I love my work. I see therapy as a sacred space and a unique relationship, offering hope and healing for those who are carrying pain in their heart, their psyche and their soul. It takes courage to enter that space for the grace of healing to occur, so I am committed to establishing a sense of safety for clients. I provide a space of deep listening and honest reflection.
I partner with clients in what is often a very difficult period in their lives. The treatment plans are designed to integrate verbal counseling, CBT (cognitive-behavioral techniques), and instruction in the simple healing techniques of yoga and meditation. This empowers clients to make strong progress and truly claim their happiness through their therapeutic work.
This approach is especially effective for clients who are:
Seeking alternatives to pharmaceutical treatments for anxiety and depression
Have extra-sensitive constitutions, especially with history of abuse or trauma
In recovery from substance abuse and are hesitant to begin pharmaceutical treatment
Motivated to work their way off of a medication, if appropriate
Continuing on a medication, these techniques can complement that treatment (with monitoring by a physician)
Experiencing treatment-resistant depression (when several different medications have been prescribed and depression is still present)
Searching for a sense of destiny and purpose in life
Looking to become more creative
Clients typically make long-term lifestyle changes that promote well-being and enjoy more satisfying, conscious relationships. I consider it a privilege to sit with clients in the sacred space of psychotherapy. You deserve the help and healing, as happiness is your birthright.
