I deeply believe that part of being human is to experience a wide range of emotions: sadness, anger, rage, hope, joy, bewilderment. The rainbow of our feelings contains many different colors and hues. However, sometimes, we seem to only be able to exist in one color spectrum. Our sadness is so deep that we feel we are drowning and our despair so profound, we can't imagine to ever feel hope again. Yet we can utilize the intensity of this inner experience towards deeper self exploration and integration. This, in fact, is an excellent time to seek therapy!
I strive to provide my clients with deep, compassionate listening and encourage them to bring their loving attention to those feelings, emotions and urges that are sometimes too painful to witness on your own. Together we turn our collective attention inward and allow what's there to emerge, to be held and to be integrated.
I believe that this practice of learning how to separate oneself from one's emotional experience without disowning what one is experiencing or getting swept away by its intensity allows us to feel more present and alive in all aspects of our lives. It enables us to feel profound sadness without also getting depressed, experience fear without necessarily becoming anxious, give ourselves to rage without the need to also become violent.
In addition to holding a gentle, loving space for clients to venture into the depth of one's psyche, I also utilize the creative process to further the process of self exploration and healing. For over 10 years now I have witnessed time and again how art making allowed people of all ages and from all walks of life to find relief from stress, gain insight and deeper understanding of their own inner landscape, and express that which they often did not have words for.
