PSYCHOTHERAPY & COUNSELING – $125
The counseling journey is an intrinsically creative process of discovery enabling one access, ultimately, to one’s own interior therapist as well as to one’s own inner healing intelligence. Awakening to our authentic self is like tending to a garden. We have to nourish it, consciously and consistently. Engaging in a sincere psychotherapeutic process is akin to preparing fertile ground within one’s own being. In this way, I am like a farmer that assists you with weeding out whatever may be emotionally or cognitively depleting your vital life energy. At the same time, I will help you discover other mechanisms which are supportive to your healing and growth.
The terrains of the human mind and heart can oftentimes seem complex or formidable but within these spheres are seeds that, once germinated, help you mend previous hurts or traumas, help you to awaken to your immediate moments, and help you to emerge into your future potentialities. Within the sacrosanct context of our counseling alliance my role is to provide an attentive, stabilizing presence as we explore together cohesive pathways back to your inner truths.
Although trained in diagnosing mental health disorders I deemphasize framing you within conventional categories of dysfunction. Instead, we will work upon transmuting adverse states of psychological distress into trajectories of mental and emotional wellness. Oftentimes, individualized feelings of anxiety, depression, overwhelming emotions, or mood swings are indicative of deeper yearnings for lasting personal transformation or genuine interconnectedness and inclusivity with others.
While remaining tethered to evidence based clinical practices my orientation can be described as a transpersonal (or psychospiritual) approach to therapy. During sessions, I often interweave perspectives from ancient wisdom traditions and offer mindfulness-based strategies for your treatment plan. If you’ve ever experienced heightened states of consciousness, unitive feelings of connection, or episodes of expanded awareness (events which are sometimes misinterpreted as psychological dysfunction) you are warmly invited to process these events with me during our appointments together having the reassurance of knowing that you will not be judged or pathologized. During our sessions, whatever your counseling needs may be, you can expect a safe and confidential platform to explore viable ways of uncovering, integrating, and sustaining the most optimal version of you.
