The Chinese symbol for CRISIS is the same symbol for OPPORTUNITY.

Psychotherapy is an opportunity to consider when we are at a loss and challenged to see the opportunity in what we are experiencing in life. Therapy with me is a chance to bring healing through increased mindful friendly awareness; finding the light and insight in what seems like an overwhelming dark and difficult place. I seek to join your efforts to nurture attitudes of acceptance and love by using mind-body strategies to tap into your innate intelligence.

My practices are body-mind  based, experiential and partially draw from the spiritual roots of buddhism. Commonly used strategies are yoga and somatic type experiencing, DBT/CBT skills, guided imagery, mediation, journaling and nature therapy. Ultimately together we create a treatment plan with the methods that work for you.

To me inner healing means learning and practicing the skills that create and sustain an inner atmosphere of acceptance, love, awareness, insight, and a sense of connectedness and forgiveness towards oneself and others. When these skills are strong enough, we know intuitively what we need to do to heal and create more balance in our lives.

My background is providing crisis mental health services, intensive inpatient stabilization, Adolescent Alcohol & Drug Abuse Treatment, hospice and grief counseling with children, adults and older adults.

Stay tuned.  I have future plans to form psychotherapy process groups for HSP Highly Sensitive Persons and a Process Painting group. If this is of interest to you please relay that as a group will be formed when there is enough interest.
