I aim to provide and hold a safe, non-judgmental environment in which you can express yourself freely.
Each person is different. Therefore, sessions are not the same following the first appointment, which is usually the 'what brought you here'. We go from there.
What to expect? The first appointment is the consultation, we will sit, maybe have some tea (virtually, we can still enjoy a cup of tea together as we talk).
Here, I will gather information and history in order to determine what your individual needs are.
If wanted, sessions can become regular depending on the individuals needs.
I usually do bi-weekly.
As stated in my profile I'm a Holistic Therapist with a Masters in Clinical Mental Health from Lesley University. I also have a masters from Dartmouth College and currently pursuing my PSY.D at Boston Graduate School of Psychoanalysis.
I’m patient centered and Rogerian focused, Holistically trained meaning, as stated before, but worth repeating, I’m all about working with individual as a whole and letting you lead the session. We go where you want to go. It’s all about connecting energetically (I think we can still attain this virtually) and being able to be present and aid you therapeutically. We can also work on self-modulating techniques like meditations or learning to give your body signals to self-regulate.
I also bring (if that is something you are interested in) a spiritual, more ancestral medicine to guide our sessions and can work with you in this manner. This can include shadow work that helps provide deeper insight. This can be working within the realm of addressing and aiding individuals to work through generational and ancestral trauma, along with analyzing dreams, all of which can lead to intense shadow work. In looking into the more unconscious and repetitive cycles at play in our lives, we can aid you in breaking any unhealthy cycling that maybe occurring, through this work, you get to the root of the problem.
Speaking of roots! I can also provide some tea recipes for more herbal remedies, if that is something of interested in.
Looking forward to meeting and working with you!
