Our early-life experiences and traumas create negative beliefs about ourselves that we continue to unintentionally affirm throughout our lives. Behaviors feel familiar and yet we keep repeating them, even if they make us miserable.
Humans cannot only think their way out of these stuck thought patterns. We have to feel our feelings and create a sense of felt safety in order to heal, too. That's why I utilize both cognitive (thinking) and somatic (feeling) approaches like Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing, yoga, and mindfulness with my clients. This holistic approach creates dramatic, intentional change.
For nearly a decade, I've held space for clients to feel validated and inspired. Therapy won't feel overly clinical or cold; it should feel like connecting with a good friend who's going to see your potential and challenge you to become the very best version of yourself.
