Be Present And Thrive.
It is a revolutionary act to exist in a world that has actively tried to suppress your existence.
Therefore, therapy ~ the process by which you regain or find for the first time self-love, freedom from trauma, and inner peace ~ is itself activism.
Therapy Is Activism & Collaboration
I began this journey as an activist. This world is filled with messages we’re supposed to swallow whole and regurgitate as some pleasing, generic representation of who we “should” be.
But some people just aren’t built for that.
Your radical commitment to connecting to your True Core Self and loving the gorgeous ~ sometimes messy ~ truth of who you are is the most powerful form of activism.
Let me say that again. It’s The. Most. Powerful. Activism.
The process of individual therapy is a collaboration between therapist and client. Or, better yet? A process of deep exploration and personal growth facilitated by your relationship to a non-judgmental, supportive other.
Translation: I may be the expert in psychotherapy, but you are the expert on yourself.
The First Step
The first step in our therapeutic journey together is getting on the same page about what you know needs to happen in order for you to feel whole again. Do you struggle to feel at peace with your body, mind, and spirit? Do you need a safe place to process life without someone pathologizing your sexuality or gender?
How can we get you to a place of peace within yourself, within the world again ~ or for the first time?
Though I could be accused of being a bit of a quirky personality (proudly so, I might add), when it comes to your therapy I follow the evidence.
Using the evidence-based treatment modalities that best fit where you are in your process and what type of resolution you’re hoping to achieve helps put you in the driver’s seat of your healing and growth process.
