In our first session, my primary goal is to provide a safe, nonjudgmental, and compassionate space for you to share your story. Through empathic communication and trauma-informed approaches, I will get to learn more about your goals for therapy and see if we are a good fit to partner together in your healing journey. Together, we will work to uncover the roots of your anxiety, depression, interpersonal conflict, and maladaptive patterns that do not serve your authentic self. Through the lens of past experiences and relationships, we better understand current issues. It is by establishing a trusting relationship with you that I can hold space for you to tolerate difficult emotions and move through them to find meaning and change where necessary. By integrating talk therapy, mindfulness, and movement, we will collaborate to develop your self-awareness, identify barriers to growth, and establish healthy coping strategies that encourage joy and honor your dignity, culture, and lived experience.
