My Therapeutic ApproachI blend a variety of creative tools and techniques, depending on the needs and personality of the individual. I utilize a personalized, holistic counseling approach to treat all levels of the person; the emotional, psychological, and spiritual.
The following is my general model:
Insight + Reshape Beliefs + Meaning = Wellness
Change is about developing insight; finding a deeper, more compassionate understanding of yourself and those around you. To grow, we all must let go of old, unhealthy ways viewing ourselves, others, and life. When we uncover the beliefs that are no longer helpful and release these mentally, emotionally and physically, change occurs organically. With support and encouragement, a new view of self begins to emerge. We allow and accept our innermost feelings and ideas, which reveals new choices and a caring relationship with ourselves. With new awareness and self-compassion, self-worth grows and one's experience of life becomes richer, fuller. Ultimately, this allows us to uncover new meaning in our personal struggle and to appreciate the life lessons we seek to master.
In sum, my approach fosters deeper awareness, self-acceptance, and inner compassion to bring about a richer, more balanced life. I support and guide individuals to access their innate wisdom and their ability to heal themselves.
