Unique Therapy Sessions
If you had a lot of traumatic things happen in the past, you might need to begin with therapy. Unresolved trauma is like a wound that won't heal. You can put a bandaid on it, but if it's infected, it will just get worse.
My therapy sessions are a lot different than what you might expect. My main goal is to find your strengths and build on those. You've probably had a lifetime of focusing on your weaknesses, so we don't need to spend more time there!
We'll start by helping you identify the old stories that are holding you back—those thoughts that you have when you tell yourself, "I can't do_____" or "I shouldn't want______ or feel ______. " You'll learn how to stop letting those old stories dominate your life and drive your behavior.
I'll give you some skills you can use so that you CAN stand to experience the tough emotions like anger, loneliness, and anxiety. You'll learn some of the newer therapy techniques like Positive Psychology and how to use energy practices including:
Exercises to Raise Vibration
Techniques for Protecting Emotional/Physical/Spiritual Boundaries
You'll get to take part in Experiential Therapy Techniques including:
Parts Work (Internal Family Systems)
Creative Writing/Visual Journaling
You'll pay out of pocket for your sessions, giving you with more privacy related to your insurance. Typically, we create a simple treatment plan involving 6-8 sessions, and then take stock from there.
My clients are busy, high functioning people who want alternatives to traditional mental health care. Their spiritual life is a priority, and they see their life challenges as opportunities for evolving spiritually.
I use experiential therapy with clients who experience:
Payment options include Pay Pal and Square.
Stressful Life Transitions
I work with motivated people like you who are committed to personal and spiritual growth, yet feel bogged down by pain, grief, anxiety, or confusion. I see you as a whole, resourceful person who is capable of achieving your goals. Together, we co-create a course of therapy where you will clearly identify what you want, create concrete action steps, and hold yourself accountable for implementing in your life what you learn in your sessions.
