Are you tired of continually trying to control, change, get rid of, or avoid painful thoughts, feelings, sensations and experiences? If so, together we will explore ways to move beyond these temporary relief strategies towards relating and responding in a more flexible manner. Discover, express and integrate previously unknown parts of yourself, build upon strengths already in place, and work on the past by increasing the vitality of your work on relationships in the present. Together we'll explore what underlies your symptoms, what adaptive need or function they serve, and how symptoms may point toward needed life changes.
I collaborate with clients to develop customized treatment plans for brief and longer term treatment. I incorporate Depth Psychology, mindfulness, cutting edge evidence based practices, mind/body approaches, solution focused, Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy, Acceptance Commitment Therapy, and EMDR.
I work with experiential and imaginal exercises, value driven behavioral interventions, metaphors, symbolism, and dreams to uncover new meaning and possibilities. I am committed to practices that consciously cultivate awareness, acceptance, and encourage a more authentic and vital relationship with self, other, and the world.
