About My Therapy

Personal Statement
Are you sitting on ‘the horns of a dilemma’?  What if you could meet with someone who is adept at eliciting submerged information that will get you off those ‘horns’, helping sort through what keeps you immobilized and looking at outer factors you’re dealing with in ways that expand the possibilities?

I interact fluidly with what you present and home in on your highest aspirations and deepest truths. Doing so affords a sense of relief and energy that brings renewed hope, “the soul’s basal resource… a tough mettle that looks at all available data, then chooses a strong route to the most positive outcome possible”.

My training in EMDR and somatic work helps when subconscious ‘recruitment tactics’ try to sabotage the natural course of change.  These are approached with loving regard, because at one time, they meant to protect you.  Yet we have a tendency to continue to play out such tactics as adults without recognizing when they aren’t needed or no longer working.

Change involves letting go of outmoded tactics, attitudes, and beliefs, while honoring the precious body of your experience. There are many approaches to change, which is the mechanism for weathering transition. It is a wonder of our time that neuroscience is showing us that we have the capacity for change… to actually change our brains and therefore our minds.  My absolute belief in that capacity inspires and enlivens our work in therapy.
