instead listen to their voice...
and hear their truth.”
The Transitional Being
Human connection ignites the soul and produces endless interactions of creativity, spontaneity and exploration. We yearn to find these relationships and to fully invest our time and energy into – it’s in our nature to do so.
However, I find that looking for a relationship within ourselves is still a very foreign experience.
Sometimes, we place high expectations on others to help us find who we are and what our purpose really is. Thing is, how could we ever be that for someone else if we are not able to provide those traits for ourselves?
To truly connect to self is to transition into the authentic “me” and all that it entails – accepting the transition as a welcomed change. Three transitional areas I work closely with, are: Saturn’s Return, Postpartum & Associate Life (AMFT).
Saturn’s return suggests an important time in a person’s life (approx. age 27-29), to reflect, embrace the time for self-awareness, accept new change and make decisions to enhance the authentic self. I would like to help you find your way back into the driver’s seat, change paths if needed, create options, become your own authority, discover an unshakable core self within you, find balance & wholeness (mind, body, soul) and remind you that you are NOT starting over, but adding to your story – healing and accepting the path you were meant to be on.
Another transition I work closely with is that fourth trimester that comes right after the baby is born. Yep, that postpartum life is one difficult journey to embark on and so many women suffer in silence and feel the expectation to “bounce back” to the person they were, pre-pregnancy. Many women not only feel the pressure from others, but also place a significant amount of energy in believing they “should” be back to being “themselves” within 6-8 weeks postpartum. Though “the fourth” refers to the last trimester (approx.12 weeks postpartum) my fourth trimester seemed to last for approx. 12 months -sparking my passion in working with fellow mothers. Our sessions will become the space you need to excel through one of the toughest and unexpected life transitions to mommy hood.
And lastly, my respect for the academic road to success is undoubtedly present and my growth as a student flourished; however, I didn’t expect to feel so alone once I graduated with my masters. I missed the structure, timelines and weekly guidance – I was not prepared to embark on my Associates MFT journey. I’d like to help you, fellow AMFT colleagues, adopt new perspectives, become present in this process and discover the therapist you were meant to be – and most importantly, feel secure about it. I would like to assist you in exploring personal & professional aspirations, create a life where work & personal life is balanced, challenge self-doubt and allow for your authentic self to emerge and shine bright.
