Reality can sometimes bite, hard. I believe people can learn to bite back - and learn to be nourished. The difficulty is that we get stuck in patterns of relating, feeling, behaving, and thinking, to the point where our being can feel flawed, no matter how hard we resist. This struggle can lead us to feel alone with our difficulties, and out of strategies to overcome them. With a lifetime of accumulated coping strategies, some having become sources of stress rather than relief, this can further alienate us from others, and even ourselves. Coming out of isolation can be both tremendously uncomfortable and profoundly liberating.
Together, we’ll try to meet your challenges with gentleness, your gentleness with boundaries, your boundaries with flexibility, your flexibility with seriousness, your seriousness with lightness, your lightness with darkness, your darkness with humour, your humour with tears, your tears with resilience, and your resilience with the inevitable next challenge.
I strive to listen for the complexity of your identities (age, gender, sexual orientation, race, culture, family history, class, etc.): how you relate to them, and how they shape your experience. If my profile speaks to you, please do not hesitate to reach out and book an initial session for half of my regular fee. I look forward to offering my service.
