Theories & Techniques
I implement an eclectic approach based on holistic counseling, body-mind integration, family systems theory (which includes solution-focused and internal family systems therapies), cognitive-behavioral therapy, as well as psycho-educational and narrative therapies. I am greatly informed by the movements of personal empowerment and humanism, mindfulness/consciousness, and holistic (body-mind-spirit) philosophies. I am particularly passionate about and draw extensively from the research in body-mind medicine. I use my 20 years of experience in the profession, as well as my intuitive abilities, sense of spirituality, and creativity to help people create change in their lives.
What to Expect
I believe that people transform and heal when they tap into their own inner sources of intuition, spirituality, and creativity. I believe in sparking people to become aware of the options they have to transform, and to support them in creating a plan of action. I offer a therapeutic and collaborative environment in which people are welcome to explore and act upon connections between their inner and outer resources, their minds-bodies-spirits; and their relationships in order to transform and/or heal their lives in the ways they envision.
My clients are invited to take charge of their own change process as I companion with them for a period of time to help them get unblocked from unproductive patterns in thinking or behaving. Typically, they are open to a combination of traditional and non-traditional forms of therapy as they work toward their personal goals. We together determine the length of treatment. I encourage my clients to take breaks from their growth work to integrate what they’ve learned, and I welcome them to return when they are ready to do more. Many clients return regularly for ‘check-ups’ to stay on track with their emotional goals, just as we go to the doctor yearly to keep our bodies running well.
