I hope for them to truly feel seen and heard. I’d like for us to take sometime to build the rapport and a positive alliance. Once we have established the fit, our journey can be that much more rich and fulfilling.
Despite an abundance of information and awareness out there, we still face so many struggles alone. The feeling of being stuck and experience of isolation can certainly be very crippling. I’d like to begin by expressing that therapy can be one of the first corrective emotional experiences in your life. Where you’d have someone who earnestly wants to understand and support you. You will be in a space where you get to make sense of your life, go at your own pace, be more gentle with yourself and equip yourself with skills that help you navigate life. There is a lot to be gained from investing in yourself.
I treasure the learning that - we can experience an incredible amount of trauma, loss, overall suffering and not only continue to exist, but continue to find meaning and even joy in our lives. It’s helped me to re-frame my own trauma in a more helpful way and also made me less afraid of what my future may hold - recognizing that we can tolerate much, much more than we think we can and still create a fulfilling life.
I work with adults (20 - 45 years) in individual therapy on childhood trauma, emotional neglect, grief, tolerating loneliness, surviving emotional abuse, relationships, anxiety management, C-PTSD, choosing emotionally healthy partners, attachment styles, family conflict, depression and a lot more.
The approach to therapy is : Integrative, Trauma informed, Culturally sensitive, Person centered, Attachment based and Somatic. Types of therapy I practice are Acceptance & Commitment therapy, mindfulness based cognitive behavioral therapy, narrative therapy & internal family systems model.
I do my own research, keep myself updated on what is safe and affirmative. I ask questions/ check in to learn more about what is supportive and helpful for them within the sessions. I ask for feedback on how they’d like me to show up, willingly negotiate on what approaches work and continue to value their own judgement on what feels most supportive and safe to them.
The Quote Zarana Resonates With
We think that the point is to pass the test or overcome the problem, but the truth is that things don't really get solved. They come together and they fall apart. Then they come together again and fall apart again. Its just like that. The healing comes from letting there be room for all of this to happen: room for grief, for relief, for misery, for joy.
