*COVID-19 safety measures: Please note that due to the pandemic, I will be providing virtual sessions via the phone, Zoom, or Skype until there’s adequate safety for face-to-face sessions.
“In the midst of winter, I found there was, within me, an invincible summer. And that makes me happy. For it says that no matter how hard the world pushes against me, within me, there’s something stronger – something better, pushing right back.”
~ Albert Camus
Through individual sessions, I offer Jungian analysis and body-oriented psychotherapy for individual adults.
Grounded in Jungian, Somatic, Object Relations, and Creative Arts Therapy approaches, my work investigates the relationship between emotion, imagination, body, psyche, soul, and community.
Areas of Specialization:
Issues related to identity, anxiety, depression, emotional regulation, self-esteem, trauma, intimacy & attachment patterns, relationships, healthy lifestyle balance, career path, life transitions, grief & loss, psychosomatic symptoms, dreams, creativity, authenticity, questions of the spirit, finding joy and meaning, and cross-cultural elements in healing.
My approach to body-oriented psychotherapy:
Movement-based explorations and somatic interventions (such as attending to natural movement, breath, grounding, body metaphors, dreams in the body, and other conscious and unconscious messages from our body) facilitate the development of embodied consciousness, empathy, agency, and presence.
My approach is process-oriented – responding to the unique situation, background and needs of the individual. I integrate verbal psychotherapy with Jungian dreamwork, Authentic Movement, Marion Woodman’s BodySoul Rhythms® approach, Dance/Movement Therapy, insights from neuroscience, writing, art, and voice.
