A BLEND OF THEORETICAL APPROACHES
Mindfulness-Centered Somatic Psychotherapy/Gottman Skill-Building/Psychodynamic/Attachment-Based
In most cases, positive change occurs through a reparative relationship with your therapist, with the client gaining insight in a safe and supportive environment and modifying behaviors and beliefs based on past wounds.
I place a high value on mindfulness and body wisdom, and hold a gentle confidence and willingness to walk through rough terrain without knowing the answers. I respect the courage it takes to face the wretchedness that is sometimes characteristic of being human.
With congruence and genuineness, I help clients become more aware of how they organize themselves to face their outer and inner challenges, and provide a broad container for whatever needs to emerge to facilitate healing.
In addition to seeing clients one-on-one, I co-facilitate a group called Heart of Relationship, offering members a real-time examination of the relational habits that can leave them feeling out of control, misunderstood, and alone. Our group offers people the opportunity and safe place to do deep and intentional work, often leading to lasting changes, more connection, more intimacy, and more hope.
I invite your questions—or a simple comfort-level check—either by phone or in person. Tending the garden within requires nurturance, attention, and patience; it is an honor for me to support my clients in this endeavor.
