Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Each of us has the ability to heal ourselves, and most of us need support in being able to do so. The challenges of anxiety, depression, low self esteem, as well as other issues, are often too much to handle alone. I offer a warm, collaborative approach to therapy and will support you in the discovery of your unique wisdom to resolve your challenges. I will support you in moving beyond the patterns that are keeping you stuck, and assist you in finding more satisfaction and enjoyment in your life. I support building greater awareness as well as body-mind-spirit integration. My 35 years of Buddhist practice enhance my ability to create a respectful and safe therapeutic relationship. I specialize in working with women and men in their late 20’s and early 30’s. I graduated with a Masters in Counseling Psychology from the Institute of Transpersonal Psychology, and I am a graduate of the Hakomi method of Experiential Psychology. My training includes working experientially (in the moment) and relationally. I look forward to collaborating with you to develop: - greater self awareness - more satisfying relationships and communication - stronger self appreciation and sense of purpose - clarity for decision making - confidence and wisdom to go through life transitions - insight into spiritual issues - ability to process grief - resolution of trauma - resolution of addiction I work with individuals, couples and families. I see clients during the week and on Saturdays, and offer a sliding scale. Feel free to contact me to set up a 10-minute phone consultation.
