Mindfulness and Somatic-Based Counseling
(Accepting New Clients Via Phone or Telehealth)
Welcome and thanks for checking out my website. I hope you will get a sense of who I am and how I can support you to enliven your life and embrace these challenging times.
Our bodies carry our entire life experience. Generally, I practice a mindfulness and somatic approach that follows Hakomi Principle and Practices and weaves Existential, Cognitive, Gestalt and Expressive Arts theories together as we find meaning in how we perceive ourselves in the present moment. This process offers practical tools for discovering, understanding, and integrating as positive resources the themes, patterns, and stories that shape and are shaped by our life experience.
This strength-based somatic approach to therapy is grounded in the idea that we grow up experiencing life, where we organize our thinking, feeling and behavior around what we learned about ourselves growing up.
The processes that I use are appropriate for individuals and groups—from men and women struggling with personal issues seeking to deepen their aliveness.
Certainly we deal with what’s happening currently, but we recognize the implicit forces that guide our lives, discover our strengths and embody them in an attempt to shift and redirect them.
