Emotions are temporary physical sensations that allow our body to communicate with us. There is no such thing as a "bad" emotion, but there are plenty that are highly uncomfortable or difficult to manage. Emotions have the power to help us change, heal, and grow. I work with individuals to accurately identify their emotions and understand how to regulate them productively and meaningfully.
An individual's attachment patterns with early significant persons in their life contributes to present and future connections with others. Identifying and understanding these patterns can help individuals develop more freeing ways of engaging with others and themselves now and in the future.
Holistic care involves looking at the multitude of factors influencing one's day-to-day life, from physical health, to spirituality, to relationships, and emotional wellbeing. An embodied sense of self contributes to an increased sense of balance and wellbeing.
Developing a secure and accepting sense of individuality involves building confidence, identifying false truths, setting boundaries, and expressing one's self authentically. I collaborate with clients so they may identify hardwired shame messages and become self-empowered to love and treat themself with kindness and grace.
Full and lasting change is possible for individuals who have struggled temporarily or chronically with depressive symptoms. We will work together to identify what is below the surface contributing to feelings of sadness, shame, anger, hopelessness, or worthlessness.
Anxiety is our body's way of trying to keep us safe, but it can often feel very uncomfortable or even debilitating. We will work together to identify the emotional experiences, physical sensations, and resulting patterns of your anxiety symptoms to increase a sense of wellbeing.
