My Approach to Helping
There are times in which the capacity to tap into our innate wisdom and inner resources to understand, manage, and resolve internal or external conflict is difficult. We can't seem to make the changes we want or imagine for ourselves and may feel limited, stuck, and not quite our self. This internal or external conflict/distress may show up in our relationships, or as anxiety, insecurity, depression, compulsive or addictive behaviors, and other adaptive mind states. It is during these times that the process of therapy can be a help. I believe that learning to recognize, understand, and consciously get to know our inner world and how we operate in a focused, supportive, and compassionate environment is a big part of the therapeutic process. I work holistically and value the connection between one's mind, body, and spirit. I often say that "it all happens in relationships," either to our self or others. I offer my presence, encouragement, and faith in the person's inherent potential to find a means in which to feel better and live more fully from their True Self.
