All men have the stars, but they are not the same things for different people. For some who are travelers, the stars are the guides, for some they are no more than little lights in the sky. For others who are scholars, they are problems. But all these stars are silent. You, you alone- will have the stars, as no one else has them-" The words of Antoine de Saint-Exupery written in the famous children's book The Little Prince, resonates well with the core idea that I hold- we all have our own contexts, our own journey in life, our own story that we live, create and narrate. I support people in narrating these stories and in understanding themselves and their contexts better.
By creating a warm, safe, non-judgemental place, I aim to offer my clients the space for self-exploration, understanding, and working towards acceptance of complex emotions, exploring fears and negative thoughts, difficulties in interpersonal relationships, dealing with the feeling of loneliness and working through feelings of worthlessness, abandonment, Shame, Guilt, and Emptiness.
I work from a trauma-informed, queer affirmative, Intersectional lens. My practice is guided by mindfulness, relaxation, and breathwork exercises, however, I believe that the core of my practice is to be client-centered as I emphasize, "I'm here to support you and guide you in your journey, but you, I believe have the potential to find your way through it.
