Counseling

The perspective I have on health and healing is deeply rooted in my training in Transpersonal Psychology of which a prime tenet is to view an individual as a whole and see the health in all aspects of their person. This is a perspective that has at its core, acceptance-acceptance of who we are and how we’ve learned to survive in the world. What is understood is that some of these very strategies and defenses we’ve learned to survive, however effective, at some time no longer serve us. It is at this point in a person’s life that she or he can benefit from therapy and from being met and held in presence by a person dedicated and trained to create an authentic space for healing.

My approach to therapy incorporates many different therapeutic theories and practices. I use Gestalt, Systems, and Experiential therapy to help clients move deeply into their experience in the here-and-now to live life more fully. I use Nonviolent Communication to help clients explore their feelings and needs, improving their connection to their self and to others. I also use meditation and mindfulness practices to increase a client’s awareness, helping clients to feel grounded in their self and in the world.
