About My Approach

And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.

I’ve always loved this quote of Anaïs Nin’s. And although I still love it, as many do, something about it has always bothered me. What? Answer – It’s too limited. It simply doesn’t apply to enough people. Some of you are as emotionally tight as a bud, yet others are as emotionally loose as water. Therefore, the individual challenges for a person presenting to me as tight as a bud will be quite different from those presenting as loose as water.

So, if you are tight as a bud and don’t want to be, or you’re loose as water and don’t want to be, we will find your particular path to freedom from your personal restrictions.

My approach to helping you find your path is integrative. I use a variety of techniques depending on you. For example, whether our work together becomes primarily CBT (cognitive-behavioral), insight-oriented, or Jungian-focused, it is based upon your needs of the moment. My success is when your symptoms remit…for a moment, a day, and, ultimately, for a lifetime.

Types of Services Offered

First, we chat to see if we are meant to work together. We both must agree—we’ll know. There is no charge for the chat which will be anywhere from 15 minutes to ½ hr. via phone or Zoom.

It’s you I treat. Your cloak of symptoms directs our attention to where your energy is stuck. That blocked energy is what I help you to TRANSFORM; its release is a piece of your new freedom.

I tailor the specific approach to each person. I am flexible about switching approaches should it be dictated by your needs of a moment.

There is so much potential in all of us, so much untapped energy yearning to be free. What I do is help you free that energy. Whether you’re suffering from anxiety, depression, obsessions, guilt, anger issues, relationship problems, or parenting issues, the goal is the same – where are you stuck? Why isn’t your energy moving? What’s holding you back from being the you you know you can be? I help you break old unproductive attitudes and behaviors and help you build new ways of being.
