This website is intended as a brief introduction only;
I trust that for more detailed information, and to get
a feel for whether I am a good match for you as a therapist,
you will contact me directly. A quality therapy
experience includes developing a relationship between the
client and a competent practitioner, one in which the client
comes to feel trust, safety and comfort with the clinician. As
such, I welcome all inquiries, because I respect your process
in finding someone you feel is a good fit for you.
Why “holistic” psychotherapy?
To me, holistic means the union of body, mind, spirit,
and emotions. In other words, I see you as more
than your problems, more than a diagnosis. I see
you as a whole person, and I see myself as a guide and
a witness in your healing process. My approach
is collaborative, partnering with my clients to address
their goals, starting from a place of compassion and
acceptance. My intention is to remain as present
with you as I can be. My training as a Licensed
Mental Health Counselor was based in traditional ‘talk’ therapy,
however I may also incorporate modalities such as mindfulness,
yoga and other body-based therapies, and expressive arts
therapies, depending on a client’s needs and interests. Together
we can decide what approaches are the best fit.
Healing typically involves some discomfort – this
is part of the natural growth process. My goal
is to create a safe, supportive environment for your healing
process, in order for you to move through that discomfort,
and to get on track towards reaching your full potential. I
believe that we all have the answers inside – and
sometimes we need a little guidance to help find them.
