Parker Palmer writes, "The soul speaks its truth only under quiet, inviting, and trustworthy conditions". I have created a safe and beautiful space for you to slow down and speak your courageous truth in a soulful, authentic way. My focus is to, with empathy, work with you in healing past wounds and destructive narratives. A core human desire is to be seen and known within relationship, and it is for this reason that I believe the relationship that is built between the client and the therapist can be a launching point for healing.
As a guide around soul care (which is another way of saying psychotherapy. Psycho (Soul) Therapy (Care)) , I will curate space, bringing together the experiences in your life as a collection. Life is complex and full of suffering. So often our culture tells us to cut off, push away, or move on from our grief. More than ever, space is needed to bring to the surface what needs to or is told to, go underground. To process this complexity together, there may be talking, there may be silence, there may be rituals of creative expression, simple movement, or writing. This is an expression and an experience we will create together.
To carve out this space for yourself is important, necessary, and courageous. I look forward to connecting with you. If this is the type of work and care for yourself you are longing for, please set up an appointment or email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org or call me at 206-713-8950.
Welcome to my practice.
It is my passion to blend ancient philosophies of yoga and wellness with modern anatomy, neurobiology, and trauma research. As we journey thorough life, our life imprints upon us. This happens naturally within the body via the senses and encodes into the body's memory, the nervous system. This sometimes creates habitual holding patterns in the body or mind and/or distorted views of reality based of prior experiences; especially if they were overwhelming, scary, or unpleasant. This is a normal reaction to an abnormal situation. By observing the stories we are telling ourselves to be true, we can create change in how we perceive the world around us.
Recently, the #metoo movement has brought light on the darkness of sexual assault in this world. Anxiety, depression, isolation, fearfulness, and pain are just a few associated symptoms. Our memories live in our mind, as well as the body. Sometimes, talk therapy alone is not enough. If this you, you do not need to face this alone. Along with psychotherapy, I off therapeutic yoga. Modern research has shown a direct link to the clinical effectiveness of incorporating mindfulness and yoga within a therapeutic framework. This unique approach can help decrease chronic pain, PTSD symptoms, and rebalance the nervous system.
I am a licensed Mental Health Counselor Associate in the state of Washington and received my Master of the Arts degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Antioch University here in Seattle. Inspired by the depth of clinical research and my own curiosity, in 2015 I completed my yoga teacher training through a Yoga Alliance approved school and have since been certified in Yin and Restorative yoga.
