How is your heart and your spirit these days, with all that is and has been happening? Where are you at, right now, in this moment? If you’re a sensitive, how is your sensitive nature holding the vast complexities of these times?
We are in many similar and different ways, grieving, holding tight to or letting go of illusions of safety, and control. It is an intense and for many, a lonely and overwhelming time, and perhaps also a time for deep reflection. It may feel like a time of self-protection, and it is also possible to be more grounded, and more in connection with ourselves and others.
It is possible to heal through painful and disconnecting experiences, grow your awareness of and compassion for yourself, and connect with your internal strength, resources, goodness, aliveness. It is perfectly ok to heal at the pace your existence is ready for.
Humans are wired for healing, and our brains and nervous systems have an amazing ability to create new neural pathways, new ways of being and experiencing. The trauma-informed approach that I use is based in Neuroscience, Attachment theory, based in possibilities for growth and human resiliency, as well as heart-centered compassion and acceptance.
"Ever since happiness heard your name, it has been running through the streets trying to find you". ~ Hafez
Do you sometimes feel or wonder if you perceive or feel things more deeply, or in a more nuanced way, than others—emotionally, physically, through your senses . . .
Maybe interactions with others leave you feeling misunderstood or not as connected as you want to be. It could be that you’re just noticing and feeling more, attuned to and affected by subtleties (that maybe don’t feel subtle to you at all). Perhaps you have grown up in an environment where you couldn’t be who you are, and you want a different way of living, being.
Maybe you’re seeking a space where you can access therapy without having to leave any parts of your identity at the door—a therapeutic environment where you can show up as all of who you are.
I specialize in working with sensitive and highly sensitive people and/or other neurodivergent folks; immigrants; queer, trans, and non-binary people; bicultural people; QTBIPOC; artists; social justice activists; and others who experience their sense of self most fully outside of norms.
In an environment of openness, acceptance and non-judgment, we can work together to cultivate and expand your self-awareness and sense of safety and connection, a feeling of increasing space and ease for you to be you.
