"Shame festers in the shadows and can only be relinquished in the light."
Shame is a complex emotion that can stem from past experiences, cultural and societal beliefs, and personal values and expectations. Therapy can help individuals explore the root causes of their shame, foster self-compassion, and build upon the innate resiliency that has gotten them this far. I take a relational approach to working with shame that is emotionally-focused and attachment-informed. Shame festers in secrecy. Through relationship it has the opportunity to be transformed!
How can therapy be helpful for an HSP?
Therapy can help you cultivate greater awareness and self-compassion. Tools fostered through our work together include: emotional and body-based regulation skills, self-compassion, effective communication, resiliency building, and somatic affective awareness.
I provide affirmative support for shame related to:
Childhood Trauma or Sexual Abuse
Erotic Desires or Kink
Introversion or Shyness
Masturbation or Pornography
Sexuality and Gender Identity
