"What is within you that longs to come forth, what waits for you to say Yes?" In my work with clients we work together as a team to create a mutual, shared space of compassion, caring and healing. In this space, problems are explored together, losses and hurts are held together. Where there is trauma, it is transformed through bodily-centered somatic therapy and EMDR. I bring a wide array of therapeutic techniques, from ancient wisdom traditions to cutting edge neurobiology, to support your healing and provide practical skills for reaching your goals. Whatever difficulties you face - healing is the rule, not the exception.
In a session we will talk and, if you are willing, we may drum or paint, draw or shape clay, meditate, laugh, play, hum, read poetry. You will learn how to understand and regulate your own neural states. I may lead you in meditation or guided visualization to help you bring soothing to anxious states and vitality to depressed states.
I offer compassion-based therapy which focuses on what's right and good in you and helps you reconnect with your best and truest self. I am now offering telehealth and outdoor, safe distance sessions. If you would like to talk and see if we might make a good team, please contact me - I'll be delighted to hear from you.
