“Shame is the intensely painful feeling or experience of believing that we are flawed and therefore unworthy of love, belonging, and connection.” Brené Brown
Shame is something we all experience. It is part of what it means to be human, influencing who we are and how we behave. Talking about it is difficult, so difficult that we fear and avoid shame because it leaves us feeling uncomfortable and vulnerable. Therapy can be helpful for anyone who feels that shame is negatively impacting their life and the lives of those of around them, or those who find themselves stuck and unable to move forward.
As a Certified Daring Way Facilitator™, I have had extensive training and certification under Brené Brown’s Shame Resiliency Model. Therapy aligned with Shame Resiliency Theory helps clients interpret their reaction to shame, its triggers, and how they can connect better with others while reducing fear and increasing empathy.
Therapy will help you understand the four elements of shame resilience that can provide a valuable focus for healing.
- Learn to recognize and understand your shame triggers
- Develop high levels of critical awareness about your shame
- Learn the importance of reaching out to others
- Become able to speak about shame
The only way out is through… This is a tough one for those working on reconciling with their trauma and past pain. I will help you uncover your triggers and experience with shame, teach you to create authentic connections built on empathy, and empower you to own your story. I am here to help you edit your story to include kindness and compassion while allowing you to embrace authenticity and whole-hearted living.
