I believe every human is in a continual process of becoming – and that through relationship with our own awareness we gain power over our challenges to then create the kind of life, relationships and way of being we want for ourselves. I am passionate about helping people live more effective and fulfilled lives.
I work with clients through a collaborative inquiry process to access their emotional intelligence, strengths and resources in support of realistic solutions and lasting change. For example, professional or academic advancement, improved intimate, family or social relationships, managed stress, stronger coping skills, navigating cultural, societal or religious pressures, making peace with past traumatic experiences, fears or insecurities and ending destructive habits and reoccurring patterns.
Lasting change and wellbeing come from both the therapeutic process as well as individual time spent practicing the concepts gained in session.
I take a stand as a narrative therapy practitioner regarding pathology and the overuse of hasty diagnosis which have long term harmful effects on people when the mental health concern may be situational in nature and temporary in duration.
Sometimes as humans we fall subject to the social discourses of culture, media, family and core beliefs that may have served us well at some point in our lives but are no longer healthy or helpful at this point in the journey.
