When used as a medium in which one heals, therapy is the process by which a human being(s) is intentionally accompanied and assisted by another on their journey toward uncovering their wholeness. It is the grand co-creation of client and clinician/ healer and guide, wherein the healer, by way of awareness, genuine expression, practiced strategies, trial and error, and dialogue, learns that they can choose to see theirself more whole and, thus, transform their life. It is the sacred space wherein the healer can show up raw and unedited without pretense and without the actual threat of judgment being imposed as truth. It is the healing place wherein the healer may try on their authentic soul expression, experience it more fully, flaunt it, play in it, grow accustomed to it and, when they are willing, begin to express it in their daily life.
I am formally recognized by the state of New York as a licensed master social worker. I offer a heart healing path approach to therapy, for the heart has a profound and often suppressed consciousness that provides an open pathway to unveiling one’s purposes by revealing their wholeness to them. Heart healing is the choice to hear one’s heart through the fiercest of the mind’s distracting lies about who one is and what one has to offer. The healing journey is, then, not the process of rewriting oneself as whole, but, rather, it is perceiving the wholeness that one already is.
The heart healing path approach places fundamental, clinical social work theory, practice, ethics, tools, and symptom conceptualization/categorization within the context of heart-centeredness, thereby revering and making space for ways of perceiving self that extend beyond
the mind. It acknowledges the soul’s ability to be expressed through nonverbal mediums such as uninhibited, heart-led art, and it acknowledges the body’s innate wisdom and (often undervalued) ability to share healing truths. It acknowledges the whole
lived experience of a person – mind, body, and soul – by practically melding intuition and
intellect. This approach is, thus, multifaceted, mobilizing celebration, curiosity, experience, practice, reflection, awareness, imagination, exploration, and soul expression while drawing from the frameworks of dialectical behavior therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy functional family therapy, strengths perspective, client-centered perspective, mindfulness, problem-solving/solution-centered perspective, soul-expressive art/heart-led art (via movement, lyrical expression, free writing, free-from poetry, wordless vocalization).
All who desire to hear their hearts more clearly are welcomed! Let us, then, begin, to cocreate your heart healing path practice, wherein you will become aware of your option to choose
to see yourself as you truly are - whole and full of Life. What you persistently practice will become your way of life, and your way of life will determine the quality of your lived experience.
I earned a BA Psychology from Fairleigh Dickinson University in 2015 and an MSW degree from New York University’s Silver School of Social Work in 2019.
