“We are programmed to fear change, to resist it, and to suffer amidst it. But change presents the opportunity for expansion if we let it in.”

Healing is show, not tell.

Our brains and bodies are always working toward one common goal; to protect us from danger, what an incredibly loving and compassionate system we have. Through our lived experiences, families we grow up in, and communities we are surrounded by, our system finds the best ways to keep us safe and sometimes, this means disconnecting from our highest self to survive the present.

It is very common for us to develop unhelpful or even harsh thoughts and feelings about ourselves, we may see our dysregulation show up in our behaviors, sometimes when we least expect it, but every behavior is meeting an unmet need.

Often, we feel like we are the only one experiencing “the thing” and close ourselves off from connection in efforts to protect ourselves from shame or vulnerability, which makes sense!

My goal is to ensure each session meets the need of you, your child, and your family by cultivating a brave space, a space for connection, nurturing, reflection, and healing. As we utilize talk therapy, I like to integrate other forms of healing such as drawing, writing, movement, play, etc.

You are not alone and I am thankful that you are here. I see you.
