My Approach to Helping
My work centers around helping people move toward their ideal life situation, using the present moment as the gateway to helping clients develop the life they want.
When it comes to working with emotional distress, I help clients learn how to work with the physical body-based experience of difficult emotions using mindfulness techniques. Though development of the mind's connection to the body we gain access to feelings and sensations that have been subconsciously keeping us from moving forward in our lives. Conversely, strengthening and developing our connection to the emotional experiences that feed and inspire us creates momentum, which carries us forward and past the stories of our limitations.
In addition to my experience with the integration of mindfulness in psychotherapy I have 250 hours of training in somatic trauma therapy. When working with traumatic experiences in therapy my priority is to help clients learn skills to emotionally resource themselves in moments of distress by helping them develop strong skills for accessing positive resourced physical states.
