In practicing psychotherapy for over 20 years, I have found continual reward in being able to help my patients heal from emotional and relational wounds, to nurture a stronger and healthier voice to their emotional life, establish more adaptive relational patterns, and to nourish a stronger sense of self.
In my practice I see adolescents, and adults of all ages. Many people who seek treatment with me are looking for healing from the effects of early childhood events, present day situational stressors, or on-going issues related to depression, anxiety, loss, trauma, intimacy and relationship concerns, and general issues related to self esteem.
Patients I work with are often interested in emotional healing with a focus on an in-depth exploration of emotional and relational issues, gaining insight into the underlying root causes of symptoms and concerns, and finding more adaptive ways of going through the world.
Providing a safe, empathic environment are only a few of the many essential ingredients in establishing a secure therapeutic relationship, and something that is greatly valued in this process of self discovery.
The process of psychotherapy can offer meaningful emotional healing, in-depth understanding, and psychological working through of all that has had an impact on your relationship to your self, your physical and emotional wellbeing, and relationship to others. Through insight and a deeply felt connection to ones emotional life, there is opportunity to develop new and more conscious/adaptive ways of living, coping, and relating so as to reduce suffering, and to improve overall quality of day to day living.
In certain cases, mindfulness based meditation, visualization, and relaxation techniques are offered to assist with being more accepting, conscious, present and connected to your self, your body/mind, to others, and to your life in general. With conscious mindfulness based attention, and resulting integration of the body/ mind/ feeling, there can be an experience of emotional grounding, centeredness, and general enhancement in the quality of your life.
