What does “home” mean to you?
As an immigrant, I find myself pondering questions of home, identity, and belonging. I’m fortunate to have lived and studied in Kenya, Germany, England, and the US, where I have encountered multiple worldviews and ideas. I understand the challenges people face when they leave home and move to a new place, or when they do not feel at home in their own lives. We try to find ways to recreate a home for ourselves in the different spaces we inhabit.
Psychologically, “home” could be an emotional place where we experience love, acceptance and support. Home can also mean…
- … coming back to yourself, feeling a deep connection with who you are
- … being clear about your core values and life purpose
- … regaining your inner strength and balance amidst life’s uncertainties and demands.
I feel drawn to immigrants and other minorities who may not identify with the larger culture, and are exploring their inner and outer sense of home and belonging. As such, cultural safety and cultural humility are at the core of my practice. I love connecting with people, speak four languages, and can relate to folks from different cultures and backgrounds. I am also certified in trauma treatment and have a passion for working with trauma survivors. My training in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) enables me to help people process past traumas so that they are able to move forward with their lives and not feel stuck in the past. I have done four years of advanced training in a postgraduate Jungian seminar, and incorporate Jungian concepts and ideas in my clinical work.
