OUR THERAPEUTIC STYLE AND COLLABORATION
In our work together, we will process your experiences with a lens of compassion, and start to identify patterns and thoughts that are no longer working for you. Our goals will be identified by you, and we will work in a structured way to create the changes you are seeking. I listen without judgment, and ask questions to illuminate your unconscious beliefs and desires. We may utilize somatic experiencing, meditative reflections, art therapy journaling, breathwork, cognitive behavioral questioning, intentional goal setting, and positive self-talk to help ground you in your worth, value and desirability.
I am grateful to have had the opportunity to work with my amazing clients online, and I have experienced how powerful this medium can be. After listening to my diverse range of clients in Europe, North America, Africa, and the Middle East, and learning what truly works for them, I have designed a comprehensive online support system to facilitate this connection. I believe therapy and holistic support can evolve with the rest of our lives. Let's reconnect you to your body and your purpose.
