Are you stuck in self-criticism at home and at work?
Do you often keep promises with others, but break them with yourself?
Tired of feeling so burnt out?
Self-compassion can help.
Self-judgment is a trance. When you practice self-compassion, you learn to break that trance and become more connected with your innate wisdom. I can guide you in discovering a deeper capacity for self-acceptance and loving presence, so that you can have more caring and genuine relationships, and a greater sense of meaning and purpose in your life. The trance of self-judgment has a strong grip because it numbs you when you are unable or unwilling to accept how you really feel, what you most deeply want, who you truly are. Self-compassion helps loosen that grip and gives you greater clarity about what’s actually happening. From that clarity, you can respond more authentically, rather than reacting habitually.
I support clients in awakening self-compassion as they work through:
- relationship challenges/codependency
- stalled career/work stress
- grief and loss
- creative blocks
- life transitions
I also have a special interest in providing counseling for donor-conceived people.
