The most important factor in a therapy relationship is the relationship itself. It is my task to be available, open and supportive as the person seeks to put into words what he/she is experiencing and to work through the negative effects or life experiences, as well as lifting to the fore each person's gifts, strengths and unique perspectives. It is imperative, therefore, that we establish a relationship of trust primarily by noting how past experience may have helped or hindered one's natural self-expression and ability to actualize one's true self.

You’re a compassionate person. You’re there for your friends and family. But there’s a disconnect between how you are with others and how you treat yourself. You’re suffering. But instead of meeting your suffering with compassion, you suffer further under a harsh inner critic that you can’t seem to get rid of.

Sometimes we don’t trust enough to share and sometimes we do not know how to communicate what we are feeling, when we are feeling and why we are feeling. Embrace gives us the opportunity to be open to the therapeutic process, embrace it like a warm hug of comfort. To Embrace the process we must first start with the Problem.

I believe therapy is a way to enrich life and develop a secure connection in a space free of judgement and met with compassion. I strive to provide lasting change from the inside out. I believe in treating the whole person, mind, body, & spirit. I believe it is important to pay attention to emotion, non-verbal communication, somatic expressions and non-conscious processes. Memories play a part in how our brains process and store meaning to life. Misinterpreted meaning becomes internalized and presents unwanted feelings/thoughts/behaviors. As we work together, we process memories leaving those undesired mind/body connections behind.
