Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
The presence of emotional symptoms in one's life is an invitation to investigate unconscious patterns and early programming, and to create more fulfilling patterns for the present. I use modern "energy psychotherapies", as well as reflection on early life events, to empower a shift in one's way of feeling about oneself, relating to others, and managing life's challenges. I am comfortable with short term work to deal with a specific issue, or long term depth work whose goal is personal transformation. I have experience dealing with recovery from childhood abuse, abusive family backgrounds, and trauma. I speak Spanish fluently, and have lived in Central America for an extended period of time. Because I have negotiated many transitions in my own life, I am able to accompany those dealing with their own transitions. I bring a respectful, compassionate presence to the challenging work of personal growth and psychotherapy.
