My Approach to Helping

The clinicians in our practice approach healing with a holistic and individualized mindset. We believe all elements need to align and be integrated in order for true healing to take place. Elements include mind, body, spirit, and possibility. The mind can become rote and stuck in a loop. We can become disconnected from our body and have poor awareness of our physical sense of the world. Our spirit can suffer from lack of mindfulness and nourishment. Without the ability to focus on what is possible, we can become hopeless and stagnate.

What I Usually Need to Know to Help

Above all else, I need to know the willingness of the client to be courageous and daring in confronting the not so pretty things.
Where in the body do they store their emotions and trauma?
What feels safe to the client? This helps to assess the elements of support needed. How they feel about their possibility of healing and growing dictates the resources available.

The Duration and Frequency of Therapy

For me, as a clinician, venting is seen as a waste of time. My intentions are not lifetime clients. I want to support the peeling away of layers and restructuring of how the client navigates in the world.
