Integrating creativity, attachment science, a solution-based focus, and mindfulness-based spirituality is at the heart of my coaching and therapeutic methodology. Whether working with a three-year-old child or a high-conflict couple, these principles interweave the foundation of my practice. A relationship emerges from the depths of all forms of suffering once we choose to seek support, and an unshakable truth often ensues. Perhaps a teenager seeks relief from depression and is looking for a way through chronic existential confusion and dread. Ideally, they will learn how to relate compassionately to this aspect of their identity that unleashed unrelenting, dark pain.
Similarly, when working with families and children, we uncover the origin of the ailment and meet it with unbiased curiosity while simultaneously allowing all emotions their time in the spotlight. When given a chance to breathe, all forms of suffering tell unique stories that long for something other than a narration governed by shame and resistance. This approach cultivates relatedness among ourselves and others which is the recipe for healing, relief, and a way forward. Interconnectedness is the feeling we get when we slow down and meet ourselves and each other in the moment despite our circumstances. This is when a parent can care for themselves by breathing deeply while their child's tantrum is ferociously omnipresent. When a couple is overtaken by rage and blame, the goal isn't to never fight again but to witness ourselves in our fight personas, knowing there is an unmet need hidden in the shadows looking for permission to exist. Learning how to regulate our emotions and find the corresponding words to express our inner landscapes is hard to come by in this society. It is no accident that relationships and mental health are constantly deficient in peace, acceptance, and proficient skills, given the skewed value system most of us adhere to without conscious consent. By giving yourself, your children, your family, or your relationship the gift of compassionate support, an entirely new paradigm can unfold, allowing for the entirety of yourselves and your circumstances.
