Working with Individuals
“The world breaks everyone and afterward many are strong at the broken places.”
From time to time, we can feel overwhelmed, anxious, or depressed, or we’re just not happy with the way things are going in our lives, work or relationships.
Sometimes we need to talk to someone who is not a friend and not family, but someone who we feel comfortable with and who can help us get unstuck and live life more fully.
I work with people with:
- Relationship difficulties
- Anger issues
Together, we can create a supportive and safe place to address your concerns and ways of being in this world that are distressing to you. In our work together, I help you discover your strengths and ability to be compassionate with your self and others, confident, and accepting, as well as helping you do more of what you’d like to do in your life. You deserve to be happier.
Internal Family Systems (IFS) guides my work. IFS is an effective model that holds the belief that no matter what we’ve been through, there is a part of us that I call the Wise Self. Other people call it their True Self, their Sun or, just Self. Using the IFS lens, the work in therapy is about empowering your Wise Self so you can be in this world the way you want to be.
I also draw on the the idea of self-compassion. If you’re interested to find out how self-compassionate you are, you can take this test by Kristen Neff of Self-Compassion.org here: Self Compassion Test (Test copyrighted by Kristin Neff Associate Professor of Human Development and Culture, Educational Psychology Department, University of Texas at Austin.)
