My Ideal Client

Some clients come to me specifically because of my background in Astrology. The planetary archetypal cycles offer valuable insight into the underlying dynamic of your current experience. Voice Dialogue is another modality that people seek me out for. In these sessions we can help you find integration of your differing inner selves leading to greater choice and personal effectiveness. Dreams can be cultivated and a rich conversation with your inner wisdom is available there.

My Approach to Helping

An atmosphere of sincere warmth, support, and acceptance is essential for deep healing. I am ready to meet you there. My training includes both spiritual, intuitive, and body centered modalities. That helps me to have a holistic perspective to work from. I have a background in Eco-psychology, Dreamwork, SandPlay, Mindfulness, Voice Dialogue, Hakomi, and Archetypal and Jungian perspectives. Your confidentiality and trust I hold as a sacred contract. Only under legally mandated situations would any of your confidences be shared.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

Personal Growth has been a lifelong passion for me. Guiding others on this journey requires that I know the territory, and have visited my own depths of the psyche not once, but often. I've found this adventure to be rich and rewarding. So naturally, I love guiding others on their journeys. I bring a lived sense of the challenges, rewards, and sometimes courage required in this work. Continuing the journey by periodically entering therapy myself enhances my therapeutic knowledge and effectiveness. This is something I think is very important for therapists to do. I like to say "You wouldn't go to a dentist who doesn't brush his own teeth, would you?” Other heart felt interests and values include meditation, women's empowerment, civil rights, and immersing oneself in the beauty and healing power of nature.

Issues I Treat

Specialties

  • Personal Growth External link

    Personal growth often occurs when you acquire a deeper and more integrated sense of your needs and how to meet them. Personal growth can take many forms. It might be that a successful relationship, a new job, or additional education moves you into a larger and more confident sense of self. Whether you approach it by gaining outer or inner experience you are likely to see improvements in many areas of your life. Greater inner satisfaction may then produce greater outer success and vice versa.
