Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Having had the privilege to talk with people from different walks of life, I continue to feel re-invigorated by these conversations daily. I believe that individuals are far greater than the problems that can overshadow their lives, and listening from that place of knowing has the potential to invoke a clarifying perspective for the narrator. I look forward to hearing your story, and am committed to learning about the history of your values and hopes, and how they inform your dreams and intentions for the future. I work from a Narrative lens, and find that it offers a paradigm shift from the medical model, which can often leave people feeling powerless over their diagnoses. This change in perspective is made possible by narrative's foundational premise that separates people from their problems rather than ascribing labels that can be shaming. As I get to know my clients, I listen for their values and dreams, which have more often than not been cast aside from consciousness by generalized labels and normative ways of evaluating and measuring the self. I find that there is a world of possibility that lives in people's histories and life experiences. My intention is to attend to multi-faceted conversations that allow people to tell their stories, thereby expanding the way they see themselves and clarifying both what they stand for and how they choose to navigate through the world.

Many of my clients struggle with anxiety issues including racing thoughts, social anxiety and panic attacks. I also support individuals who have experienced traumatic events and are struggling with distressing and intrusive memories.
