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 love people, speak four languages, and can relate to people from different cultures and backgrounds. 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” can be an emotional place where we experience acceptance and support. Ultimately, home for me means…
- … 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.
Come home to yourself
I am a culturally competent therapist, certified in trauma treatment, and currently in advanced training to be a Jungian Analyst. 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. I have a passion for helping trauma survivors; my training in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) enables me to work with people to process their past traumatic experiences, so that they are able to move forward with their lives and not feel stuck in the past.
I invite you to explore and return to your inner home, to your Self. I would be honored to be your guide and witness in this important life journey. If you are ready to take that first step, visit my website or call 678-582-8425 for a free consult.
