    Therapy is an important exchange that aims to help us make use of our mindful and experiential or embodied wisdom. It offers resources and new ways of being to turn seemingly impossible situations, such as life transitions, conflict, or trauma, into ones in which we can find integration and dignity.

    We have great inner resources for healing and for growth. But we need a context in which we feel listened to and heard and within which a new perspective can develop. My method as a psychotherapist is to listen carefully to your dreams, experiences, fears, hopes, and longings, as we work together in your therapy to understand your particular concerns and experiences.

    Despair does not always yield to introspection, reflection, or fretful worry. Our demons, so to speak, must often be spoken into view, preferably in collaboration with an other, someone with an ear for this very specific kindness of listening. Together, we will seek illumination; and with illumination, hope.

    In therapy, two hearts and minds can meet. The client is encouraged to unfold his or her life story; the therapist’s tenderness and maturity help allow the client to express himself or herself anew. Healing and transformation can then begin, and the client can start to appreciate himself or herself as unique. Therapy moves clients towards both accepting what is broken in them and finding hope for healing.

Working with a therapist you trust, who empathizes with what change is like for you, can support your strengths as you realize new possibilities.

    Therapy is an opportunity to determine what you want – what is most meaningful to you – then shift into living from that new understanding. An intentional, therapeutic dialogue attends to layers of mental and emotional discomfort, their origins, and their outdated purpose. Therapy is a means to unstick the stuck places; it is an instrument of profound change.

    Many clients entering therapy wonder, “How can only talking help me?” The increased sense of well-being we gain in therapy is more than just a worded experience. Current research in neurobiology validates the effectiveness of talk therapy, in which the therapeutic conversation creates “limbic resonance.” When you sit with a calm, knowledgeable, experienced psychotherapist you are neurologically regulating mind and mood.

    There seems to be an expectation when asked “How are you doing?” that only a positive response is invited. If we’re all “good”, why are many of us actually feeling bad? Psychotherapy provides a space where what you are truly feeling will be heard. Together, we will reflect and attend with care to whatever you are feeling.
