The Enneagram invites us to see beyond our masks and defense mechanisms, helping us unveil the beauty and authenticity of our true selves. - Riso and Hudson (Authors of "The Wisdom of the Enneagram")
All human beings are inherently unknowable. Everything about you cannot fit a theory. And yet the Enneagram offers a map to our psyche.
Many clients approach me for therapy because of my specialization in the Enneagram. They find that it helps them to feel seen deeply. And often, that’s when the real work begins where we look at your unique potential. Most people are seeking help that more precisely addresses their complexes, unconscious fears, and motivations. People can sometimes spend years in therapy talking, seeking, and grasping for direction yet miss the core issues that run their life. The Enneagram can help give direction and speed the process up.
The Enneagram is best understood as a precise and dynamic map of archetypal ego-patterns. When you learn how to recognize these patterns as they arise, you can experience long-term, sustainable growth. Stanford Medical School Professor Late Dr. David Daniels elaborated on the neurobiological basis for the Enneagram - that the brain can be retrained once we can recognize and observe our patterns.
It's important to remember that accurate as the Enneagram map is, the territory of your being is far more complex. And yet, a map is profoundly helpful for navigation.
I use the Enneagram to help become aware of and bring loving acceptance to your hidden defense mechanisms, unconscious motivations, and fears, that are in the way of what you can become. My own journey with this system started more than a decade ago and I still keep discovering new layers of gifts and challenges.
