A Wholeness Approach
Therapy solutions often focus on a single treatment modality. They may address only thinking or behavior, or solely prescribe medications that might be questionably safe or effective. Life often does not improve much or at all and can leave people feeling frustrated or disappointed.
My humanistic-existential and multicultural approach fills this gap. We will explore the wholeness of who you are and your life story, the environments in which you live and work, and your dreams. My toolbox includes embodiment and mindfulness integrated with emotionally focused, cognitive-behavioral, and narrative therapies, among others. This diversity allows us to meet your immediate needs and stay on course toward your goals. Our work is navigated by the Honor Your Way 5-H Guide to Emotional-Relational Health.
The 5-Hs will guide your journey of growth to care for your heart, mind, body, and spirit. You will unlearn patterns of thought and behaviors that disrupt your life and relationships. You will learn to forgive and love yourself so that you can forgive and love others better. Matured wisdom from your past, insight of your present, and authenticity will empower you to honor your way forward.
Holding Your Heart
You will learn to acknowledge and tend to all of your emotions. Self-love will help you release unresolved grief, guilt, shame, and other inner pain. You will slow your central nervous down and regulate your emotions.
Hearing Your Mind
You will begin to speak your truth and soften distorted echoes in your mind. You will see your thoughts, beliefs, and perceptions with fresh meanings.
Healing Your Body
You will learn to connect with your body for physical health and release of suppressed emotional energy. Your motivation will improve as you feel better and carry less emotional weight.
Harmonizing Your Spirit
Your intentions will begin to harmonize with your values, beliefs, strengths, and dreams. Your harmony becomes an internal wisdom to guide you through your days.
Honoring Your Way
You will begin to forgive and live with dignity no matter what you have come through. You become a beacon of light and integrity as you honor your way forward into the life you dream of!
