My Approach to Helping
Our natural state is one of balance and harmony. Many life conditions can throw us off kilter from time to time or even for years. Life can sometimes be darkened by depression, agitated by anxiety, or even rageful with anger. Our nervous system could be highly dysregulated from immense trauma or even small traumas in life.
When we experience these states or life conditions, they can become obstacles to our natural state and rob us of peace of mind and from fully enjoying life. Our relationships can suffer and how we live and move in the world becomes more difficult, even painful at times.
I have dedicated my professional life to help individuals reduce their struggles, dissatisfaction, or even deep suffering. All the while, empowering one's ability to claim their strengths, connections, unique talents, abilities, joy, wisdom and peace of mind. All of which may have lessened, or disappeared, or never had been experienced at all.
Throughout 25 years of working with individuals and groups, I have witnessed miraculous changes in people. We all naturally gravitate toward coherence. It is natural to need help when we sometimes get stuck or have undergone a stressful incident in our lives. My job is to help you move through any difficulties, negative states of emotion or mind, relationship disruption, etc.. and gently return to who you truly are, your natural state.
More Info About My Practice
Since beginning my therapy career in 1988, I have learned that therapy must be precisely tailored to each individual to create a successful and lasting outcome. My diversity in training and experience, as well as direct input from you, will allow us to develop an individualized and integrated plan to address your particular issues, needs and goals.
Another, equally important, factor is for you and I to be a good match together. This provides a solid foundation in which all healing, change and growth will emerge.
For this reason, I offer free phone consultations, so we can discuss what is happening in your life right now, how you are doing, and what you would like help with that we can work on together. If you would rather meet in person, we can arrange that as well. This will also offer you the opportunity to interview me. This is very important, I encourage you to ask anything you would like to know.
After spending some time together, if we choose to move forward, we will find a convenient time to have our first session. If I am currently not a good fit for you, I'll be more than happy to help you find someone who is.
I am very passionate about therapy. It is a tremendous gift for me to be part of one's healing and transformation, that many times, happens right before my eyes. I get to see that every day! I feel very grateful and humbled to be a part of this sacred and life changing work.
I would be honored for the chance to work with you.
