Working with me
As mentioned on our About Us page I'm not a therapist. I'm a researcher. I'm quite fond of data. I want to know that what I'm doing is making a difference - and if it's not, then I want to change it. My process for working with clients is simple and effective: assess, research, plan, act.
Likewise, I fight every day to extinguish gaslighting. Have you seen the 1944 movie Gaslight with Ingrid Bergman? I first saw that film 25 years ago as a young woman. I saw how one person can make you think you are going crazy. Since then, I have tried to notice the gaslighting all around us and fight to be free. Over the years I excavated my life and rediscovered the truth - my truth. Utilizing several tools, including Internal Family Systems (IFS), has helped me experience a deep understanding of who I am and the confidence to stop contorting myself to fit someone else's beliefs and start living my own.
What I offer my clients is a chance to use Internal Family Systems to excavate their own truth. This research-based approach helps free you from gaslighting, expectations from other people or high demand religions, parents, partners, or anyone else. You turn inward, find your own truth, heal old wounds, and live your very best life. I'm here to coach you through it, extinguisher at the ready.
