Long-lasting changes are difficult if we ignore the root issue, which can include previous trauma or neglect, challenging relationships with caregivers, negative thought forms, generational patterns, etc. All of this is set in the larger context of systems of oppression in which we are all indoctrinated (capitalism, racism, patriarchy, homo/transphobia, ableism, etc.).
While it is important to explore the root of the issue, it is also important to continue building skills to achieve the goals set in our work together.
As a therapist and coach, rather than merely listen, I engage in my client's process by offering different perspectives to consider. In our work together, I provide education and skill building to process trauma, unearth toxic belief systems, and empower clients to make internal shifts towards wholeness.
In order to serve more people, I only provide short term therapy.
The first step is to learn my Psychological Boundaries Framework
so we are on the same page of how to work together.
If my Framework works for you, then you either:
Short term work puts the responsibility on you to integrate the Framework, rather than relying on therapy.
If you need an intentional space to start the internal transformation with the support of other people, consider signing up for my newsletter, where I announce opportunities to gather, learn, and grow in community.
