Counseling ~ Family Therapy ~ Holistic Psychotherapy
Welcometo my counseling and psychotherapy practice, where I assist individuals, families, and couples in transforming their problematic issues and achieving a greater sense of well-being and balance in their lives. The situations, losses, and difficulties that we experience provide us with the impetus we need to grow into a fuller more joyful life. No matter how out of balance a person feels, I believe that he or she has an inner capacity to move towards a better life. A person ability to create success and fulfillment is directly proportional to their ability to identify what doesn't work and then, to develop the ability to choose something else. Therapy is a supportive process of discovering what self-concepts, beliefs, or behaviors are self-limiting and learning how to successfully transform them. My role as a counselor is that of a co-creative partner, helping my clients to develop self-awareness and inner strength, while building the inner resources that can result in lasting changes in themselves, their relationships, and their lives. Through developing insight and skills, clarifying vision and values, and learning to carry out their intentions, my clients give themselves new experiences and possibilities in life. They learn how to create the lives they want. My background in holistic health and family therapy allow me to understand the interconnectedness of all parts of a person's life and the importance of addressing the body, mind, emotions, and spirit as one. Often, a split or disease in one area can affect the others and create imbalance and pain. Likewise a healing focus in one area will contribute to the total health and well-being of the individual, couple, or family. As clients develop self-awarenesses and self-acceptance on all levels, they begin to build an integrated and strong sense of self - an authentic self. This enables them to create a life that is more rewarding and less conflictual. Therapy is a courageous path of learning, unfolding, solidfying and expanding . It is an opportunity to transform and grow. I welcome your call and questions.
