All of us struggle at times with overwhelming events: loss, personal tragedies, life transitions, forms of emotional or physical pain, and relationship difficulties. Given the many stressors we face, we can easily become overwhelmed, stressed out or afflicted by psychological symptoms. Most of the clients I see have already exhausted typical, “common sense” solutions and need to address their difficulties at a deeper, more foundational level, getting to the roots of their problems. I help a person to sort out life’s issues and cope with, manage, and/or resolve difficult psychological issues and symptoms. Through this process a person comes into a different, inner relationship to the challenges they are facing. The therapy process helps a person to find new vantage points as well as resources from within, which are acknowledged and then mobilized to bring about change. This in turn frees one up to lead a more productive, creative, and fulfilling life.
I believe it’s essential to provide a safe, non-judgmental, comfortable environment where we work together to explore the areas in which you are struggling. I provide individualized support based on your goals and aspirations. I utilize a depth psychological framework, along with experiential approaches, such as Focusing, dreamwork, mindfulness or body-based methods of awareness to address problems together. I work well in collaboration with other therapists and modalities. If medication needs to be addressed, or there is adjunctive medical, couple or family work, I find it helpful to work as a team, providing coordinated treatment that is comprehensive and unified.
