Do you yearn for a sense of belonging? Do you often feel misunderstood? Have you been told to toughen up because you are "too sensitive"? Do you long to feel closer to others but feel overwhelmed by the task? Having the capacity for depth and complexity can be difficult to navigate in our competitive, linear-oriented, results-driven culture and can result in "shame". Knowing and accepting yourself for "you" (not what others think of you) is an important practice to cultivate and will help release toxic stress and shame.
Often individuals with emotional intensity and depth struggle with their own sense of grounding, either in their current relationships, in childhood with a narcissistic parent, or perhaps both. Assertiveness can feel like the "enemy" but when learned is the key to long-lasting healing and improved self-esteem.
The presence I bring into sessions comes from personal experience with traumatic memory/amnesia and spending 10+ years on the client side. I believe that a collaborative, non-hierarchical approach to therapy is the most critical element in healing within the therapeutic relationship.
