Most people come to therapy because life feels somehow limited or stuck. Do you have a sense that "somehow this could be better" but feel like there is no clear idea of where 'better' would be or how to get there? My goal as a therapist is to serve as a compassionate witness, creating a safe space for clients to explore their whole selves - body, mind, and spirit. Together, we can map the territory of your lived experience and find the road that leads to a place of knowing, confidence, and satisfaction.
Somatic and Mindful Approaches
I believe that therapy works best when it includes the whole person. A Somatic approach is one that honors the wisdom of the body. Expect that therapy will include attention to how you feel - not just emotionally, but physically as well. Often, a tight neck is as important a message as a sad thought or an angry feeling. A Mindful approach means that we will take the time to explore your awareness of yourself - to learn to listen to and witness the whole of your experience, including the quiet voices that are so often ignored.
I welcome the whole you. The places of lightness, the places of darkness, and all the grey in between. I welcome your multitude of backgrounds and experiences. I welcome the parts that follow the rules, as well as the rebel parts that march to a different beat. Come just as you are - to discover who you can become.
Client concerns include:
Feelings of Dissatisfaction
I help people who feel their lives are somehow limited, who desire to become more aligned with their own authenticity and integrity. I support exploration of mind and body - of relationships, thoughts, feelings, and behaviors - leading to the discovery of ever increasing love and respect for self and other.
