Josie Valderrama is not currently accepting new clients.
An opportunity to learn & heal together. A space where you can truly feel seen & heard. I know what it feels like to live with emotional turmoil, uncertainty, and confusion--frustration at wanting to live up to your potential, but feeling stymied. Seeking out therapy is courageous & momentum-building, a step which demonstrates commitment to loving oneself. Through self-determination, nurturance & compassion, find your way! Transformative work integrating intuition & tools (eg metacognition, somatics, dreams, creativity, trancework, CBT, books/apps). For clarity and peace of mind. Sincere, playful, irreverent, but always respectful.
Mindful collaboration. Body awareness (Somatic Experiencing™), parts integration (Internal Family Systems), the transpersonal (Generative Trancework) and trauma release (Flash EMDR). Clients typically work on boundary setting, speaking authentically, tolerating ambiguity, emotional recognition, shifting beliefs, self-trust, identifying values, & reparenting.
Expertise: anxiety, avoidance, alienation, perfectionism, creative blocks, emotional upheaval/ feeling "too much," life transition, interpersonal conflict, work-life balance, ego challenges, women's issues, spiritual quest/search for meaning, sexual minorities (NB, Ace, LGBTQ; BDSM; Poly). As a Filipino American, I am proud to serve FilAm & POC communities.
