I see counseling as a practice of assisted self-discovery. Awareness of the present moment, attention to emotions and sensations in the body, and mindful witnessing of thoughts are at the heart of my practice. My approach is compassionate and non-judgmental, and I provide a safe space for you to turn toward your experience. A whole body-mind approach is much more effective than talk therapy alone.
I draw from somatic, humanistic, and existential theories to orient our work, and utilize a variety of techniques including Mindfulness-Based Interventions, Hakomi, Somatic Psychotherapy, Contemplative Psychotherapy, Person-Centered (Rogerian) Therapy, Gestalt Therapy, Existential Therapy, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.
