Why Therapy?

What does it feel like to be stuck, worried, or uncertain of your life's direction? You've hoped that somewhere inside you there's tremendous potential, but right now you aren't certain how to connect with it. Feeling this way can be especially scary when it impacts your ability to fulfill, or even identify, your heart's desires. Getting in touch with difficult feelings can be transformative, and it often feels more meaningful when you explore them with a trusted therapist. Together, we will softly challenge those feelings and beliefs, while mapping out a clear path towards renewed harmony with the world.

As a therapist, I offer a caring heart, the ability to hear you as you want to be heard, and an intuitive sense to know where you are stuck within yourself.  I will rarely tell you what you should do but will ask questions that help lead you back to yourself. I have a well rounded approach to therapy, drawing from my training in psychology, my education in the arts, and my years practicing Vipassana meditation.


How Will I Get There?

I believe that many of our issues can be traced back to early wounding, and the emotional and cognitive strategies we developed to deal with those wounds. Furthermore, we have a yearning to find meaning and purpose in our lives.

I will:

  • Meet you where you 'are', not where I think you should be

  • Bring compassion into our work together

  • Practice non-judgement; I will not try to view your situation as positive or negative, but rather look at what it has to teach you

  • Communicate my trust in the wisdom of you

 Areas of experience:

  • Shame

  • Anxiety

  • Self-esteem Issues

  • Depression

  • Co-Dependence

  • Anger

  • Psycho-Spiritual Issues

  • Emotional causes of pain

Ultimately the purpose of each of your experiences is to connect you back to yourself.  It's your inner self asking to be heard and experienced.   I want to help you with that!

 

The potential of your world can be awakened in an instant
