Allow me to be a fellow traveler on your journey into the unknown parts of yourself. I'll ask for a deep commitment from you to participate in this process of self-discovery and self-healing. I believe that everyday stress has roots in your past. It is important for us to bravely move into those spaces when you are ready. Your sense of safety is vital in this process and we will develop our therapeutic alliance so you feel grounded beforehand. With deep trust for one another, we can bring about lasting transformations.
Our process will be informed by Jungian, Internal Family Systems (IFS), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), and Transpersonal Psychotherapy. We will also utilize experiential methods including guided meditation, breathwork, Ericksonian Hypnotherapy, guided imagery, and Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy.
I'd love to chat with you and set up a free 20-min consultation. Exploration may be difficult, but it's worth it! I'll do what I am able while we are together to help you on your journey to self-actualization. Please book a free consultation at vanderlcsw.com.
