About Me

You've been telling yourself a story through your thoughts for as long as you've been speaking a language. Different life experiences significantly impact the narrative of these stories, and your body reacts to and remembers each one. The first step to changing the narrative is to realize you are not your thoughts. Taking a more observational role with your mind is crucial to mental health. The next step is to sort through these life experiences. Memories hold valuable information, but when a memory begins to maladaptively define how you see yourself, others, or the world, it needs to be challenged and rightfully placed in the past. Beliefs generated from certain memories may be blocking your true self or your ability to grow. Perhaps they're memories from a past relationship you've let define you. They may be memories of a profoundly disturbing event, or of leaving a deeply ingrained religion, both of which can shake our sense of self and how we define our purpose in life. Often, a chronically low mood can impact how we see ourselves; conversely, heightened anxiety can create associative memories within our bodies. If you are ready to sort through memories to find these blocking beliefs, bring them to awareness in a way that promotes healing and growth, and take on a more observational role in your mind, we are a good fit.
