A unique relationship begins when we enter into therapy and to a great extent, it is this relationship itself that over time brings healing and relief.
In our work together, my patients encounter openness, curiosity and welcome to whatever may come up in a given session. In this atmosphere, it becomes possible to put more and more of their feelings into words, including the ones that have felt unsafe to say, or even to acknowledge fully to themselves before now.
As we come to terms with ourselves, it is tremendously helpful to be able to use the therapeutic relationship itself to explore who we are, what is important to us, and the feelings that come up for us in our relationships with others.
I’m constantly fascinated by the intricate workings of the human psyche and nervous system, and by our profound connection to each other, the natural world, and the spiritual aspect of our experience. I count myself lucky to spend my life immersed in this rich field, and to accompany my patients on their courageous journey of self-discovery and healing— just as I have been accompanied on my own path toward awakening, integration and wholeness.
