The most important elements of a psychotherapeutic relationship are trust and respect.
This trust extends beyond one individual trusting another, to a trust that growth and healing are possible, and that each person has within a seed of wisdom that can be nurtured and can serve as a guide toward embodied, soulful living.
I have been influenced and inspired by several streams of psychotherapy, including Jungian, Person-Centered, Mindfulness and Mind-Body Therapies.

My Role as a Therapist

My role as a therapist is to provide a safe place where a client can explore, reflect, and give voice to his/her experience. I work to help clients to free up life energy that has been 'tangled' in inner conflict, negative judgment and or physical symptoms.
I also work with clients dream material and expressive arts, helping clients to develop a fluency with their individual 'soul-language'

What I Say to People Concerned about the Therapy Process

Most of us come from families or cultures where some aspect of our emotional life has been considered 'bad' or shameful. The result is that certain emotional experiences, are complicated by feelings of shame, fear of abandonment and/or panic.
In psychotherapy, clients learn a variety of skills that help him/her to connect with inner resources so that feelings are less overwhelming.
This also helps each client to begin to sort out the components of the emotional experience that are reflective of the present, and which are carryover from the past.
