“…feelings like disappointment, embarrassment, irritation, resentment, anger, jealousy, and fear, instead of being bad news, are actually very clear moments that teach us where it is that we’re holding back. They teach us to perk up and lean in when we feel we’d rather collapse and back away. They’re like messengers that show us, with terrifying clarity, exactly where we’re stuck. This very moment is the perfect teacher, and, lucky for us, it’s with us wherever we are.”
― Pema Chödrön
Are you feeling stuck, fatigued, anxious, unmotivated, over-extending yourself or having problems in your connections with others? So often, we have the ability to give tenderness and compassion to others, but we rarely think to give it back to ourselves. I can help support your efforts to find relief from these psychological dilemmas by opening up possibilities and providing tools that get you back in touch with your own natural resources so that you move toward more hope and vitality.
It is my belief that personal growth and development is a product of learning something new about yourself, your capabilities and your connections to others. Learning is not just an achievement of independent effort, but one of social collaboration. I will walk along side you as you map new territories that tap into your inner voices of protest and resilience, voices that have been overlooked. Taking this journey is an important step towards giving compassion back to ourselves and trusting that we are worthy of connecting to who we really are and deserve to live more fully.
