Healing the wounds of the past, coping with the difficulties and challenges of the present and navigating the path to healing and wholeness can be a confusing and difficult journey. A trusted guide along the way can be invaluable in helping bring clarity, hope and a sense of direction and purpose to your life.
My approach to psychotherapy is transformative and holistic, with an emphasis on the integration of mind, body and spirit. I specialize in treating stress, anxiety and depression naturally by using a combination of talk therapy, mindfulness, meditation and somatic (body-oriented) therapy. Within this specialty I help clients to identify how diet, exercise and spiritual practice can improve health and well-being, and bring balance to their lives. I am a certified meditation teacher and trained in Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) and the Hakomi Method.
The foundation of my work is a therapeutic relationship that is built on trust, acceptance, understanding, and compassion. My approach is influenced by transpersonal and existential psychology which incorporates the spiritual dimension of ourselves and explores meaning and purpose in our lives. In our sessions, I will help you to identify and attain your goals, increase self-acceptance, self-compassion and self-love, bring awareness to unconscious patterns that are no longer serving you, develop coping skills to better face the challenges of your life and help you create more conscious and fulfilling relationships.:
