Examining the Societal: Internal: Familial: Theological Structures We Live Within
Serving clients in Washington State via telehealth therapy sessions
WELCOME TO S.I.F.T.
sift: "To examine something thoroughly so as to isolate that which is important or useful."
Therapy is the process of mining for what stays and what goes in our lives. Figuring out what serves us and letting go of what does not is at the center of the therapeutic process.
We *sift* through all the components of our lives so the most useful parts can emerge.
Every person has received messages regarding who they are through society, their own internal wiring and narratives, through their families of origin, and within belief systems they were raised. I view examining those structural messages as crucial to one’s mental and behavioral health. Walking alongside and collaborating with those willing to challenge the messages that are no longer serving their well-being is the heartbeat of my work.
