My Approach to Helping
As a Doctor of Women's Spirituality and a psychotherapist, I believe we all possess an innate ability to heal ourselves. I aspire to help you awaken to your inherent wisdom, empowering you with tools to facilitate your own healing.
We are indoctrinated to forget ourselves, to distrust ourselves. Trusting yourself is a significant accomplishment in a world that teaches us to seek our sense of self through external validation. Knowledge is power. Our work together is designed to enable you to listen to your authentic self and trust what you know so that you have the freedom to write your own story.
More Info About My Practice
When we explore beyond symptoms to understand the root of the problem, heightened self-awareness and lasting change can occur. My approach is non-intrusive, integrating the emotional, spiritual, and physical realms.
I create and hold sacred space that cultivates a sense of safety and trust. From this place, with fierce compassion, I encourage and challenge you in a reverent way.
For twenty years, I have been practicing Psychotherapy and Integrative Healing with adults, couples, youth, and families. If you are a man, you may be surprised the extent to which my experience with women's issues can help you.
Part of my integrative approach includes designing rituals and rites of passage to help you leave your pain and trauma in the past so that you are no longer a victim to it. Trauma, especially reoccurring trauma, imprints on a cellular level. Your body remembers, thus the impetus for a more holistic path to healing. I endeavor to teach you how much you do know, helping you to access the dormant wisdom and knowledge that lives within.
Clients walk into my office from all different ancestries, racial, ethnic, and cultural backgrounds presenting a wide range of sexual orientations, socio-economic histories, religious and/or spiritual belief systems. All are welcome here.
On the Fence About Going to Therapy?
Searching for the right therapist and making that first appointment is often a challenge in itself. For this reason, I offer an initial 20-minute complimentary consultation to determine whether we would be a good fit working together. Meeting in person makes all the difference.
