Welcome! I would love to talk with you about how therapy may support the person you want to be in the world.
Clinical Social Worker in Washington
This looks like tools including but not limited to meditation to orient ourselves to the present moment. I offer practice in session as well.
This is a orientation back to our body as a resource for processing emotions and for releasing emotions. I often bring awareness back to our body as our home, but if you feel uncomfortable in your body as a result of trauma or just plain old neglect and shame, we'll do this slowly with lots of gentleness.
Do you feel anxious and out of sorts? irritable, have a hard time sleeping or sitting still. I love to help find the calm under the storm for folks.
Are you living with a chronic illness or endless enduring pain? have you just received a new diagnosis for a illness you are trying to wrap your head aroud? I love to talk with folks about their feelings around illness.
I believe in calling out and speaking the truth to the systems of oppression that surround and us and impact our healing journey. This may look like us having a conversation about your frustrations at work being compounded by the overt sexism in your industry or it could involve a safe place to unpack the microaggressions your mother in law drops at every famiy gathering. I think it's important to discuss these moments in therapy and I work to be an ally and a advocate for my clients.
