“It’s not what you look at that matters. It’s what you see.” -Henry David Thoreau
I am invested in helping you create and maintain a positive relationship with yourself. Our work together will teach you how to stop beating yourself up with negative, attacking self talk, and form a practice of radical self compassion, especially in the face of perceived imperfections and making mistakes. Individual therapy will also help you identify recurring themes and long standing patterns in your life. This allows for a better understanding of yourself and your interpersonal dynamics, and enables you to find creative solutions to what previously seemed to be stuck. With renewed compassion for yourself in relationship with loved ones, we will explore how to hold appropriate boundaries with others, how to speak up for yourself with both strength and tenderness, how to repair when things veer off course, and how to listen in a way that your partner feels heard and understood.
