Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
You may be seeking help with personal or interpersonal issues, with psychological or spiritual difficulties, with an overwhelming change or a new dilemma. Together, we will explore your questions and ease your pain within the safety of a nurturing and sheltering therapeutic relationship, in which you can feel safe and deeply listened to. I bring to the therapeutic relationship 20 years of experience and knowledge and an open, empathic and accepting presence, in which you can feel safe enough to undertake this journey of transformation, healing and of a deeper home-coming. As a body-oriented Jungian psychotherapist and expressive arts therapist working with individual adults and couples, I weave together depth psychology, transpersonal psychology and somatic awareness. If desired, I will guide you in engaging in sand play, embodied dream work, movement and other forms of creative expression, adding to our verbal explorations these non-verbal imaginative languages which allow you to “speak” in color, movement and images. I believe that the relationship we develop will help you gain a renewed sense of aliveness and meaning and a growing ability for intimacy and joyful, creative engagement with yourself and your loved ones, with your own pursuits, with others and with the earth.
