There is nothing wrong with you. We all have wounds and scars from our childhood. Left unexamined, we unknowingly follow narratives learned from our family of origin and the society and culture in which we grew up. Oftentimes themes related to beliefs, fears, and wishes from our early attachment relationships show up in our present interactions with others.
Therapy is not intended to pathologize who you are or your behaviors. There is nothing wrong with you. Therapy is a space where I foster the personal growth of each individual to heal these wounds. I believe that within each of us lives our true essence, an internal sense of wisdom that has always known what we need for balance. When left unexamined, our inner sense of self is obscured by stories from others of expectations they have for us and ideas of what we should and/or shouldn’t do.
Through the therapeutic relationship, we will work together to understand the messages you have heard throughout your life. Together we will reconnect with your resilient and innate self and allow space for you to thrive. While I may not have experienced all the life moments you have, I will strive to meet you where you are to guide you to live the life that you volitionally choose instead of following the narratives of others.
Your vision will become clear only when you can look into your heart. Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes. – Carl Jung
