If you are struggling through life’s challenges, it can be helpful to engage the company of a skilled listener who can serve as a mirror and a process guide. Finding meaningful support for your healing journey can make a big difference. This includes a safe, non-judgmental space where you can talk through difficulties, experience new possibilities, and to move into desired growth and change. Whether you need help navigating relationships, making sense of difficult emotions, de-stressing, regulating your nervous system, healing old patterns, gaining clarity, or cultivating more peace of mind, I am here to support you. I offer counseling therapy that welcomes you in your uniqueness. My counseling approach is holistic, taking the whole person into consideration. Mental health is an integral part of the whole body, not just a product of what happens in the mind.
Depending on your needs, talk therapy alone may not be enough to access desired results. Incorporating deeper mental-emotional processing, mindfulness-based cognitive practices, parts work, somatic skills, or lifestyle optimization strategies may be helpful. One of the ways that the brain shifts out of old emotional-knowings is through the innate process of memory reconsolidation. Any style of therapy that harnesses this natural capacity can accelerate the potential for growth. Your therapy will be customed-tailored for your unique context, and it will be informed by the underlying principles of how internal change unfolds.
I am a strengths-based, trauma-informed, grief-informed therapist. In addition to addressing problems, it is equally important to develop and expand on one’s own internal resources and desired states of being. My aim is to help you transform what no longer serves you, and to tap into the inner wellspring of healing that already exists inside of you. If you are looking for in-person counseling in San Luis Obispo, or online counseling anywhere in California, I offer a 15-minute phone consultation to explore if this is a good fit for you.
