I like working with people who recognize that they want or need to change something in their lives that they haven't yet figured out how to do by themselves. This includes people who feel they are stuck creatively-- working on a particular project that just doesn't move forward. Sometimes it is a question of what needs to change, as well as how to make that happen. While this process requires work that only they can do, therapy gives them a place to learn ways to do this work, using cognitive and experiential techniques.
All change happens in the present. There is all the time needed available at any moment, it is not ruled by clock time. Sometimes it feels quick, sometimes not. You do what you can in the time you have. You feel your way through. Change is experienced.
I use mind-body techniques: embodied imagination, brainspotting, and 1:1 constellation work with individuals who want to overcome imbalances in how they are living their lives, experience less anxiety, overcome reduced interest in life, address problems they carry from the past.
