I see myself as a guide who goes on the journey of self-discovery and healing with the individual or couple. Different kinds of approaches make sense with different people, and I draw on my more than 20 years of experience where I have been exposed to many different kinds of work. I have learned to work with people's emotions, their thoughts and beliefs , their bodies and their spiritual quests. What I have been learning through my Buddhist practice and my work in Somatic Experiencing has been changing my practice in the last few years. I also feel very strongly connected to my original social work training which keeps me aware of how the person fits into their larger community.
