I work with the existentially burdened. Specialties: Dream Work, Grief, Trauma, Creative Blocks and Spirituality.
Licensed Professional Counselor in Atlanta, GA
Supervised by Annie Kelahan, LPC, ACS
When two human beings (you and I) encounter one another in the present moment, we have a way of animating our past. Therapy may provoke old, automatic thinking and feeling. We'll work to notice these default experiences and wonder together how it all connects to long-standing patterns in your social and "inner" life. In psychodynamic therapy, our relationship is the vehicle for exploration. A focused conversation in the present, that illuminates old patterns, to liberate your future vitality.
The individual and the collective constantly shape one another. You exist, always, in relationship to people, society, the earth, and the cosmos. My graduate and ongoing training include modalities like ecopsychology and an intersectional approach to the collective unconscious, astrology, + tarot. Your spirituality and imagination are transpersonal. So is your sensitivity to society, inherited roles, and collective/ancestral traumas. Let's make space for your multiplicity.
I have a background and am immersed in ongoing training in Jungian psychotherapy. With focus on your psyche's innate creativity and ability to heal, we create a dialogue between the conscious and unconscious aspects of your mind. Dream work, astrology, tarot, artistic practice (like writing or drawing) and imagination are all effective tools here. Depth therapy is like burrowing into the ground to see what's hidden in the soil of life above. We focus on the roots for lasting change.
My job is to be with you wherever you are at in your grief. Sometimes trauma and grief arrive together, sometimes not, I am competent in both scenarios. We'll work with your loss to find a place for it, at your speed, so you can allow the grief to move you into the next phase of your life. As slow as it can feel sometimes, grief is an invitation to movement. We're not meant to do it alone.
I work with practical spirituality for everyday life and know spiritual bypassing when I see it. If you've dedicated yourself to a path but keep getting stuck in similar patterns, it's likely you're missing out on a vital part of your humanity. There are riches in life's messiness. You can learn to love your shadow. I am also a great fit for the spiritually curious, but technologically, or scientifically-minded. I speak to both worlds and can help you integrate your full range of self.
Sometimes its difficult to distinguish HSP from other neurodivergent issues. The result is often the same: the world feels like it was designed for other people, not you. Relationships (work, social, family) are exhausting, overwhelming, or somehow pass you by. You're always in recovery or protection mode. We will work together to own your strengths and uncover ways you can show up as your full self in a life you enjoy living.
