During this time I am working exclusively online via the ZOOM video platform
I emphasize MINDFULNESS as a core tool that enables the individual to become more connected to themselves in order to access their inner guidance. So much of our struggles with suffering stem from our disconnection with ourselves.
If you practice meditation and or have ever tried to integrate meditation as a tool in your life, I also support individuals to cultivate this powerful yet simple tool. More than just mindfulness, meditation offers a new way of operating in this world, one that I believe provides for openings; openings that allow for more space and freedom, and ease.
Along with mindfulness, I gently guide individuals toward the development of SELF-COMPASSION.
I am trained in Internal Family Systems (IFS); https://ifs-institute.com/, a model developed to assist the individual to become more connected with the different parts of themselves. Like mindfulness, IFS is a powerful tool that can increase ease and ultimately allow for more space for living fully in one's life.
I am also trained in Somatic Experiencing (SE); https://traumahealing.org/, a healing modality that focuses on healing through connection to oneself using the wisdom of the body. Both IFS & SE are my primary modes of helping individuals connect inside and bring self compassion to one's vulnerable parts. In addition to SE, I am in the process (completing in 2022) of completing a 2 year training in Hakomi, an experiential Somatic Psychotherapy method of working with individuals. https://hakomiinstitute.com/about/the-hakomi-institute
Narrative Therapy is one alternative approach to change I use to enable individuals to rewrite their stories, and find their voice that will enable them to move forward towards their healthiest state of being. The narrative approach is powerful in that it targets ones' life challenges by first identifying the stories that are holding one back. Then together we work on changing (rewriting) the story to better serve one's ultimate goal of a full and abundant life.
Overall I tend to integrate many different styles of therapy and choose to listen to the individual (consciously and unconsciously) to determine the approach that might work best. I believe the more tools and therapeutic approaches I am trained in, the stronger my ability to provide whole health and wellness for the individuals I work with.
