify, communicate or prioritize your wants and needs? As a therapist and coach in emotional and relational wellness, one of my major missions is to show clients, through embodied experience, how to process emotions and relate to inner experience in ways that better identify and meet their emotional needs individually and with others. The outcome of this is relief, peace, grounding, and inner trust. My approach embodied, and also practical, directive, and structured, with offered tools, strategies, and instructions.
Let's deeply rewire your old patterns so you may finally feel connected, live in alignment with your wants and needs, and enjoy confidence, inner safety, peace, self-love, and self-worth! My approach is strongly grounded in mindfulness, somatics and acceptance. I support LGBTQA+, ENM, sex positivity, and spiritual, religious, as well as secular frameworks.
One of my focuses is in guiding people to let go of shame and self-criticism and in cultivating self-worth, self-love, and self-acceptance. We can practice safely processing feared or shamed emotions, welcoming and integrating rejected parts, and resolving internal conflicts, so you may feel inner peace and safety and live consciously.
