Individual and Couples Therapy
Experience growth and new possibilities. Often in the course of our lives we develop strategies or assume roles that may now limit us. Interpersonal difficulties, anxiety, depression, or other emotional distress can stem from these patterns. However, in the present we can discover new options for expressing our self and finding greater satisfaction.
I use focused present awareness (mindfulness) and other techniques, supported by our relationship, to help you more deeply connect with yourself. Emotional conflicts and barriers are explored in a way that allows self-limiting core beliefs to be dispelled. Self-acceptance, healthy boundaries, increased intimacy, more vitality, and clarity of direction are developed.
My approach is gentle and caring, yet focused and powerful. Clients often experience significant change in a short time. I have trained extensively and am certified in Hakomi Therapy, a mindfulness based psychotherapy. I also have specialized training and experience in career counseling, working with persons with disabilities, and alcohol and drug dependency counseling.
