Clients often come in seeking more from life and their connection to it. Most have are awakening to the awareness, that something is ready to change. This can arise from life transition, illness, or a simple change of heart that calls for a new orientation to life. Together, we will help you find your center, a sense of wholeness, your truest self to live from.
What do you love? What moves you? What do you want out of life? What’s not working? Where is it time to say “No!”, reach out for help or let something go. These are all questions to ask when you feel stuck. Complex feelings of overwhelm, confusion and exhaustion can block the way to motivation, clarity and desire. With openness and compassion, we can make room for these feelings as they naturally are, and begin to come home, to the most vital, creative and alive experience of life.
I received my Masters at Naropa University in Transpersonal Counseling Psychology. This contemplative, experiential and embodied education set the tone for a new way to be in the counseling field. I can promise you this work is unconventional in it’s focus on living from the body, honoring intuition and developing self respect that doesn’t see experience as a problem but as a wise guide toward wholeness. After my 5 year long training with a Burmese monk in meditation and 7 years of embodiment training at Hartford Family Institute, self listening and permission to trust aliveness has become my anchor.
In session, we begin to build awareness to retrain the mind to join with the body to experience life in a new and vibrant way. The cooperation of mind and body relieves the stress, anxiety and shut down that can disconnect us from ourselves. As a therapist, I utilize a natural warmth, and spirited-ness in welcoming you to be exactly where you are. We will be guided by what is of interest to you. Therapy is not meant to be drudgery. Actually, the hope, is that you will leave with new clarity and inspiration for life.
