TALK TO ME
BE YOUR OWN
Life is an art, a process in which the way you go about it essentially determines your results. Using the artistic princple of chiaroscuro, the study of how light & shadow illuminate form, we can explore & create our lives as authentic reflections of who we are.
Knowing yourself & believing what you know are invaluable resources for sustaining focus & self-care when you find hard to see taking care of yourself as an essential priority.
Being your own night light means learning about yourself from the differences between what you see when you are feeling your best & what you see when you are hiding in the shadows; its those differences that shape how we shape ourselves & therefore our world.
Learn to tell the difference between what you know about yourself & what you've been told about yourself.
Knowing & embracing your truth is a tricky, sensitive & sometimes painful practice;
don't do it alone. Find someone
you trust to walk with you through those blind curves.
My practice of anti-oppression counseling & ally training comes from a deep conviction that what ails us psersonally is what ails us collectively & it doesn't take a rocket scientist to know our world is hurting.
It may seem counter intuitive, but I love difficult conversations, hunger & long for them because difficulty holds the greatest potentital for transformation & that's what I do: I transform poison into medicine.
We are often encouraged to see ourselves as only shiny although in doing so we become blinded from our full reality, which means we live in delusions. As the old folks will tell you, the truth will set you free.
Through empathic listening, guidance in rewriting the stories you tell yourself & support in nurturing a self-chosen identity I can help you see yourself as you really are.
This is a time of shift, a time of change & a time of healing. Creating the world we want to see asks for the conscious creation of our selves first.
