Psychotherapy The foundation of successful therapy is based on the relationship between client and therapist. I often think of therapy as "relationship practice" where you build new relationship muscles you can take into your life. My goal is that you feel supported and heard as we unpack what needs attention to help you heal.
An analogy I like to use is that of a plant just out of reach of sun light. It will often grow sideways to reach the light. It naturally seeks what it needs to survive and thrive. This is similar to how we adapt to our environment growing up. We may "bend" in order to get love and attention or to protect ourselves. As we get older, the constant bending we have been doing in relationship with others and ourselves may not be the healthiest. When we provide appropriate light and conditions for the plant, it will naturally right itself and grow in alignment. Therapy can help nurture the conditions to help you grow and thrive towards the light. The "light" can be a metaphor for your authentic Self, healthy relationships and communication, boundary setting, or an inner knowing. My hope is to help provide the right conditions for you, so your innate desire for wellbeing and health emerges naturally in our work together.
