My Approach to Helping
We suffer when we resist our painful experience and feeling based on relationships to early caregivers. In my work I assist you to discover what has been avoided in your efforts to survive. I do this by providing a compassionate presence and helping to observe blocks to awareness that emerge in our meetings. I think this mechanism is universal. We all hide from our painful experiences and the feelings attached to them. This avoidance creates the problems that bring us to psychotherapy. These can be problems in relating to ourselves and others or may show up as unexplained physical symptoms or anxiety as well as self destructive patterns. Often the first step is to develop a self compassionate view.
My aim is to decrease suffering and bring light into the dark places. I feel privileged to undertake this work which requires courage on both our parts. I am an active participant in determining what the difficulties are and how to work with them. Together we will chart a path toward emotional freedom.
