The term “wounded healer” was first used by psychologist Carl Jung. Jung believed that healers were often wounded and that the personal experience of healing could be the best possible form of training. I look at psychotherapy as a process of healing wounds based upon my own experiences with healing trauma, conflict, disconnection, and lack of meaning.
As the somatic therapist Peter Levine states, “Trauma is a fact of life, but it doesn’t have to be a life sentence.” Most of us have experienced hardships, anguish, and the insufferable that life can often distress us with. I believe people who transform their trauma can live happier, more meaningful, and more connected lives.
My approach to therapy with clients is grounded in the present moment. I integrate presence, wholeness, deep connection, and sometimes movement into my sessions with clients.
I believe psychotherapy can be a catalyst for profound awakening and transformation. I can serve as a guide in witnessing your struggles and connecting your mind to your body and heart.
After almost two decades working in the corporate finance technology industry as a digital designer, I uncovered a deep motivation to serve others through their pain and suffering. I received certification in the Jungian Studies Program, a two-year program at the C.G. Jung Institute of Chicago, which includes a deep study into the psyche, mythology, dreams, and creativity. I completed a two-year program in advanced yoga studies and teacher training from the Bhavana Institute for Yoga and Ayurveda and I am a Registered Yoga Teacher. I have a Bachelor of Arts in Photography from Columbia College Chicago and am currently enrolled in the Masters of Arts in Clinical Mental Health Counseling at Northeastern Illinois University.
“Your visions will become clear only when you can look into your own heart. Who looks outside, dreams, who looks inside, awakes.”
