My Approach to Helping
Acknowledging that you might be in over your head isn't weak, it's wise. If you’ve tried everything you can think of to feel better, but your mind still attacks you or relationships always seem to go sour or you never quite feel at ease even when everything's OK, maybe it's time to look a little deeper. It's not that cutting off toxic people or upping your cardio won't help, because they probably will! But sometimes the wound goes deeper than that or the situation you're in is just too overwhelming to sort through on your own. When things like that go unaddressed, they sabotage even our best efforts at creating the life we want.
Using my background in depth psychotherapy and Zen Buddhist meditation practice, I'll teach you how to listen more deeply to your thoughts and emotions. I'll help you untangle the ways you get in your own way so you can live your life in alignment with your truth. Together, we'll bring a compassionate eye to the parts of you that are hardest to love.
My role is to walk this path with you, to share your joys and sorrows, challenge and encourage you, and hold the possibility that your inner light is present even in your darkest moments. Therapy is a collaborative process that relies on open, honest and respectful communication. Everything we do is to discover a greater sense of freedom in heart and mind.
