My Approach to Helping

The heart of my approach is self-acceptance. I am passionate in my belief that what truly allows us to live full, happy lives is by discovering who we really are. Very few of us are fortunate enough to grow up in families where we are allowed to unfold into our natural being. Instead, most of us have layers of programming and conditioning that came from family, community, culture, religions, often extorting us to be other than who we truly are. Our work together would be about unblocking the programming and allowing you to discover your true Self.

My work is to help you to feel safe and supported so that old patterns and habits that no longer serve can be released, trauma healed and awareness grown. And while self-acceptance is the core of my approach, empowerment is the goal. That when we are firmly grounded from knowing, accepting and loving who we are, then we really do step into our power.

For me, the model is this: When we don't accept parts of ourselves, we hide it from others. This creates distance and stops us from real intimacy (intimacy being defined as being able to openly and vulnerably share with another). When we learn to communicate with honesty and an ability to speak to our inner emotional experience, then we can achieve real intimacy with others.

More Info About My Practice

I call my approach Holistic because for me it really is about the mind-body-soul connection. And that the body part, what is called Somatics, is the most powerful but for many the most difficult work. Most of us have all sorts of trauma locked in our bodies, and it is powerful and deeply healing to do the somatic work that releases those traumas. And to experience the greater freedom, ease of being and openness that comes from those releases.

My Role as a Therapist

I am very dedicated and passionate about the work I do. I still consider it the greatest blessing of my life to have found a career doing something that I love.

I see my role as your therapist as someone who will first and foremost be non-judgmental, accepting and encouraging. And that I am fully present and available. But most importantly I feel, I am very authentic and real. Some people prefer a very hands-off, just sit there and listen approach. I am more interactive and engaging. For me, a lot of the best work happens in the relationship between therapist and client.
