I will be curious about your experiences and narratives that shape how you come to think and act the way you do now, which got you stuck. I will be inviting you to discover more loving ways you can relate with yourself, and with others. I believe in your experiences are your best teacher.
You can get yourself unstuck when you learn to listen to yourself more clearly, and treat yourself with more kindness.
When working with couples and families, I help each person find some clarity within yourselves, and between each other, so you can create a more authentic interactions in the long run. It may be hard initially to become your own person, but in the long run, you can enjoy more satisfaction and freedom to be yourself in the relationships that matter to you.
When you can be true to yourself, you can then be true to one another.
As a Clinical Supervisor and Trainer, I am interested in the personhood of the clinician or therapist. I believe that much of what we do stems from who we are. And we are, first and foremost, human beings. Then only we put on our professional selves. And through our professional work, we are enriched and inspired by our clients, who also challenge us to live out what we preach or say to them! Whether in teaching assessment or therapy skills, my emphasis is on how we can use ourselves more fully to connect with our clients, in their complexities and contexts.
The more we understand our own layers, the more we can appreciate, rather than pathologize, the full spectrum of human experiences and diversities.
