Daysha views herself as a feminist therapist and her clients can expect an egalitarian client-therapist relationship. She supports her clients in exploring stereotype molds that may be blocking their development, provides encouragement to work through life challenges, and facilitates the creation of empowered narratives that embrace their authentic self.
Daysha brings a unique East-West perspective when supporting her clients in examining any self-limiting narratives and transforming them into empowered and life-affirming beliefs. Her philosophy is holistic, integrative, and collaborative. Daysha’s therapeutic approach includes narrative, existential, mindful self-compassion, REBT, and EMDR techniques. Daysha also incorporates guided meditations and wellness rituals as part of her therapeutic practice.
Daysha’s practice focuses on working with adult individuals. She honors the Sacred Feminine and sees the aspects of feminine and masculine as equal and important aspects of the Divine. Daysha values the innate worth of the mind, body, and soul, and practices offering ceremony that reaffirms our connection to the Divine, the Earth, and each other.
