"the wound is the place where the light enters you."
many of our deepest hurts occur in the context of relationships, and likewise are healed in a relational context. at its core, therapy is about building a relationship that creates space for exploration, insight, healing, and growth. that is why my practice is deeply relational, and tailored to the individual and diverse needs of each client.
therapy is less about solving problems and more about developing an authentic, meaningful life. though many people come to therapy hoping to change troublesome aspects of themselves, they often find that self-acceptance is a necessary first step. truly accepting ourselves makes it easier to accept others, and this shift leads to more fulfilling relationships and a more joyful life.
"it takes courage to grow up and become who you truly are."
"all you need is already within you, only you must approach yourself with reverence and love."
my approach emphasizes increased self-awareness and development of insight, with particular attention to cultivating mindfulness and self-compassion. though therapy often does shift how we relate to others, it focuses more on shifting the way we relate to our self.
