About

I help clients heal through connection. I believe that most of our emotional struggles stem from some sort of disconnection: to our bodies, our feelings, our desires, our roots, our people, or that "something more" in life. There is an overwhelming amount of evidence that we are healthier & more functional when we feel we are genuinely seen, felt, heard, and understood. And it's my goal to bring this kind of space to therapy.
My own journey through anxiety, depression, and complicated family dynamics has allowed me to appreciate how challenging life can be. Healing can be frustrating, messy, but always it is possible. We are always much more wise & brave than we give ourselves credit for.
My approach is warm and focused. My methods are trauma-informed, body-based, and family systems oriented (i.e. who did you become in the family you grew up in?). I also focus on emotional regulation & interpersonal behaviour. Visit my website contextcounsellinghere.com to learn more!
Я помогаю людям отметать ненужное в поисках ясности. Часто мы замечаем себя посреди хаотично меняющихся картинок повседневности и чувствуем, что застряли, не знаем, как выбраться, вернуть вкус жизни, вернуть состояние легкости, интереса, и тот блеск в глазах, который видели последний раз много лет назад в зеркале. Мои клиенты - люди, находящие ответ на вопрос "кто я" в этом хаосе и прокладывающие свой путь к новой интересной жизни.
Я помогаю не по книгам, а из личного опыта: годы изоляции, тревожности, депрессии, стресса от иммиграции и выгорания помогли мне интегрировать знания о поддержки клиентов и искать наиболее эмпатичный подход к моим клиентам. Мой главный урок, которым я делюсь с миром - "жизнь полна непредсказуемостей, и в этом ее прелесть".
Атмосфера, которую я создаю - чувство тепла, симпатии и фокуса на клиенте. В течении работы мы с вами строим новые, прочные связи с собой, с окружающими и с миром. И в этом я нахожу своё личное счастье!
