I work in partnership with my clients -- a partnership that offers an opportunity to find clarity, authenticity and a better understanding of difficult experiences. I pay close attention to what you want, need and feel in a space set aside for internal reflection, a place to heal wounds and a place to learn to feel and be whole. By providing guidance and a nonjudgmental presence, I help you learn to navigate all the parts of yourself and make sense of your internal and external experiences. Together, we'll work to apply your developing sense of yourself to overcome obstacles that get in the way of a more satisfying and enjoyable life. Many people find that although they came in to work on a particular problem, not only is that better, but they also experience many positive changes that they never could have anticipated.
As a seasoned therapist I bring extensive experience helping people work through anxiety disorders, relationship difficulties, depression, betrayal, trauma, childhood emotional neglect, transitions, loss, issues around sexuality, ACOA and other family concerns. I also provide 12-Step support. I work at a level of depth but am also practical and down to earth.
My approach is interactive and is based on your personal history and needs. My personal style is engaged and open, offering feedback and observations with a compassionate blend of support and challenge. Using an integrative approach of talk therapy and mind-body techniques, i.e., somatic awareness, mindfulness, breath work, guided imagery, I provide a warm, caring presence, with a focused attention on you and your concerns. I specialize in helping people who have cultivated their intellect and creativity and would now like to develop their emotional and relational worlds. I am also currently training in attachment focused EMDR.
Think we might be a good fit? Please don't hesitate to reach out. I am happy to schedule a complimentary 20 minute phone consultation to learn about your needs and to answer any questions you might have about my practice or how to get started. I look forward to hearing from you.
