My paradigm for psychotherapy is a client-centered approach, with an emphasis on soulwork—exploring and developing spiritual meaning in your life—and artmaking as a spiritual practice.
You may be seeking psychotherapy for one of two basic reasons: You're struggling with issues that feel like more than you can deal with alone; or you wish to discover something deeper within yourself or deepen your connections with others. As a psychotherapist, my role is to help you find your own answers.
You may think of psychotherapy as a relationship between a psychotherapist and a client. In my paradigm, however, psychotherapy really is about your relationship with yourself. Entering into psychotherapy is like embarking on a journey to discover your most authentic self. It requires a sense of adventure and a willingness to trust the process. No one can make this journey for you; you must do this work for yourself, but you need not do it by yourself. As your therapist, I will walk the path with you—as a facilitator, guide, and perhaps trusted confidante.
I believe we create our reality by what we think, say, and do—both individually and collectively. The more you come from a place of conscious intention, compassion, and equanimity, the more you experience a sense of well-being in yourself and in your relationships with others.
I will help you work from the inside out, bringing your thoughts, words, and actions into integrity with your soul’s purpose, helping you to live a creative, connected, meaningful life.
