My Approach to Helping
Have you noticed that you have been in a fog lately? You know that you have been working hard, doing the best you can to exercise, and being that the best that you can... however, things just don't seem right.
You are aware that you have been putting off taking care of yourself or tending to that part of you that you have packaged away until the kids are older. This avoidance has started to turn from days to years.
Maybe you are in a life transition, and this has caused new information and challenge to arise in your life, you feel lost, uncomfortable in your own skin, and tend to busy yourself to avoid feeling.
You are human, and it's our nature to create a routine, safeguard our lives, and to seek comfort rather than to rock the boat. It is likely that if you take some time to explore what is going on, that you might find a much deeper, more meaningful path for your life. I can help facilitate your awareness and support you to find new ways to care for all parts of you. This means living more in line with your heart's desire and your true capacity.

Couples report a deeper understanding of each other, feeling more aware of what it takes to love and be loved. They report new freedom to be unique in their own choices about what works for their specific relationship.

Why Going to Therapy Does Not Mean You are Weak or Flawed
Somatic Based Psychotherapy has its origins and routes in the eastern and Buddhist Psychology. These practices make sense because we embody the whole person and don't leave the body and spirit out. The mindfulness practice involves inviting compassion to our human nature, curiosity, and nonjudgment. We cultivate kindness rather than the western pull towards perfectionism. Courage and strength involve vulnerability and risk to take a chance. Cour in french means heart. If you believe that bringing your heart and authentic challenges to therapy mean that you are flawed, I encourage you to consider that all human beings need each other for something. Therapy is no different.
