I offer a compassionate approach to psychotherapy which values the uniqueness of each individual and facilitates growth, change, and healing. The process encourages the development of individuation, relatedness, balance, and wholeness and draws largely upon the practice of mindfulness. ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy), EMDR, meditation, guided imagery, music, dream work, and spiritual exploration may be utilized as appropriate. I bring life experience, experience in the musical arts, training and experience as a psychotherapist, and a fascination with and reverence for the human journey to the process. You can always expect deep listening and true presence in our sessions together.
Because of my experience as a professional musician, I bring a unique perspective to the treatment of performance anxiety for musicians and other performers. Mindfulness, EMDR, visualization, relaxation, and many other techniques are utilized and taught in sessions related to this issue.
If I can be of service to you or someone you care about, please call or email for information, assistance, or an appointment.
