Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
"I most often work experientially- meaning, rather than just talking about an issue, we will mindfully bring it into present awareness where the automatic, unconcious reactions are fully noticed. This leads to more possibilities, more empowerment, less suffering for my clients. I work in a number of different ways, depending on your needs. I often use the principles and methods of Hakomi Body-Centered Psychotherapy, Internal Family Systems, or Sandtray, to help you disengage from the patterns that interfere with a more genuine connection with yourself and with others. I supervise MFT Interns who are trained in Somatic Experiencing. I also continue my training with Kathy Kain, treating developmental and chronic traumas with somatic and relational methods. I work collaboratively, compassionately and mindfully to help free you to find that: "You have a source inside you, a cool spring." This peaceful aliveness is your best resource for your health and happiness. My clients report that they love their newfound sense of freedom. "
