PSYCHOTHERAPY FOR MEN, WOMEN, +
I provide psychotherapy services using evidence-based techniques. I draw from Mindfulness, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Somatic Psychology, and Mindful Self-Compassion. I work with men and women, young adults, and couples.
My areas of expertise include:
People I work with usually come to me not because something is desperately wrong, but because they have the sense that their lives could be better in some way - more fulfilling, more connected, more intimate, or more inspired. Perhaps they feel their relationship could be more connected, or that they are not being themselves in their job, or they want to explore a part of themselves or career path.
In our work together, clients do get to explore these aspects of themselves and their lives in a safe, nurturing, and empowering environment. They learn new ways to navigate their lives, access their intuition, learn the language of their body, and more fully express who they are and what they want. This work can lead to a sense of greater ease in one’s body and a feeling that you are living in harmony with your body, your heart, and your desires rather than feeling controlled, restricted, or in conflict with these.
My style is conversational and relaxed. I use a blend of somatic (or "embodied") and evidence-based psychotherapy techniques to help individuals move through chronic patterns, create better relationships, and reach new levels of performance in their personal and professional lives. Clients are often able to achieve goals that seemed previously unattainable, and to find deeper meaning and purpose in the life they are already living.
Modalities I draw from include Mindful-Self Compassion, Mindfulness meditation, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Emotionally Focused Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Eugene Gendlin's Focusing, Gottman Method, and Emotional Freedom Technique. These techniques have been empirically shown to provide results ranging from reduced stress to increased levels of happiness and well-being, and are incorporated at different times into therapy depending on the needs and goals of the therapy.
A session usually involves a blend of listening and encouragement and practical tools you can use immediately to create changes in your life.
