Support for Individuals

BRINGING THE ART OF LISTENING, AND UNDERSTANDING TO YOUR LIFE.

Today you are one step closer to being further empowered on an encouraging path to growth and well-being.

Do you have a need to be genuinely heard with understanding, non-judgment, acceptance, and empathy?

Did you know poor listening and not being heard is a leading cause of misunderstandings, repression of one’s true self and their resulting inner turmoil and outer conflicts?

Are you struggling with an issue that you would like support in exploring and healing?

Do you hope to find a compassionate and inquisitive ally whom you resonate with that can help?

I imagine that you want nothing more than to be heard and seen, feel whole instead of fragmented, get some relief, and feel better. I am also imagining you want to experience clarity and peace, connect to authenticity and presence and feel safe.

When crisis or problems arise in our lives, we are often challenged to stay open to what is happening long enough to acquire the direction and guidance that we need to heal. We are also often challenged in letting go of old dynamics and patterns that might be perpetuating the issues in our lives that we find troubling. I would like to help you with that challenge.

I am deeply inspired by people who take the steps to show up, be heard, and be honest with themselves about where they are at in the moment and in their life. I thrive on respecting boundaries, being present with a client’s struggles, disconnection and contraction and in witnessing a client’s willingness to open and be vulnerable. I LOVE assisting people to help themselves see their problems and challenges as great opportunities and catalysts for growth, connection and loving evolution.

As your therapist, I will do my part to help you become the healer of your wounds. I will help you better understand and resolve challenges in your life. I will help you experience a life more fulfilling and meaningful. I will help you bring clarity to your confusion, and inspiration to the ever evolving and morphing process that makes up a full life.

Listening and being heard is a pathway to beauty. The quality of listening is the key to hearing what people care about. Listening is seeing the world in another person’s perspective. Through listening and being heard, beats of disconnection can come back in sync within ourselves and with each other. Listening is fundamental to dialogue and dialogue is a prerequisite to change. I believe listening to people can transform lives. The desperation to be heard causes people to act out.

Listening restores relationships. Listening weaves the fragmented parts of ourselves back to wholeness. When we listen we can not help but love. When we are heard it is affirmation of acceptance and that we are O.K. A renewed sense of empowerment arises as who we are is allowed the space to be known.

If you’re looking to be authentically heard and / or looking for support, guidance and clarity through a challenging situation, healing a wound, or you’re just ready to move in a new direction in your life, I look forward to working with you to achieve your goals.
