I use a holistic approach to psychotherapy. Having been in the health care field for twenty years, I understand how certain thought patterns can lead to physical illness and how emotions and trauma are held in the body. I understand that we are a part of our environments, and that one way to heal is to heal our relationship with our environment. I am also aware that we are spiritual beings, and that healing the psyche includes healing our relationship with spirit. Through mindfulness, a body centered focus, Hypnotherapy, authentic presence, connecting with nature, EMDR, Gestalt techniques, and being with what arises, my clients are able to deeply connect with their inner nature and see through the barriers that limit them from their full potential.
On a personal note: I am happily married to a very wonderful man and have a beautiful daughter. I enjoy spending as much time as possible outdoors: backpacking, hiking, and leading others in the wilderness. I spend as much time as I can meditating and on meditation retreats. I love to be creative and this passion is fulfilled by designing jewelry and painting. I find the most meaningful part of my life is living genuinely and deeply connecting with others.
