WHAT MAKES A CREATIVE HUMAN?
Creativity is an ability inherent to all humans. Whether your education is rooted in fine art or you you've spent your years navigating the waters of the corporate world, within you lies the capacity to create a life that fulfills the deepest parts of your soul. Together we will explore old ideas about personal limitations and the origin of negative self views that inhibit your growth potential. Together we will reauthor your story and cultivate new pathways to reach your goals. When we foster the creative parts of ourselves, we plunge into our ability to transcend. What I am describing is not magic; it is a set of tools to help you become the person you want to be; the person you are truly. Through perspective shifting techniques, gentle inquiry and self exploration I will show you how to make the magical possible.
I take an integrative and human centered approach to my work with clients. Rooted in Narrative, Postmodern and Social Justice ideologies, I will begin our work with gentle curiosity about the world that shaped you and what story you have carried about yourself throughout your life. This is where the deconstruction of old ideas about self and the reauthoring of new life happens. Uncovering these parts of ourselves, old wounds and old ideas that may have at one time protected us from unsafe people and places, can be painful for some and will take time and willingness to walk through. Know that I will be with you every step of the way. We can set this pace together. There is no rule for how slowly or quickly our work is done. From here, I prefer to work with a combination of tools based interventions, ranging from Somatic breathing techniques for emotional regulation to mindfulness and awareness based CBT practices. Each client will have a very different treatment plan designed for their specific needs based on the goals that they come into session with. My role is to help coauthor this experience as you discover your own transformation and create the life you've been seeking.

Most of us have some discomfort around talking about money. From not having enough to having too much, shame and anxiety often surround the subject despite it being such a necessary part of our every day lives. How do we ask for more money without feeling needy? How do we get what we need without conveying the deep fear we hold around money? Learn to cultivate confidence and worth around negotiations. Embody an abundance mindset and shed beliefs that hold you back from your money goals.
