My Approach to Helping

I act as your guide and facilitator to help you get to know all aspects of yourself, all your "parts", and to access your inner resource for healing and wisdom. Together, we find new ways to transform old coping styles and patterns, heal old wounds and the beliefs about yourself, relationships and the world that grew from those old wounds, and find new ways to move forward in your life. The energy and power held in those old wounds become the gifts that you can take into a new way of living as you write your new story of a life of joy and purpose. Using Internal Family Systems (IFS) Therapy, a powerful and gentle evidence-based therapy found to help with general functioning and well-being, phobia, panic, and Generalized Anxiety Disorders, physical health conditions and symptoms, personal resilience, depression and depressive symptoms, and trauma; cutting edge trauma therapies, mindfulness, and energy and psychoshamanic practices, I work with you to access the roots your current issues, and release and transform old wounds to create the life you want.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

Chronic childhood abuse, attachment and emotional mis-attunement issues; spiritual crises and spiritual emergencies; life transitions; lack of purpose; anxiety and depression.
On-line video and telephone therapy.
