Hi, I'm Alana. Reaching out for support can be hard, especially when you are moving through the groundlessness of loss or transition, feeling stuck, overwhelmed, drained, or ashamed, experiencing a lack of meaning, or when you feel like you have lost a part of yourself. Sometimes the surface of our experience can look and feel one way, like the outer shell of a geode. Therapy can help explore the imaginative possibilities of who we are beyond the shell, towards a more integrated perspective where new meaning can be discovered.
I offer depth psychotherapy that's relational. Healing happens as you can begin to witness and share fragmented parts of yourself and have your innate, basic goodness seen and reflected. In the process, I work collaboratively with you. I trust in the wisdom and validity of your symptoms, approaching the work with a tender, playful, and genuine curiosity.
There really is no wrong place to begin, and sometimes just making the first call can feel supportive. Please reach out for an initial 20-minute phone conversation. Together, we can decide if we are a good fit and set up a session. I look forward to hearing from you!
