"Don't turn your head, look at the bandaged places. That is where the light enters you." - Rumi

As a psychotherapist with over 30 years of experience, I know that each person I treat is unique.    I have been trained in many modalities of therapy and know that it is essential for the therapist to be sensitive to which type of therapy is right for the client. Typically, when I am able to listen deeply to what is going on in the heart and soul of my clients, we can zone in what precisely needs healing.  My strength as a healer is my passion for understanding what is blocking you and give you that “AHA” moment where you understand and effect powerful and positive change in your life.    I can help you to uncover the healthy self that resides under the painful experiences and relationships that you have endured and eventually see them as blessings.

Methods :

I practice a Client centered approach which means that it is essential to be heard and seen in therapy.  It important for you to be comfortable with me so that we can establish a good and trusting connection.   Then it will be easier for me to find out why you think and feel the way you do.  

Insight Therapy: I want to hear your life story so I can understand what rules you learned growing up and whether those rules make sense now.  We can discover your basic temperament, what your strengths are and how you react under stress. So often when we are in distress we lose our perspective.   With some assistance, you will regain your ability to see the big picture again.  

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy:  You’ll want to learn how your thoughts affect you outcomes.   You will learn to identify negative and untrue thoughts and change them to healing and powerful thoughts. 

Communication Therapy:  I will help you to effectively speak to others so that they can finally hear you.  We will uncover the ways you may be sabotaging yourself from receiving the support and understanding you need.  We will work together to help you ask for what you want in relationship and set boundaries so that others don’t take advantage of you.             

Group Therapy: 

I love to bring people together who I know will help one another.  The real purpose of group therapy is to create a safe place to express our hurts, open our hearts, and practice new skills.  Below are lists of Groups that I have been conducting over the past 2 years.

 



 

- Coming Of Age for Women:  

This is a 10 week group designed to help women explore and transform the shadows of age.  We discover  the tasks and lessons of aging, using midlife fairy tales, music and art therapy.

- Dream Group: 

This Group allows us to understand and use the healing messages that are revealed by our subconscious minds.

- Writing as a Way of Healing Group: 

We overcome writer’s block and heal the relationship with ourselves through spontaneous and insightful writing experiments.
