I work in partnership -- a partnership that offers an opportunity to find clarity, authenticity and a better understanding of oneself, others and difficult experiences. I pay close attention to what you want, need and feel in a space set aside for internal reflection, healing and learning to feel and be whole. I help you learn to navigate all the parts of yourself and make sense of your internal and external experiences. Working together, you'll learn to listen to and apply this developing sense of yourself to overcome obstacles that get in the way of a more satisfying, authentic and enjoyable life.
I bring extensive experience helping people work through anxiety disorders, relationship difficulties, depression, betrayal, trauma, childhood emotional neglect, life transitions, loss, work stress, 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 needs and personal history. My personal style is engaged and open, offering feedback and observations with a compassionate blend of support and challenge. Using an integration of a deep psychotherapeutic approach of talk therapy and mind-body techniques, i.e., somatic awareness, movement, imagery, mindfulness; I provide a warm, caring presence of support and compassion. Many people find that although they come in to work on a particular problem, not only do they experience profound and enduring changes around that concern, they also experience many positive changes that they never could have anticipated.
Think we might be a good fit? I am happy to schedule a complimentary 20 minute phone consultation to learn about your situation and to answer any questions you might have about my practice. I look forward to hearing from you.
