I am deeply committed to creating a safe space for you to piece together your life narrative and develop deeper insight into your own unconscious self.
Things that may have felt difficult prior to the pandemic carry a very different load now, as we learn to navigate life with Covid. While the idea of therapy may have felt radical before, it can now offer us a roadmap to developing greater internal strength to steer through the uncertainty. It is deep within our unconscious that we meet our true selves and can then begin the profound work of developing mechanisms for the lives we are seeking. I view it as a great privilege to bear witness to the strength that emerges from the courage of confronting the vulnerability of our own psychology.

I relate in a conversational therapy style, rooted in Narrative Approaches, utilizing strategies and interventions informed by EMDR, Internal Family Systems, and Humanistic perspectives.
Taking care of yourself can be exhausting, especially when you are taking care of others. Personal and professional relationships take effort and have a new meaning in this current time of social unrest and a global pandemic. You might be an overwhelmed parent. Or perhaps you are burnt out from working-from-home. You may be in a challenging relationship. Or maybe you are simply feeling out of sorts and trying to make sense of it all. When we're stressed we often forget who we are and what is important to us. By looking for help, you've taken the first step in regaining balance in your life, and finding yourself.

My work includes narrative, existential, and depth frameworks.
Feeling lost, abandoned, misunderstood, or exiled can lead to a disconnection from the soul. When we feel like no one wants us, we begin to abandon ourselves. We all have parts we dislike, often as a result of harmful messages we internalized from our families and society. The darkest parts of ourselves are often the most frightening, and consequently, the most rejected and ignored. It's in the darkness where we find pieces of ourselves we left behind, pieces that long to be loved and accepted. I’m here to tell you that every part of you is welcome in our work together. You are not alone, and you don't have to hide anymore.

Narrative Therapists
Narrative Therapy uses the client's storytelling to indicate the way they construct meaning in their lives, rather than focusing on how they communicate their problem behaviors. Walnut Creek Narrative Therapy embraces the idea that stories actually shape our behaviors and our lives and that we become the stories we tell about ourselves. There are helpful narratives we can choose to embrace as well as unhelpful ones. Although it may sound obvious, the power of storytelling is to elevate the client--who is the authority of their narrative--rather than the therapist, as expert. Check these therapists for find Narrative Therapy in Walnut Creek.
