Marriage & Family Therapist, PhD, MDiv, MFT
Personal issues often show up in relationships where we get caught in freeze, fight, or flight reactions. Friendships, colleagues, family, and intimate partners are our best mirrors leading to effective personal work in therapy. My experiential three-fold model of problem solving integrates mind, body, and emotions. We begin with the description of a problem or struggle, identify associated emotions, and locate the way the issue is held somatically. This may develop into a visual or symbolic representation with which one can dialogue, apply insight, antidote and release, or reveal deeper targets that need to be reprocessed.
