"I am not what happened to me. I am what I choose to become." ~ Carl Jung. Do you feel overwhelmed, have pain, grief, anxiety, depression, or unseen shadows that prevent you from healing or from choosing better decisions, relationships, and allowing yourself to matter in your own life? My experience and education can help people hungering for more purpose, fulfillment, and nurturing relationships instead of dissonance, exhaustion, and sacrifice, those who know what you were aiming for, but discovered you’re at the top of the wrong ladder. If you feel like you’re different or unseen, then I may be the psychotherapist you’ve sought.
I’m currently taking my Ph. D. training in Integrative Therapies and Healing Practices, I studied numinous experiences with Jungian Analyst Lionel Corbett M. D. for 4 years; & I'm a licensed marriage and family therapist, I’ve worked with Psychoanalyst Kristi Walsh, Ph. D. in Ventura, CA for 3 years. LinkedIn Profile: https://www.linkedin.com/in/abouttara
I’ll work together with your unique challenges & concerns in a nurturing, supportive, holistic, creative way through pragmatic, whole-person work to help you live your values as an individual & as part of your family/community. Trained in somatic, attachment, dissociation, Gottman, NVC, Nurturing Parenting, hypnotherapy, 20 yrs in theatre & entertainment.
