Depending on what’s alive in the room, there are lots of other things we can try; expressive arts and music, somatics and breathwork, dreamwork, sand tray, and play therapy are all possible.
Exploration into our inner process doesn’t have to be a lonely journey. I'll walk with you as you start to discover who you really are, and advocate for you along the way. We don’t have to get into the thick of it right away, in fact, I encourage you to find a pace that feels comfortable for you! I'll advocate for that, too. New relationships take time to build trust. Sticking to your sense of timing is important to this working! My approach is thoughtful, grounded and with an unwavering presence. We won’t shy away from topics that society deems taboo.

Playful creativity, dreamwork, trauma education, and expressive arts can help us reclaim lost parts of ourselves and renew vitality.
Where has all the fun gone? Does that seem like an irrelevant question when we are drowning in troubles? Or could it be the essential one? When we lose ourselves to conditioned fear and pain and self -limiting beliefs, we lose that crucial access to our authentic desires, needs and natural creative power. Through play and wonder we can rediscover these buried treasures and permit them to guide us on a course of deep choice-rich fulfillment.

Feeling lost, abandoned, misunderstood, or exiled can lead to a disconnection from the soul. When we feel like no one wants us, we begin to abandon ourselves. We all have parts we dislike, often as a result of harmful messages we internalized from our families and society. The darkest parts of ourselves are often the most frightening, and consequently, the most rejected and ignored. It's in the darkness where we find pieces of ourselves we left behind, pieces that long to be loved and accepted. I’m here to tell you that every part of you is welcome in our work together. You are not alone, and you don't have to hide anymore.

Analytical psychology emphasizes completeness, not perfection. Because psychological insight and self-knowledge are essential for health and vitality, it's lucky our psyches respond favorably to attention and reflection! Positive, effective, long lasting change is created. Research shows nightly dreams provide a running commentary on everyday life. Dreams anticipate, sometimes warn, and often help in resolving problems. They help you relate to the "rest of you", the part that operates out of awareness, sometimes causing symptoms, or taking over and becoming destructive. These parts appear increasingly frightening when pushed away.

Sometimes we find ourselves in a valley, feeling depleted and uninspired. We realize we have been stuck in the same cycles, having exhausted all of the tools that once worked and unsure why change feels impossible. Sometimes we just need someone to see the best in us, to hold hope when we're barely hanging on. Therapy shouldn't be something we dread, but rather an opportunity to feel encouraged and poured into, inspired and deeply understood.
