My Approach to Helping

I bring over twenty-five years of experience and extensive training to my work as a psychotherapist. I consider my profession my calling. And it is an honor to be able to accompany each of my clients on his or her individual journey toward greater peace, freedom, and self-discovery. Often it is a painful symptom that brings a client to my door. And though certainly we all seek to alleviate suffering, I see symptoms as precise messages from the soul, calling out for healing and change. If we can approach a symptom with openness and curiosity instead of as if it were an enemy, and try to understand what it wants us to know, then the healing has already begun. Because I practice depth and psychodynamic therapy, I work best with clients who have the interest in and capacity to go beneath symptoms in order to explore the unconscious relationship templates and core beliefs that continue to create disruption and distress in their lives. We can do this through exploring repetitive and destructive patterns, creative expression, and dreams. We also pay careful attention to all that happens between the two of us, in order that the interactions and dynamics between psychotherapist and client create a "relationship laboratory", a healing vessel, and a vehicle for change.

More Info About My Practice

I have trained in mindfulness-centered, somatic psychotherapy as well as completed a post-graduate, 5-year, full-time training in Jungian psychoanalysis.

My Role as a Therapist

Though I have studied the process of healing and self-development, or what C.G. Jung termed, "individuation" for many years, I believe that the answers to your life's deepest and biggest questions are within you not outside of you. Therefore I see my role as therapist primarily as a guide or navigator of your inner life and world and at moments as a midwife, supporting and encouraging you as you give birth to the fullest possible expression of the person that you were meant to be.

Important Factors for Choosing a Therapist

The research supports a potential client choosing his or her therapist based more on the feeling of comfort and acceptance rather than basing the decision on the therapist's particular technique, training or even years of experience. The good feeling you have when you sit across from your therapist is the best predictor of a positive and successful therapy outcome. In other words, it works best if you choose with your "gut" or your heart rather than with your rationality or intellect.
