Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I welcome you to come as you are. When we collaborate in the healing process, we’ll be tuning in to and nurturing your unique strengths--your creative spirit, your essential wisdom, and your resilience--as the basis for navigating the real challenges and struggles you face. I offer you a safe space for exploring and more deeply understanding your experience of vulnerability, conflict, or stuckness. Throughout the healing process, I’ll help you to hold yourself with compassion and validation, to become empowered to find your voice, and to practice new communication and coping skills. From a wider lens, I’ll help you to see new choices for change that are both practical and meaningful, and that more fully align with your core values, sense of purpose, needs, and goals as you move forward into the life you envision for yourself. I bring humility, respect, and genuine interest to our collaboration. My style is down to earth, non-pathologizing, and interactive, with healthy doses of humor. I appreciate you as multi-dimensional--feeling, thinking, physical, spiritual, and social. I welcome diversity and embrace a social justice perspective.
