If you want to challenge yourself to change the old patterns that don’t feel good to you any longer, I would be honored to support you in your journey. The first step is to learn about yourself on a deeper level with the support of a professional. While that can be intimidating, it is always worthwhile!
I believe in embracing the entire human experience - the light as well as the dark. Deeply knowing oneself is the most powerful tool we can possess in life. I will be your guide into the depths of yourself to help you form a clear vision based on not only your conscious experiences, but your unconscious mind as well. When appropriate, I approach the unconscious material via dream work.
As a compassionate therapist who is sincerely vested in your journey of healing, my mission is to lead you to see yourself as clearly as possible so you can holistically heal, love, and exist harmoniously. When we reach the point where we truly understand ourselves in a profound way, we don’t magically ascend - however when we know our shadows, we can learn to work with them and not project them. We transform into more compassionate beings, paving a softer, easier, more loving path for ourselves and those around us.
