Most of us aren't really sure why we think what we do about ourselves, where our insecurities have come from, and sometimes whether or not anything in our lives, now or previously, really rises to the level of trauma. I've seen many clients who don't understand how they can be so anxious, so critical of themselves, or so depressed. After all, they have a loving family and a good support system, so it "doesn't really make sense to complain". Yet, culture, imperfect parents having imperfect moments, misunderstood messages and so many other things leave us with imperfect views of ourselves.
I have a strong background in human development, a relational style of therapy, and a highly sensitive personality type. This combination means that I can help gently guide you to self validation and understanding and yes, changed beliefs so you can craft the life that feels right for you.
It's ok if you don't have all the answers. It's ok to acknowledge that some things have hurt you deeply, even if someone else "has it worse" or "it doesn't make sense when I have such a great family". If there are things that you want help sorting out or you want a place to be heard, I would love to help you explore those things.

I work primarily with women and older teenage girls to help them break through the bonds of socialized sexism, the trauma, anxiety and self-doubt these things create, and the impact they have on how women design their lives. We will explore internalized beliefs, the roles women play or want to play in their lives, and the chasm between existing and ideal life.

"
I was trained primarily in person centered therapy and still approach every client in such a way. However, I have strong feminist beliefs and feel this impacts how people see themselves. I believe that both CBT and a Jungian approach is helpful in addressing those beliefs, and that nature is a healing force. I bring elements of all of these and other styles into the therapy room.
