I believe that everyone has within themselves the ability
to tap into their gifts, talents and ways of being that bring health and
wellness and balance more deeply into their lives. This work can be challenging,
but it also carries its own rewards of living a more integrated life. By
exploring one's hopes, dreams, and difficulties, - all parts of life are grist
for the mill – I believe that we have the opportunity to grow more deeply
connected to the healthier parts of our self and experience life more fully.
I use techniques derived from Narrative Therapy, guided
imagery/mediations, the creative arts therapies in a Jungian vein, dream work
and journaling, and encouraging awareness of the body. Our sensory experience is
core to our human experience. Our senses provide us with our first contact with
love, are affected by emotions and behavior – conscious and unconscious, and
shape who we are. How we perceive these experiences can limit or create
opportunities. My hope is that these techniques offer new ways of experiencing
and understanding ourselves.
