Our culture is not generally supportive of men openly expressing emotions or being vulnerable. In fact, I would guess that the word “vulnerable” has a negative connotation to the vast majority of men. Many men experience a lot perceived limitations emotionally, creatively, and in their relationships due in large part to the messages that they are subtly, or not so subtly, receiving. I help my clients find the most natural expression of themselves and the courage to take that self out of the office and into their lives.
I help people expand the range of their emotional experience and find a voice for the parts of themselves that are longing to be heard. I help people foster a positive relationship with their body and use their body as a resource. Our bodies give us signals that, when we learn to tune into them, give us information about our emotions, our intuition, our truth. I love helping people learn to regulate their emotions so they feel a sense of agency and healthy control over what they are expressing. You can expect to experience an increased sense of self-awareness, insight and perspective on yourself and your life. I help people feel more ease, comfort, and groundedness in their lives in addition to experiencing more creative energy, vitality and hope.
