Clear, Resolve, Transform. I help clients discover and resolve subconscious causes for emotionaI and behavioral difficulties. The Subconscious controls emotions, desires, memory, habits, thoughts, dreams, and automatic responses. One may consciously understand the value of eliminating problematic emotions, thoughts or behaviors but unless the Subconscious Mind is reached, enduring change is unlikely. I address the underlying subconscious blocks to living a clear and free life. I have effectively treated sexual abuse, trauma, grief, anxiety, depression, phobias, addictions and more. Issues are cleared, clients report being able to function with more energy and clarity. Relationships thrive and lives are transformed.

According to Mental Health America (AMA), before COVID-19, data shows that over the past 3 years there has been a steady increase in the number of youth and adults struggling with anxiety and depressive symptoms and there continues to be an unmet need for individuals to receive proper care. AMA states, since the onset of COVID-19, the number of people looking for mental health services has “skyrocketed.” This past year has been painful for so many on so many different levels. If you're seeking balance amidst a myriad of uncertainties, let's connect. Therapy is not just another obligation. It's a gift to yourself and you deserve it!

I am accepting new cIients. I believe we all have times in our lives when we can become overwhelmed and may need help from another person. If this is your first time seeking help, it can be intimidating to choose a therapist and begin the journey to healing. My goal is to help you explore challenging areas of your life, examine relationships, and support life transitions. I work with clients who are experiencing anxiety, depression, trauma, grief and loss, substance abuse and life transitions. No matter where you find yourself in your life journey, I promise you will be welcomed and provided with compassionate support.

Do you believe there is something terribly wrong with you and you don't understand where it is coming from? Transactional Analysis shows us our personality is formed by age six where the combination of the messages we receive from our parents and how we learned to adapt to those messages form our life script, or pattern of behavior we repeat to get our needs met. The problem occurs when we grow up and the scripted behaviors no longer meet our adult needs, limiting our experiences in life. The script can be changed in order to adjust to our adult needs and desires. I can facilitate this process using Redecision Therapy.

Lets explore your life experience in a new and exciting way. I see suffering as an opportunity to break free from old patterns, habits, and ways of thinking that are not working for you anymore. It's a call from deep inside saying, "something needs to shift". This shift can come from exploring a relationship to a substance that you are using, and the pain, anxiety, depression, or a general sense of not loving your life that may come with it. Your unique journey is here right now, and experiencing it from a nonjudgmental perspective can be a vital ingredient to moving past whatever is holding you back from living your best life.

My ideal client is willing to rethink what therapy looks and feels like - being open to a variety of techniques; collaborating; and engaging body, mind, and emotions, particularly in the outdoors. I conduct experiential outdoor sessions (when weather permits), helping clients in connecting with themselves by grounding in the supportive power of nature. Walking and talking in an outdoor space allows us to engage in an informal environment, while still providing therapeutic benefits.

Offering ONLINE sessions to Colorado/Florida/North Carolina women. It’s really hard to be a woman. We feel like all the pressure is on us and we keep trying so hard to do it perfectly, but life still isn’t going the way we planned. We have the pressure of career, children, keeping our romantic relationship going, finding time for a social life, and then we notice the past we’ve been running from creeps up. It can be exhausting, not to mention overwhelming.

**NOT CURRENTLY ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS** My approach to therapy is through the lens that people are usually just trying to feel “okay” and that this manifests in various ways. Our shared work is in owning the parts of our lives and our selves that we may habitually avoid or reject. I work with individuals to identify the creative ways they have used to block contact from their full experience, whether through substance abuse, codependency, or other subtle or more overt strategies. My style is direct and open, using a here-and-now perspective rooted in mindfulness-based and existential-humanistic theories.

Women feel deeply, love deeply, and hurt deeply. We just do. Even with experiences like grief, trauma and relationship problems women sometimes go years before seeking help. We blame ourselves for how lost we think we are - or for our "brokenness." This is sadly normal but it's not true! That's why you might be seeking a therapist now, to get to the root of why life is feeling painful, possibly unmanageable. You want to uncover what hurts, improve relationships/communication skills and move more confidently in the world!

While experiencing this connection, people are able to gain presence, reflect on experiences and plan for personal maintenance, change and growth.

Experiential Therapy (Pragmatic Therapy) Therapists
If you're looking for Experiential Therapy in Asheville or for an Asheville Experiential Therapy these Therapists provide Experiential Therapy counseling.Experiential therapy is a therapeutic technique that uses expressive tools and activities, such as role-playing or acting, props, arts and crafts, music, animal care, guided imagery, or various forms of recreation to re-enact and re-experience emotional situations from past and recent relationships. The client focuses on the activities and, through the experience, begins to identify emotions associated with success, disappointment, responsibility, and self-esteem. Under the guidance of a trained experiential therapist, the client can begin to release and explore negative feelings of anger, hurt, or shame as they relate to past experiences that may have been blocked or still linger.
