My Approach to Helping

I believe that deep inside of all of us are the answers to our own dilemmas, questions, and growth. My job is to facilitate this process of discovery which produces it's own unique, new, and life changing forward steps. Every human being is unique so I feel it is important to draw from a wide variety of approaches and traditions. I draw from the training in, and practice of Transpersonal (spiritual) Psychotherapy, Relational-Self Psychology, Focusing, EMDR, CDOI, Process Orientated Psychotherapy, Marriage and Family Therapy, Group Therapy, and Gestalt Therapy. I understand that within the problems and conundrums that bring people into therapy such as anxiety, depression, addictions, feelings of isolation, problems in assertion and self esteem, that implicit in these problems are the answers because every problem has within it it's own forward movement. I feel that problems we have in our lives are important messages from 'a deeper part of the self that is trying to get heard, perhaps parts that have been ignored, shunned and abandoned. In my work I help to make contact with these sometimes problematic and often hurt parts by building a relationship in which there is safety, trust, and freedom. My experience has been that this brings surprising insights, shifts and healing. As our difficult places become known and slowly accepted they become integrated and we become more whole, actualized, and present as people. This new relationship with our deeper, greater 'more' inside brings fresh new life, a sense of being at home, and the ability to move forward.
