The best therapy always starts with being accurately listened to, so you can feel deeply known. Then as we learn more about yourself, you build your inner awareness of your emotions, thinking patterns and interpersonal processes. I will be with you in each moment, neutrally observing you, and coaching you to do the same for yourself. Watching together instead of judging. Moving your personal narrative into your embodied experience. We then work together applying many tools for change. My therapeutic style supports you, taking your vague desires, or back burner dreams and making them into actionable words, goals, tools.
I am a licensed clinical psychologist with thirty-eight years in practice. Trained in Ericksonian/clinical hypnotherapy, inter-generational family systems, gestalt, EMDR, Gottman Marital Therapy, Complementary Health/somatic, Cognitive behavioral, psychodrama, Rolfing, and mindfulness. Life coaching can be included. Complementary 10 minute initial call.
My website describes 10 areas covering some issues we can work together on: anxiety, depression, family of origin, grief, relationships, boundaries, shame, addictions, integrity and emotions. Ex.: how to communicate emotions is not taught to kids, so everyone just has to adapt whatever style they are given in their first family system. Not working for you?
