“The curious paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am, then I can change” – Carl Rogers
When life gets difficult, having compassion for our stories and the challenges we’ve overcome to be here today can help us get unstuck.
Therapy is a place for you to unpack some of the weight of day-to-day life in a safe space. To experience a mirror of compassion so that you may love yourself into the change and life you deserve. As a therapist, my mission is to help you grow in self-compassion, self-esteem and self-understanding. My hope is to empower you to find your own autonomous solutions to life’s challenges while supporting your mental health.
My approach is culturally sensitive, trauma informed and LGBTQ+ affirming. I take a holistic and integrative lens with an understanding of impacts of intergenerational and relational trauma, family systems, and attachment-based issues on present day functioning. We will start where you are comfortable, with small achievable goals, and work through issues together as they arise. I am here to provide an empathetic and non-judgmental space to support you as you to walk your own path.
If you are curious about therapy or interested in working with me at Sunnyside Healing Arts, I encourage you to reach out for a consultation. You can discuss what brings you to therapy, whether we might be a good fit and other expectations, fees and scheduling.
