Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it - Rumi

You may be approaching therapy thinking that there’s something wrong with you, or that you are a problem. Perhaps there are parts of you or qualities within you that you wish you could embody, but something inside keeps getting in the way. I do not believe there is anything wrong with you, or that you are a problem that needs fixing. I view human development as a process that occurs spontaneously under supportive conditions. For example, when you see a plant that looks unwell, we don’t conclude that the plant is “no good” and throw it out. Rather, we shift the internal and external conditions to support the plant in thriving.

As a clinician, I take a holistic, integrative, decolonizing approach, drawing principles from Transpersonal, Humanistic, and Experiential therapeutic modalities – including expressive arts and movement, and focusing (connecting with felt sense). I have completed the Level 2 training in the NeuroAffective Relational Model (NARM) to address developmental, attachment and complex trauma.

Healing is not an easy journey, but the journey is a privilege to walk with clients. Sometimes we may find ourselves stuck and wondering why embodied change feels continuously evasive. Genuine healing often requires going deeper than our cognition into our body and depth psychology. I gently welcome you to contact me via email to schedule a free 20-minute consultation.
