Counseling, Art Therapy & Yoga Therapy

 What It Might it be like to Work TOgether... 



Together we develop awareness, understanding and healing so that you may have more choices in the way your life unfolds. My approach to therapy gives the body and the somatic (body based) self a voice. Together, we ask questions like: How does your story "live" in your body? How do your issues live in your tissues?


Working with me is a blend of counseling, art therapy, yoga, mindfulness and meditation where we inquire into the limbic, implicit, sub-conscious, body-based world of the inner you. We are looking to discover what it is that you need to move forward, to heal what doesn't feel right, and to step into a more fulfilling quality of life.  


My approach is a holistic framework in which you have the opportunity to address your whole-system. We can navigate through the unique and complex matrix of your mind and body to create integration, smooth out the rough edges, look behind the closed doors, sweep out the cob webs and clean under the rug. Sometimes this is hard work and requires courage and vulnerability. Almost always there is light at the end of the tunnel and life becomes far more bright as a result. Always, the process and pace of this work is up to you, with me as your safety-guide.
