Here's a helpful tool: change is not attained by judging and seeing yourself as a hopeless "fixer upper". The option is to regard yourself as inherently whole and healthy, even as you know there are things you want to change. Then you can build on what you already know to be special about you and your therapy can be encouraging every step of the way.


You can expect my deep presence and often surprising perspectives that help you to shake loose old, frustrating belief patterns. Humor is part of your sessions. I share friendly, fun activities you can do in session that get you out of your head so you can access all the information you have living within you: body, mind and spirit. Studies show: when we use our bodies and have fun in the process, we learn more easily, completely and permanently.

My own personal discoveries and growth are ongoing. If I am doing my own work, I have lots more to offer you! Learning never ends as long as we choose to stay engaged.

More Info About My Practice

NATURE BASED THERAPY:

Your therapy can include a hike in the woods! There is great guidance and renewal in the natural earth. You belong to a wonderfully large and regenerative web of life and nature can be a strong ally for you. I have years of experience as a wilderness guide so I can support you in connecting with nature in meaningful ways.


BODY INTELLIGENCE:

There is a therapy that focuses on what we call body intelligence: the knowledge and information your body holds. You can learn a lot about yourself by paying attention to a gesture, a posture or some chronic physical pain. We live through our physical sensations-our bodies are the miraculous vehicle through which sense all of our experience, every day. Connecting deeply with your body-mind can profoundly shift your whole perspective on life.

TALK THERAPY:

Sometimes it's important to use the power of words and the curious mind so there can be an underlying foundation of understanding where old patterns came from.
