About AngelaWorking With Me
As an immigrant family, my parents emphasized and modeled hard work and self-sufficiency.
Do you remember that old antiperspirant commercial, “Never let ’em see you sweat?” That could’ve been my family’s motto.
The only problem with that rule is that life is hard… and sweaty. You can’t handle things by yourself ALL the time. Sometimes you need help. I’ve come to believe that being vulnerable and showing your messy self is the way to true strength and not just the appearance of strength.
I can help. I understand that asking for help is hard and receiving it may be harder still. It’s a process.
Clients who work with me say they feel relief and hope, often after the first session. Do all their problems suddenly disappear? No, of course not!
But they now know they’re not alone and that we’re going to slowly and surely work on healing those beliefs and memories that are keeping them stuck.
You’ll find me open, curious, direct and affirming in our sessions together. You’re going to gain a lot of tools that can make you feel better BUT these tools are like muscles – they need to be used in order to get stronger.
I’ll ask you to practice at least one thing throughout the week. I also use a lot of practices that involve listening to the body and the information within, much more than just talking about your feelings. You don’t have to be good at this, you just have to be open to trying.
If you’re ready to connect to yourself and heal from the past, let’s work together.
