Pearl Healing’s mission is empowering people to be present and thrive in their lives.
I began this journey as an activist. What I found is in this world that is filled with messages we’re supposed to swallow whole and regurgitate as some pleasing, generic representation of who we “should” be radical commitment to finding your authenticity and loving the gorgeous – sometimes messy – truth of who you are is the most powerful form of activism.
The process of individual therapy is impossible to define within a generalized one-size-fits-all paragraph. There’s a really simple reason for that. Individual therapy with me is a collaboration between therapist and client. I may be the expert in psychotherapy, but YOU are the expert on yourself. There is no other you out there – no you who has experienced what you’ve experienced the exact way that you experienced it. So the relationship is indefinable with only one piece of the two-pieced puzzle.
What I can give you a feel for is the way that I work. The first piece of 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 – to feel at peace with your body, mind, spirit, sexuality, spirituality and the world again… or for the first time.
Once we have that piece, some of the modalities that can help us meet those goals are listed below. Though I could be accused of being a bit of a quirky personality, when it comes to 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.
Therapy is my activism. I am passionate about serving as a gender specialist and working with survivors of sexual trauma. I have specialized training in these areas. However, if you don’t fit either label yet what you hear resonates with you I invite you to contact me for a free 30-minute consultation to chat about how I can help.
It is an intrinsic human right to feel safe within the confines of one’s own body
