Rooted Resilience is lead by MCFT, Jena Honeyman, who helps couples and individuals alike explore how to be the best version of themselves; according to who the author should be of your life, YOU.
We are ingrained in so many societal norms, extending as far as media and as close as cultural and relational expectations. It’s easy to get lost in the noise. When we can quiet the sound and hear from within, we can effectively begin to communicate not just to ourselves but to others. This skill is essential in creating enriched relationships with oneself and with the world at large. What is your inner voice trying to say?
It's my hope in session that we are able to look at difficult places together and explore the parts that change the way we see and orient; helping us walk the path we chose in life. Holding a map helps; I'm here to create that with you.
Serving individual, couples and families, I specialize in depression, anxiety, death and loss, life transitions, parenting, communication, Solastalgia/Ecogrief
Rooted Resilience practices in non-violent communication, helping clients to set up safe parameters to bring the “hard” stuff knowing that they are in a space of non judgment. Coming from a strength-based approach, I incorporate narrative, ecopsycholgy, experiential, solution focused and collaborative. What works for some may not work for others so I approach clients unique needs with a multi faceted theoretical framework stemming from the above.
Being partnered can be expansive and wonderful and lonely and disorientating, and sometimes all at once. Couples come to therapy for a number of reasons and the hope is to get a better understanding of who the couple is by unpacking how we came to be. Obstacles are bound to arise when folks are partnered, gaining skills and awareness on how to navigate them effectively together is what couples therapy is all about.
Common issues to want to come to therapy for couples:
Life transitions, work life balance, failing to connect, infertility/ivf/adoption, contemplating or deciding on long-term commitment, parenting styles and differences,infidelity, orchestrating morals and values that point in the same or at least a similar direction.
Dismantling gender norms, creating equity in the relationship and negotiating alternative ways of being in relationship to one another is a great start for continued and sustained happiness both with ourselves and other.
By incorporating eco psychology practices we can walk the path LITERALLY; I’m offering walk therapy where we can generate natural endorphins by combining exercise and therapy. Mindful walks and forest bathing are therapeutic interventions that can help move us in the right direction. Like most interventions this isn’t for everyone; candidates should be able to walk with periodic breaks for 50-90 minutes depending on session length.Whether you are looking for an aerobic therapy walking session or a meditative, relaxing walking session, I am happy to meet you where you are at. Walking spaces can include school outdoor tracks, public parks, and in your neighborhood or work place. The space will be determined by taking into consideration the comfortability and safety of both the therapist and client.
Want to bring your dog? Sounds GREAT, our furry friends can help us feel less anxious and more comfortable. For some clients it can be a distraction, so you should make a decision based on your circumstance. Joining the Journey of walk therapy can be incorporated at any point in our work together.
Retreats where women identified folks can reconnect to themselves and to the sacred divine of the earth. Feel grounded in community and safe enough to bring forth the truest expansion of yourself; the rewilding of your spirit. These 3 day retreats include a 30 minute phone consultation so we can become really clear of what you invision gaining from the experience. I will also offer a 50 minute individual session after the retreat to make sure the roots of your new growth are holding strong.
Meals and Camping Costs are covered with your tuition. Camping supplies for individuals are not provided but sometimes can be supplemented by staff. Reach out if you have questions about the packing list.
