Most of us strive to feel at peace and confident in our moment-to-moment lives, but painful past experiences and anxieties about what lies ahead can make this challenging. Our self-worth can be affected by these influences, and our love for ourselves can become conditional. By processing our past experiences and changing the relationship that we have with our unpleasant emotions, we can begin to form a more stable, loving connection with ourselves and the people around us. Through this work, feelings of peace and confidence become less affected by external “successes” and “failures,” and we can courageously step out into the world as a healthier and happier version of ourselves.
Our work together may include psychodynamic, emotion-focused, mindfulness, and client-centered approaches. However, I view counseling as a collaborative process, with human connection at its core. We both bring an important piece to the therapy room; I bring an understanding of psychological concepts, while you bring an expertise about your own experiences and cultural values. Using our relationship as an anchor, we can begin the journey of exploring your inner world, and, as a result, guide you to living the life you envision.
