I can relate to many of my clients' internal and external conflicts having reconciled similar ones in my own, personal and professional, therapeutic education and experience.
In my twenties I began practicing yoga and meditation. Perhaps this was the beginning of my self-growth and therapeutic journey - although I certainly wouldn't have called it that at the time. About a decade later I began a more conscious/official self-growth period with my own personal work with psychotherapy and bodywork. I benefitted so significantly from these endeavours, and learned to love and appreciated the processes so much, that I started education and training and became a psychotherapist. That was twenty years ago. I am still excitedly, learning and growing.- mostly from my work, my clients, ongoing education and life. I am looking forward to the next twenty - and to possibly meeting and working with you.
Relief! Stressful relationships (personal, family, work), depression, anxiety, anger, grief, loss and conflict are some of the things that I support my clients around in order for them to find relief, clarity and well-being.
Often there is a connection (or lack thereof) between body and mind, or heart and head that is ill-serving. I can help you with being present; which is where the bodymind awareness-connection is accessible. I find that being present, with oneself and others, is the only place from which effective, conscious, lasting choices and changes can be made. I have 18 years experience as a psychotherapist and bodyworker and have worked with many different clients, personalities and age groups.
... bodywork which focuses on physical change and de-emphasizes meaning is as one sided and unintegrated as psychotherapy that ignores body processes.
