Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
As a Somatic Psychotherapist, people seek me out because I work differently. Maybe you are no longer interested in just talking. Maybe you are tired of getting stuck in one way of seeing yourself. Or maybe you already know yourself in a more dynamic way and want to expand your range in living it. In other words, to further develop your capacity in the conversation between your mind and your body. People who work with me are interested in developing new ways of experiencing themselves. My role is to provide the scaffolding in your development. Because I incorporate getting to know yourself from the inside out, from how you “live” yourself physically in the moment, you are able to develop new capacities for moving through the pleasant and not so pleasant experiences in your life. People come when they think they are ready and even when they think they are not. Something in you knows you don’t need to be ready, that you only need the desire to know yourself differently. This is where our work together begins. Come join me and let’s see what’s possible! My orientation is based in Formative Psychology, with a healthy dose of evolutionary perspectives. I specialize in working with individuals and couples who, first and foremost, are breathing (a requirement!); yet miss a feeling of aliveness (depression), who experience confusion and uncertainty in creative self expression (anxiety), who have difficulty with intense emotions of grief or anger, and those recovering from traumatic life events.
