My Approach to Psychotherapy and Counseling

Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves, like locked rooms and like books that are now written in a very foreign tongue. Do not now seek the answers, which cannot be given you because you would not be able to live them. And the point is, to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps you will then gradually, without noticing it, live along some distant day into the answer.
— Rainer Maria Rilke

I provide a safe space for depth work, and a way for you to explore what is true for you and for that which is unfolding in your life. My approach is based on building a trusting relationship so that growth and change may occur.  Support is important for self-understanding, processing feelings, and engaging change.

In our work together, we might engage in any of the following, depending on your preferences and where the therapy takes us:

 

 

  • An exploration of core wounds
  • Use of creative expression
  • Dream work
  • Attention to affect and the emotional world
  • Body awareness and mindfulness practices
  • A Jungian exploration of the archetypes and complexes that impact you
  • An identification of what is important to you symbolically
  • Noticing themes and patterns that appear to provide information for healing
  • Tapping into your personal strengths and gifts
  • The processing of grief and loss
  • An exploration of your spiritual path
  • Approved to provide clinical supervision for professional licensure
