Who I work With
I work with amazing people dealing with life’s challenges, who may have tried psychotherapy or other therapies but still feel stuck. Our work together helps them access their own inner resources, and use the other tools that they have to begin to experience moving forward.
Is this you?
*You’re having difficulties in relationships, personal or professional, and wish to explore your interactions in order to find more peace in these experiences.
*You’re are dealing with mental or emotional stress, from illness or from life circumstances, and long to live a more healthy and fulfilling life.
*You’re a meditation practitioner and want tools to explore the feelings, sensations and issues that arise through your practice.
*You’ve experienced trauma and you desire healing in body, mind and spirit so that you can feel more whole and joyful.
*You’re a psychotherapist, a medical or a somatic professional who seeks a mind-body approach to enhance your professional expertise.
*You are well and happy and yet, you long for companionship and guidance in your own growth and evolution.
Individual and Couple Psychotherapy
Every bad feeling is potential energy toward a more right way of being if you give it space to move toward its rightness.
Sometimes what people may be going through individually or in relationships requires the use of interactive processes and psychological techniques. I offer this to individuals and couples, combining deep listening with other creative techniques that I have found to be effective.
Focusing Guidance and Training
Sometimes Focusing students have personal issues that they are stuck with and want to learn how to access their own wisdom to guide them. I show them how to use their own inner guidance to come to some resolve around their situations so they can move forward. I teach Focusing skills to small groups of people. People learn how to heed the whispers of guidance that come to them in a unique bodily-felt way. They begin to apply it in all kinds of circumstances in their lives.
If you want to build a ship, don’t drum up people together to collect wood and don’t assign them tasks and work, but rather teach them to long for the endless immensity of the sea.
