Counseling Approach & Philosophy
I approach counseling with a holistic assumption of the interconnectedness of body, mind and spirit. I also assume that there is an innate tendency for clients to grow towards health and wholeness. Rather than labeling old patterns a pathologies, I prefer to recognize them as coping strategies developed as a part of the individual’s attempts for safety and health, which may now be obsolete. In my work I focus on helping clients identify both those patterns that may be holding them back and the skills and resources they have available to become more choice-full in their lives.

I utilize a mindful, body-centered experiential and relational approach. I also pay attention to the systemic nature of interpersonal interaction in relationships and families. Through attention to present moment experience, comes the discovery of beliefs, thoughts, feelings, memories and images that impact daily life in both positive and negative ways. The awareness and corrective emotional experiences in therapy support building resources and adopting more effective patterns.
