THERAPY & COMMUNICATION COACHING
Individuals | Couples | Groups
Berkeley, California and Online
There’s so much more to you than you allow others to see.
You’re tired of hiding, making yourself small, and playing it safe, but you’re afraid to be yourself because you don’t want to be rejected.
You have a hard time speaking up for yourself in relationships, so you don’t ask for what you want.
You have a sense of being alone in the world and it’s becoming a constant ache.
Imagine if these words described the life you’re living:
Authentic: You feel like you’re the real you. You drop the mask and trust that who you are is enough.
Empowered: You know what you want and have the confidence to go for it.
Connected: You have the communication skills and self-awareness it takes to create and sustain meaningful, mutual relationships that nourish you.
All of this is possible for you, and I’m devoted to helping you get there. I’m here to help you reclaim your life: your relationships, your passions, your creativity, your knowing.
Communication is one of the keys to fulfilling relationships, and fulfilling relationships are foundational to a meaningful life. Two other keys are mindfulness and self-compassion.
My work integrates all three.
Here’s how it works:
As you get in touch with your feelings and learn how to accept them, they become signals to your needs. As you identify and embrace your needs, you gain clarity about what direction you want to go in and what you need to get there. Fear, self-doubt, and self-criticism are the most common obstacles to this process, but they get to come along for the ride. This isn’t about overriding, pushing through, or defeating your fear. This is about wholeness. I zoom in on where fear is getting in the way, and use compassionate curiosity to create room for all parts of you to be heard. This allows you to move towards all of your heart’s most tender and profound longings in an integrated way.
We’ll take the journey together. It’s a lot less scary that way.
