I offer individual, couples and small group counseling based on psychospiritual principles. We are spiritual beings whose life experiences and relationships are for the purpose of our psychological and spiritual development toward greater levels of maturity and consciousness. My focus is on healing our core issues and not merely the symptoms they create. I am a guide and facilitator of each person's healing journey and have been committed to this work for over 30 years.
I base much of my approach on the teachings of The Pathwork, a body of work that was introduced to the world by Eva Pierrokos from the late 1950s until the late 1970s. It outlines a path of how to shed our masks or false selves, dismantle our defenses, work through our ego issues and addictions and ultimately connect with and live from our true Spirits. I integrate modern psychotherapeutic techniques with a psychodynamic and transpersonal orientation. I believe that most of our symptoms are manifestations of unhealed
trauma and abuse/neglect and use regression therapy to identify and
clear the underlying experiences and the thoughts, feelings and
behaviors resulting from them.I use cutting edge techniques such as EMDR (eye movement desensitization and reprocessing) and transformational hypnotherapy. These techniques greatly enhance and accelerate the healing process.
I also help individuals come to terms with addictive use of substances and behaviors and especially benzodiazepine dependence and withdrawal. I recognize that benzo withdrawal is unlike withdrawal from any other drug and must be gradual. I work in conjunction with a psychiatrist who follows the Ashton Method of a slow taper using valium. I provide knowledge, insights, and individual support. I use hypnosis and EMDR to help with the withdrawal process as well as Cognitive Behavioral techniques.
Most recently I have begun offering small groups of 5-8 individuals who come together to study and discuss the Pathwork teachings and to process through their own personal issues in a safe, intimate setting. This helps to overcome shame, develop trust and confidence and build healthy, meaningful relationships and a sense of community of like-minded individuals.
