Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I assist my clients in the direct experience of something new for themselves; to grow and nourish the pieces of self that have been unseen or neglected, and to heal old wounding that inhibits living an expansive and joyful life. When we learn to be in honest and loving relationship with ourselves, we by extension learn to be in honest and loving relationship with other aspects of our lives: work, spouse, children, friends, community. Growth happens as we assimilate our life experiences in a natural way, and we come to understand these experiences in therapy. Therapy is an opportunity to create the life you want to live. We will explore all of the things that frustrate and block your growth, remove these obstacles, and build resources for new patterns to emerge.
