The core of how I work:
1. COMPASSION – FOR SELF AND OTHERS
We cannot change what we are unable to accept. Developing a willingness to be compassionate toward ourselves is vital.
2. UNDERSTANDING WHY THINGS ARE THE WAY THEY ARE
Sometimes we can be overly hard on ourselves when we don’t understand the reasons we act or think a certain way. With my support, you’ll explore your past experiences, trauma, and relationships so you can better understand your current reality. Awareness is the first step.
3. UNPACKING NEGATIVE BELIEFS ABOUT SELF AND THE WORLD
Throughout our lives we learn a lot of stories about how we should see ourselves and perceive the world, especially when we are children. Understanding where your negative beliefs come from and realizing how they are no longer serving you is an important element of this work. Seeing those self-judgment narratives clearly can help create space for more positive and adaptive ways of perceiving yourself and others.
4. TAPPING INTO EMOTIONS
Feelings need to be felt, so we’ll feel them. It can be scary to explore our emotions. We can become afraid that feeling something will mean we get stuck in that feeling state, but in order to end, emotions need to be experienced. I’ll help you find safe ways to experience your feelings.
5. RECOVERING YOUR TRUE SELF
Who were you before the world told you who you should be or before traumatic incidents shaped you? We all have a true version of ourselves, but the events that we experience often get in the way of our ability to cultivate that part of us. Let’s uncover your most authentic self and find ways to live in greater integrity.
6. FINDING INDIVIDUALIZED WAYS TO CREATE A FULFILLING LIFE ON YOUR TERMS
This experience is all about you. You are the expert on your own life, and you are the one steering the ship that is your journey. I am here to support you, but I’m not tied to any one way of doing things. There is no right or wrong way, there is only your way. I’m here to help you find it. Together.
