Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Originally from Oregon, I lived in New York City for many years as a performing artist and body worker. My background as an actor and performer gives me a certain knack for working with those who have a creative bent. I have personal experience with the particular kinds of longings that come with artistic striving, but the reality is that my clients have a wide variety of careers, interests, and life stressors. I have lived a lot, and have a wide variety of interests. I respect others' experiences and use quite a bit of humor in our sessions. You can expect me to be honest, open, and straight-forward with my feedback and insights. I have a warm, engaging style and am genuinely interested in my clients. I ask a lot of questions to help you see your underlying belief structures and more deeply know your own mind. Using mindfulness, we attend to what is right here, right now. Learning more about what you do and how you do it helps you make choices about how you want to be in the world. You already have everything you need to live a fulfilling and joyous life. By integrating your thinking, feeling, and sensing we cultivate your innate gifts and respectfully let go of old habits so you can live more fully. We approach all of this with generosity, humor, and an openness to whatever we uncover. Paying attention to our moment-to-moment experience creates potential for transformation. Steady awareness, like a stream of water, reshapes even the most unyielding landscape. What must also be included in some form is that our lives are composed of the stories of our ancestry... which are housed within cultures and institutions that shape us in a multitude of ways. Including these elements help us make sense of our personal challenges within larger systems of power, privilege, & oppression. annahowlandpsychotherapy.com
