Are you ready to find new ways of relating to yourself and others? Therapy can help you understand old patterns of fear and pain that stand in your way of living a more enlivened life. I am a warm, caring, and interactive therapist who works in a collaborative way to help you find new ways of thinking about --- and connecting with --- yourself and others. I provide a comfortable, inviting, non-judgmental space where you can enjoy the satisfactions of self-discovery while exploring new ways of interacting with others. As you understand yourself better, strenghten your ability to manage strong emotions, and bring forward your authentic self, you will naturally let go of old patterns of relating to and thinking about yourself and others. While my work is primarily insight-oriented, I also see value in providing clients with practical tools that can help them make immediate change in their lives.
You may want to ask yourself these questions:
Do you like yourself? Do you have confidence in yourself? Does your life flow spontaneously from within according to your own needs and passions rather than from someone else's needs and expectations? Do you generally know what you feel and think or do you feel somewhat disconnected from your inner life? Do you have trouble moving forward in your life?
In your relationship with your friends, partner, or spouse, do you keep arguing about the same things over and over without making progress toward a resolution? Do you avoid conflict at all cost, choosing to say nothing about your upsets, only to find resentment festering just beneath the surface? Or perhaps you have given up altogether and have simply withdrawn from interacting much at all.
These are the things we'll be curious about together. I invite you to the journey that is therapy. It is an invitation that extends to all parts of you --- especially the rejected, frightened, sad, and angry parts --- for in welcoming and understanding all parts of yourself, you can live a life of greater vitality and satisfaction.
