I welcome whoever walks in through the door. I prefer working with highly functional people. My ideal client is interested in self-growth and personal development.
You are living a good life and are interested in what makes you tick, you are intrigued by the working of your own psyche and may even be interested in what lies beyond the realm of body-heart-mind. You are interested in investigating the soul/spirit and question what current scientific thinking is unable to fathom. You may have a holistic perspective and want to broaden your range of acceptance and compassion. You are looking for ways to live in alignment with your higher values and your goals are to live with integrity, love, peace and joy.
You are aware and have a full life, but still find something missing. You may be feeling stuck in certain areas of your life. Or outwardly you might seem to be okay, but inwardly you might feel empty, lacking in direction and focus. You may have some PTSD symptoms or suffer from occasional depression and/or anxiety, or find yourself in a challenging relationship, or be looking for a renewed purpose and meaning in life. You are open to looking at your symptoms as a gateway to go deeper to a place of greater self-acceptance and nurturing. You are willing to work on dropping old patterns that do not serve you anymore. You want to change and even transform yourself and need support and guidance with that. You need the therapist to see your blind spots and reflect those back so you can proceed further in a more efficacious way.
You would benefit by gaining a better understanding and clarity of your inner functioning, of what behavior and attitudes you learnt where, and possibly glimpses of what lies beyond your conditioning. You may benefit in terms of being able to create the life that you want and to accept what cannot be changed eg. other people in your life! However as you change your own attitudes and behaviors you could find that others respond to you differently too.
Who am I? I am an old soul, currently in this human journey with you. I play the role of a female therapist of color with a double Master’s degree, who loves to enable people to become more aware of themselves in a loving and compassionate way.
Why do I practice psychotherapy? Because I am passionate about self-awareness and about enabling people to live from their core of love, peace and joy.
How do I do it? Mostly intuitively- which involves being aware of my own responses and reactions to what is present in the room, holding space with awareness and compassion, being flexible and tuned into my clients’ feelings and being able to reflect back what I observe, as well as being creative in finding interventions and dropping what does not seem to work.
I am the best person for the job because I am stoked by my work. I think it is a privilege to get to know people at such an intimate level, and to accompany you on your journey of becoming better acquainted with your inner dynamics and to be non-judgmental of whatever might emerge. I have done years and years of self-work, both through psychotherapy and through meditation and hence I am best suited to do this form of work.
