My Approach to Helping

I have a passion for working with men and women to help them navigate through their life challenges to grow and become more aware of their innate WHOLENESS within. I work as a facilitator and guide to assist you in uncovering your uniqueness and untapped potential.

So often people come to therapy with a layer of self-judgment about their issues. I find it life-affirming to teach you self-acceptance, compassion, and awareness so that you can relax into an open, self-loving space from which true healing and wholeness can emerge.

My passion is awakening your to your innate healing capacities and assisting you on your journey of self-discovery and awakening. I integrate mindfulness and body-based psychotherapy techniques into my practice to address the wellness of the whole self. I believe, "To fully engage in our lives, we must be connected to and balanced in body, mind and spirit."

More Info About My Practice

My psychotherapy practices integrate body, mind, and spirit. I will teach you to nurture self-compassion, non-judgment, and deep acceptance of all your thoughts, feelings, sensations, and experiences. This inviting and loving approach teaches you that "what you resist, persists" and gently, but deeply allows you to experience the wholeness that lies beneath your chattering mind. Whether the chattering mind is believing anxious or depressive thoughts or traumatic histories, there is a way through the noise of the body and mind to a place of inner peace and potent creativity--always present, always within your self.
