Being seen and heard is so important. I am a great listener, and no topic is too sensitive for me to hear about. I want to hear what you have to tell me; let me be a witness to your life. I’m a present, safe person for you to confide in. Then, we can work through some strategies to help you change.
The first part of change is to understand the themes and patterns of one’s life. Why do you do the things you do? I’ll help you answer those questions. Knowing your own patterns (why you do the things you do) can be very empowering. You can feel like you aren’t a bad person or diseased in some way, but in fact, are a normal human being with some hardships that need to be worked out. Like getting knots out of your neck in a deep massage, I’ll help you work out the kinks and set you on the path to well-being.
I’m not the only one who gets cranky when I don’t practice good self-care. You do, too! You may not realize it, though. Furthermore, most people don’t really even understand what good self-care even is. However, good self care is connected to mental wellness. When we do not take care of ourselves, we get depleted, and then we have a hard time connecting to positive feelings of well-being because we feel tired and cranky. An important part of my work with clients is helping them see ways to nurture themselves, whether that’s through setting boundaries with others, using tools from the sciences of yoga and Ayurveda, or setting aside time for themselves to have fun.
