My client is the expert on my client and my job is to help unlock their innate wisdom. Our troubles are the side effects of adaptations forged by hardship and we can change them, using strengths in ourselves, families and community. Feeling more connected to others involves communication skills, and tolerance for irritation and vulnerability (inevitable in close relationships). Therapy can help you hold your pain differently. You can feel better living with your past, instead of waiting to get rid of it. I help clients to address spiritual roadblocks and to help build a fulfilling and meaningful life, with the pain.

Some of us need help managing strong feelings, but we can learn to accept and tolerate them, too. I support clients' empowerment in their work with prescribers; as clients improve their ability to tolerate, cope and accept distress, using mindfulness and other skills, they may reduce need for medication.

In previous lives I have been a dancer, musician, electrical contractor and enthusiastic student (receiving my BA at 40 and my MA at 53). A common thread through all this has been a curiosity and compassion for what makes us stuck (or able to change!)
