You are the meaning maker, the ever persistent expert of your life and experiences. Your unique humanity will be given space here. If you are curious to explore the profound power of choice, the expansive space between a naturally programmed reaction and your authentic chosen response, and in deepening an authentic connection to yourself and others, this may be the space for you. I seek to honor your autonomy and provide a space where creative expression, curiosity, and ingenuity might collide to present you with new avenues to explore. Let’s release expectations, and bravely explore the possibilities of your authenticity together.
I approach our collaboration through an attachment and trauma-informed lens, while working to deconstruct and reconstruct meaning in your life within an existential framework. No matter who you are, no matter what your story, you will have an affirming space with me.
New possibilities await you. Life can present us with a myriad of stressors- let’s bring focus to the blurry idea of the problem, stir up some change, break some patterns, find new experiences, and help you realize your most authentic, desired, and connected life, you truly deserve it.
