Every moment that we open to the present with fresh eyes, without importing our past, or anguishing about what could happen to us in the future, we have the opportunity to change the direction of our lives.
I hold a safe space for you to heal, develop and transform. I bring wisdom and presence from more than 28 years, working with individuals, couples and groups. The alliance we create together is the bedrock from which we explore what is in the way from living a fulfilled and inspired life, and one in which you meet your expressed goals. When I hold to a structure, and stay connected to you, you will find you have more will and the courage to meet such experiences as the turbulence of transition, the grief from loss, conflict in relationships, or the resistance for change.
In our sessions, I will:
Listen and advocate for your unspoken or unseen needs and wants that live in the shadows
Bring to light what is often hidden, leading you to voice parts of yourself unrealized
Provide tools to help you let go of old behaviors that keep you from moving forward in a positive way
Together, we will:
Explore what’s most meaningful and what inspires you to live fully
Identify where you are stuck in old patterns of thinking which keep you from engaging alternative choices that serve your best interests
Reframe your life story, whereby you are the author of an emerging narrative rather than being a role in a fixed story
What is my therapeutic background?
I am informed by the practice of deep inquiry, mindfulness training, psychodynamics, systems-centered theory, attachment theory, neurobiology, the Enneagram, as well as body/somatic awareness. These practices will help you better understand and integrate your thoughts and feelings to process anxiety and heartbreak, get unstuck, and maximize joy, creativity, and productivity.
How do you get started?
If you are an individual, or in a couple or partnership, looking for support and guidance through a challenging situation or life transition, or you are just ready to move in a new direction, I will work with you to achieve your goals.
