My Approach to Helping
Occupy your belly. Occupy your life. You've been sleepwalking far too long, haunting around the edges of your life. Ambient addictions, feelings of emptiness, nagging shame, and that unrelenting, critical voice create a layer of static around you.
I provide radical therapy to help you heal from that breakup, that pervasive anxiety, those rocky relationships, those works tensions, your insides and outsides that don't match, or that gray cloud that seems to follow you about. My clients tend to be professionals, but span all walks of life. They are often overt or covert nonconformists, working to find their voice and their place in this world.
As a Harvard-trained and holistic-graduate-school refined psychotherapist, I am an intellectual-holistic mashup, blending the intellectual and analytical with the mindful and embodied. It is a powerful alchemical combination, and involves Jungian, psychoanalytic and psychodynamic methods combined with deep mindfulness. This means we unearth the roots of what ails you, then work to accept and transform these themes in real time, with the body and imagination as guides.
My style is a blend of radical acceptance -- of ALL of your parts and experiences -- and gentle challenge. I challenge you to go deeper, to actualize, and to question your most basic assumptions, always with a backdrop of unconditional compassion.
