For me, aside from their incredible beauty, butterflies signify the extraordinary growth that all living things — including humans — are able to make a choice and change. I often reflect on the journey of the caterpillar, and can make a distinct parallel to my own and others growth.
Think about it: a butterfly starts out as a cumbersome caterpillar, crawling slowly along the ground, being stepped on, and then discarded. It is easy to discount the caterpillar.
Yet caterpillars somehow instinctively know that if they don’t make a huge change, they will die. As well, if they stay in their self-made cocoons for too long, they will perish; but if they try to emerge too soon, they won’t be strong enough to succeed as a fragile butterfly. Our gentle caterpillars seem to know exactly what to do to preserve their self-care and become the very best they can possibly be — beautiful butterflies — spreading their wings and flying in whatever direction they please, giving joy to those who behold them.
How can we not learn a lot from butterflies?
My own personal journey of healing began when I allowed myself to reach out for help. I remember how difficult that was for me, and I also remember the kind and generous people who cared enough to assist me. I found a mentor. It began with the anxiety experience, believing that this was the main issue.
My mentor brought me to a new level of awareness, self discovery and self mastery. I began to engage in a self loving adventure. I needed to peel back the layers and heal many wounded parts of me to be able to release the shame and guilt I was carrying from many Behavioural/Identity/Values and Beliefs from childhood. These patterns were repeating until I became aware of them and I knew I was not going to experience my beautiful wings if I had not completed the work feeling safe with my many mentors.
It is exactly because I have experienced crushing defeat in my life, and have humbled myself enough to reach out for the help I needed, that I know how scary it can be for my clients — to make that first phone call or send that first email to me.
I often hear that they chose to contact me because of how authentically I present myself, I understand the courage it takes for them to be emotionally vulnerable with me in the session. I respect that courage and know that its this courage is what can bring them to their journey of your healing.
I feel very grateful to be able to work with you in a beautiful, safe environment like the River House. It offers many opportunities for growth and healing.
I adapt each session to your unique needs. I am committed to helping you find your own solution at your own pace.
