For Therapists

Thank you for taking the time to check in here.  My psychotherapy work has been informed and shaped primarily by Psychodynamic, Gestalt, Somatic and Transpersonal orientations as well as modalities including Hakomi and Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy (AEDP).   What this means for my clients is that the past is invited into the present in ways that feel safe, useful, mindful and transformational.  What this feels like during sessions is empathy, curiosity, deep listening, humor, presence and a trust in their inner wisdom.

I believe in the efficacy of providing clients with an opportunity for exploration instead of delivering an explanation.  That said, there are times when it feels appropriate for me to assist clients in making the unconscious conscious.  Additionally, my moment-to-moment tracking of the 80% of communication that is  non-verbal not only increases safety and trust, but also provides a wider and richer landscape to explore with the client.

Finally, I have completed various trainings in The Hakomi Method, AEDP, The Rosen Method, Collaborative Couples Therapy, Clinical Applications of the Enneagram, Skills for Change Bodywork, Restorative Practices, Positive Psychology and The Grief Recovery Method® and my work is influenced by many teachers including: Phillip Moffitt, John Welwood, A.H. Almaas, Fred Luskin, Diana Fosha, Rob Fisher, Angeles Arrien, Sandra Maitri, Adyashanti and Marion Rosen.
