*ACCEPTING NEW ADULT CLIENTS, TELEHEALTH-ONLY. Clients can be located anywhere in California*
I understand first hand how the stories we tell ourselves can get in the way of living fully and thriving on purpose. As a survivor of sexual trauma and poverty, I aim to help clients make meaning of their life experiences and move from surviving to thriving. Our past can keep us in survival mode long after painful events have ended. I am a trauma-informed, whole-body therapist and I build relationships with folx who want to trust themselves and others. I support your understanding of experiences and help you use the tools that will produce confidence, compassion, and open hearted purpose.
Let’s collaborate in a journey towards healing to move you towards achieving your goals which may include:
*Working through and learning from past experiences
*Unearthing and nurturing healthy coping strategies for well-being
*Increasing connection to the body
*Increasing skills for healthy relating
*Integration of all the above
My approach incorporates:
CURIOSITY guides your discovery, I ask the questions that help you understand how you are in the world and from that understanding you will decide what changes you want to make.
EMBODIMENT is a skill that connects you to your body, I help you grow that skill so you have reliable access to your own inner wisdom, past and present.
EMOTIONAL EDUCATION demystifies feelings, emotions and behavior so you can make adaptive choices and build strategies that connect with your values and nurture the relationships you deserve.
