Are you really hard on yourself? Do you struggle with shame or guilt? Do you find yourself comparing yourself to others? Do you feel like you never measure up? Are you sensitive? If these are common themes in your life then perhaps we might be able to work together. I center my work around self compassion. I believe that only from a place of self compassion can we feel grounded within ourselves enough to develop a compassionate relationship with others around us. I utilize mindfulness and somatic body oriented work in order to help us connect deeper with our self, our inner knowing and to be able to cultivate trust with ourselves.

If you are feeling alone, lost, angry, depressed, you are right where you need to be. Part of embracing your true self involves a process of shedding beliefs, assumptions, and habits that are constricting and learning to express what you’ve censured. At a young age, we learned to shut down feelings, wishes, and impulses that were not pleasing to our parents and society. This allows us to gain acceptance, but it constricts our spontaneity and playfulness. I will join my clients on their journey to discover where they lost touch with their inner child and help them to rediscover the most authentic version of their self.

Bravely stepping out of our comfort zone and navigating with curiosity and an open mind what we find challenging and painful allows us to grow and transform. My job is to help you feel safe, understood and connected while engaging in this exploration together. My approach is compassionate, non-judgmental and collaborative, ultimately trusting in your wisdom and inner knowing. I have found that by bringing awareness and compassion to our minds, emotions and bodies we are able to notice conditioned beliefs, thoughts and behaviors that may no longer serve us.

Sometimes we feel stuck and need insights into our own feelings, thoughts and behaviors. We may wonder if there is a way to face difficulties in our lives that allows for change and growth. We are all conditioned through our familial, cultural and societal systems. By examining the intersections of our identities, we can look closer at how early experiences have shaped us. Through self-reflection, we may be able to begin to unlock patterns and increase our awareness around areas where we struggle.
