As a Jungian and transpersonal psychotherapist I will use a variety of techniques to work with you.Your feelings of depression, anxiety, or overwhelm will be helped through learning techniques of self-soothing, mindfullness, meditation, and new ways to think through your problems. I believe in the power of your personal narrative and the imagery of your dreams and fantasies as ways to help you explore your own inner truths. I am trained to follow your lead and to pick up on the slightest clues in your telling and retelling of your life, your issues, your struggles.I am interactive in my style.
Let's work together to help alleviate your suffering from personal crisis. My techniques of EMDR, meditation and thought restructuring will help you to relieve your stress, nightmares, distress, self-defeating patterns. Suffering from depression/ anxiety I am trained in cognitive/ behavioral therapy to help you self-sooth and alter thinking patterns.
After 33 years as both a trained artist and Depth psychotherapist, I am uniquely able to work with your imagery, your dreams, fears and insecurities and fantasies to help you open your life. We will use meditation and the power of mindfulness as part of our daily practice.
