Approach

My approach tends to be more direct, analytical and somatic combined, and rooted in an intuitive and empathic connection with you. I bring humor and inspiration to our sessions because the journey inward can also be creative and enjoyable.

What you need for healing is unique. My job is to attune specifically to what you need.

It is the therapeutic relationship that facilitates 90% of healing. Therefore, I don’t want to sell you on methods, although I do use a variety of potent methods to help illuminate and transform your inner world, building skills and awareness to help heal and bring out your true self.

I will help you find the root cause of issues, unearthing unconscious feelings and patterns of behavior to understand how the past is effecting your present sense of self. We will explore your internal experience, shadow, family of origin, and other aspects of self hidden from awareness.

Tarot cards are a tool we may use to unearth what is hidden. The cards can directly reveal what otherwise might take a lot of discussing to understand. The cards also open up an intuitive and somatic dialogue that helps bring clarity while releasing feelings held in the body.

We may use ritual and journeying to explore your inner world somatically.

I can also look into your Astrological natal chart, an archetypal map revealing character traits, obstacles, gifts, soul purpose and lessons.

I use the insight-based modalities of Jungian psychology, narrative therapy, attachment theory, and family systems to understand the psyche.

We will incorporate somatic and mindfulness practices to develop self worth, build communication skills, create new neural pathways.

If you are experiencing a spiritual awakening, I may help you to integrate other- worldly aspects of your soul. I can also guide you in past life journeying to help heal chronic fears and wounds.

I am comfortable and adept using only psychotherapeutic modalities if that feels right for you. It is not necessary to use Tarot, Astrology, or alternative healing tools. There are many ways to look within and understand the self.

Reach out and let’s talk. I offer a free consultation and I am happy to answer any questions.
