How We Work Together
As a therapist, I am here to meet you where you are. It is our work together to identify where that is and where you need and want to go. My work is to help you reconnect to your power and to help you re-establish your relationship to who you really are.
I have no preconceived notions or agendas of how things should go. I provide a framework for your very personal process that is quite individual by nature. What brings you in to see me — why you have decided to reach out for support — will be the guide to move us forward. For me, it’s all about becoming… about self- realization and self-acceptance.
We begin with an assessment of your history and current emotional life, examining and identifying current stressors and possible sources of your discomfort. Our discussions may lead us to examine other aspects of your daily life; e.g., looking at your diet, assessing your level of physical activity, connecting what you feed your body with what you feed your mind and how this affects your overall well-being. Often it seems, how we feel about ourselves (and talk to ourselves) and how we relate to others has a lot to do with how we see ourselves and how we experience our bodies. There is so much information to attain, as we explore this mind/body connection. As we delve into all of this, we will work together to negotiate this “mind- field” of self-defeating thoughts and behavioral patterns, obstructions to thriving and joy. My role is to shine a light on the path of your own knowledge, your inner knowing — reminding you of what you may have forgotten or somehow lost along the way. Through a very integrative approach and process to wellness, you will have the support you need to reestablish your personal power, finding it easier to get out of your own way and find your way back to you. This is our work together.
You really helped me through a rough time of my life ... and I found the mind/body connection and integration of yoga with therapy incredibly helpful, and much more beneficial than my previous forays into more traditional therapy.
