About My Clients
I warmly invite anyone who is interested in learning more about themselves to work alongside me while we determine how to achieve the goals you are interested in achieving. We will take a journey back to the origins of your belief system in order to determine what coping mechanisms you may have developed and how your relationship patterns have emerged over time.
My Background and Approach
I am a Psychotherapist, a former educator and a mother to grown children. Every one of these experience have lead to to better understand how to relate to others. I believe that we are all affected by our past and that it is helpful to recognize what part our history plays in our lives. I place an emphasis on learning how to live in the present in order to become more self aware. I also challenge my clients to become familiar with their body and how it responds to the world around them and I believe it is crucial to find compassion for ourselves in order for change to take place.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
I have determined that most of us are incredibly creative and have developed the most ingenious ways to keep ourselves safe from pain and suffering in our lives. Therapy is a way for us to determine what these methods consist of and if it is time to re-examine their usefulness. It is necessary to view ourselves with compassion when we are in the process of change in order to make it possible for us to strive for this shift in what has become familiar and safe to us.
