My Approach to Helping

A fully expressed life emerges when we connect with our innate resilience and become who we are meant to be. We have more energy, feel inspired, connect with others and ourselves more deeply, and experience the natural ebb and flow of life with greater ease.

Whether you have done psychotherapy before, or are brand new, I am here to help. I offer a beautiful, unique approach to healing, one that brings together teachings from Western psychology and Eastern wisdom traditions.

It is possible to become free from those ?stuck? places in life, to heal naturally and gradually, with support, guidance, and inner wisdom.

The secret? We need to work with the body to support its natural ability to heal. The mind is very helpful, in fact, it?s an essential resource that we draw upon. However, if we don?t also integrate the content and experience of life in an embodied way, by inviting flow through our physical and energetic systems, we can remain stuck, unable to be who we truly are.

Complete healing comes from mindful awareness of the whole self, and working from a place of embodied connection with our true, genuine essence. All you need to bring is your commitment and an openness to the possibility of healing your life.

I am here. Ready to begin the healing journey with you. Please feel free to visit my website for additional information about me and my approach to treatment.

Warmest wishes,

The Duration and Frequency of Therapy

The length of therapy will vary from person to person. I typically see clients once a week, but there are many exceptions to that, depending on whether someone is in a time of crisis or stability. I enjoy working with my clients in a team approach, so that we are in regular communication with one another about the progress of therapy. Typically, we decide together when therapy is complete. I support my clients fully to move beyond ongoing therapy when they are ready for that. I invite a process of transition, as well, so that the client can feel good about moving out into the world, maintaining progress they have made, and also recognizing when they may want or need to make adjustments to this process for additional support at times.
