Therapy could be the key to open your compassionate process of accepting yourself and expanding your mental and heartfelt capacities. Moving at your pace and preference, we explore and identify your emotional, mental and relationship patterns that may seem bewildering or intense now, but with an open and patient perspective, I give you the space to validate, reframe and shift those patterns that no longer serve you. Ultimately, your willingness to meet any challenge or aspiration is a profound act of self-reflection rooted in courage that ripples out into how you live, relate and create in the world.
I specialize in somatic (body sensing) explorations from a yogic perspective and Buddhist mindfulness-based practices. This process is also informed by narrative therapy, cognitive behaviour therapy and dialectical behaviour therapy. You also have an opportunity to explore myth, active imagination and dreams.
Your sessions focus on your unique values and perspective. They are creative collaborations to support you in your self-understanding to heal with the challenges of change, stress, anxiety, aging, trauma, grief, loss, love and life mysteries. I see you as the architect of your philosophical or spiritual perspective willing to decide what works best for you.
