Emotion Focused Individual Therapy
Creating a Compassionate Storyline
Therapy can offer a safe space in which to grow and challenge oneself. I aim to create a secure and trusted connection with my clients so they feel able to look deeply within. Working together, I can help you discover unconscious thoughts, beliefs and emotions, and slowly nurture greater awareness and acceptance of the core aspects of yourself.
We all have an inner narrative of who we are, shaped by crucial events in our life, that defines who we are. I engage you in creating a deeper understanding of your own narrative:
- What stories do you tell yourself that define your assets and deficits?
- What stories shape how you see yourself in relationship to others?
- How did these stories come to be and how do they limit you?
We work together to build and embody a new, more compassionate storyline. This journey to a deeper connection to Self can at times be frightening and difficult. Yet fear can be our greatest ally, signaling for us to explore and go deeper. I will compassionately walk with you during these times, while you begin to author a future free from the old stories that keep you from realizing that you are much more than you know.
My approach to individual therapy is emotion-focused and grounded in attachment theory. I draw on internal family systems and a variety of mindfulness practices.
I can help with:
- Grief and loss
- Low self-esteem
- Life transitions
- Work-life balance
- Relationship stress
- Sexual dysfunction
- Internet addictions
- Bi-polar disorder
I also offer psychedelic integration sessions for individuals working to address PTSD and other trauma impacts through their own psychedelic use. Please contact me to learn more.
