Whether you choose to work with me for a few sessions or long-term depends entirely on your needs and situation. A few sessions at the right time in your life can have tremendous impact.
Therapy is a place to voice the very personal thoughts and feelings that you may not have shared with anyone.
I am always ready to hear aspects of my clients' lives that may not be the immediate reason they sought out counseling. Sometimes we're not aware of the many different issues that are bothering us underneath the surface. The Swiss psychologist Carl Jung stated,
"In many cases in therapy the patient who has come to us has a story that is not told, and which as a rule no one knows of. To my mind, therapy only really begins after the investigation of that wholly personal story."
To have a place to share those aspects of yourself is very healing. It releases energy and opens up new energies and potentials in you that bring fresh vision and vitality to your daily living.
My role is to help you listen to your life and your inner guidance more deeply.
What it's like to work with me
My approach centers on deep listening, taking the time to really understand who you are and what your life situation is. At the start of our work together, my aim is to help you with the immediate issues and feelings you're struggling with, so that you start feeling better and your nervous system relaxes.
You will usually feel better within one to two sessions, as you gain a sense of hope and support.
Then, as our work progresses, my aim is to facilitate deeper self-knowledge, integration and self-actualization. That means understanding yourself better, improving your relationships, exploring what is most meaningful to you, replacing negative habits with a positive lifestyle, and aligning more fully with your goals.
If you're ready to start transforming your life, I’m ready to hit the ground running with you. We will quickly get to the heart of the matter.
I am a strong ally for those who are in crisis, who need encouragement and who wish to find a deeper ground of strength and wisdom in their lives. My role is to help you explore what is most true, real and helpful for you.
Nothing pleases me more than seeing my clients' lives improve, and I will be honored to help you too. Just give me a call to discuss your situation.
