Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Achieving balance—emotionally, spiritually, and physically—is the key to a fulfilling and successful life. If you are out on a limb clinging precariously, if you have lost your way or are overwhelmed by the journey, I can help you find your way back. Using an eclectic approach that integrates a knowledge of psychology, somatic therapies, Eastern practices, and the creative arts, my intent is first to alleviate current symptoms that prevent you from living a joyous life, and then to uncover their root cause. In this safe, healing environment, maintaining an approach that is person-focused rather than symptom-focused, we explore tangible methods to move toward being a full participant and not a spectator in your own life. As greater awareness is achieved, as you take these new insights into everyday life, old, destructive patterns fall away and new, healthy ways of living emerge. Learning to effectively deal with immediate issues empowers you to be fully self-expressed and creates a harmonious balance between body, mind, and spirit. My ultimate intent is to lead you to awaken and maintain your inner balance, so that you may experience fulfilling relationships, reach your goals and cultivate abundance in all areas of your life. Total health and wellness—the ultimate goal of therapy—is about integrating all parts of self and thus connecting to the world around us, forging more productive personal, marital, familial, and social relationships.
