What my clients say about me
I believe that every person has the capacity for healing and the ability to live a rich, joyous, and purposeful life. I see healing as a holistic process that takes place on physical, emotional, intellectual, spiritual and relational levels. I have a profound respect for the seed of wisdom that resides in each of us and knows exactly how to manifest our unique potential.
In my work, I have witnessed how life’s challenges can create emotional scars that then consciously or unconsciously run our lives. These scars can manifest as anxiety, depression, addictions, relationship problems, low self-esteem and a variety of others issues.
My style of therapy focuses on first getting to know these places of hurt with compassion and respect. Numerous clients have reported profound changes in their lives by simply beginning to relate to themselves with more compassion and curiosity. Next, we work to gently and safely release these scars to bring greater vitality and peace to your entire internal system.
