About

Have you ever asked yourself questions like, "Why do I feel uncomfortable when I'm not achieving something or doing something for someone else?" "Why do I have difficulty with saying no when I'm asked to do something, even if it's something I don't really want to do?" "Why do I feel unsettled when I receive a compliment?" "Why do I feel that I have to justify harsh language towards myself or others by saying that it's a joke?" "Even when I see someone is trying to shift their behavior, why do I accept that being mistreated in the meantime is appropriate?" Chances are that you probably long to be seen, feel heard and feel worthy.
Through a blend of DBT, existential psychology and decolonization therapy, I work with my clients to learn to trust and honor their own experiences, reconnect with their sense of inherent self-worth and start to make choices that are indicative of the deep knowing that they deserve more than the breadcrumbs that they were conditioned to regard as full meals.
