Do you feel like you aren't good enough? Do you struggle with issues of self esteem or self worth? Do you want to explore mind-body connection & the way stress or emotional pain lives in our bodies? If these are themes for you or in your relationships, then perhaps we might work well together. I center my work around self compassion. Only from a place of self kindness can we feel grounded within ourselves to develop a compassionate relationship with others around us. I use mindfulness and somatic body oriented work in order to help us connect deeper with our self, our inner knowing and to be able to cultivate trust with ourselves.
So much of our pain occurs in relationship to others, and I believe it can be helpful to find healing in relationship as well. For this reason, I work relationally with my clients. I will partner on your journey of exploration so that you are not alone. We may grow together as we learn to trust one another and ourselves.
Please send me an email if...your expectations of yourself no longer feel sustainable and you want to find compassion for yourself, your child, or your partnership even with your imperfections! I see the goal in this work to find wholeness amongst all parts of yourself.
