Attachments & aversions are a great source of suffering. Counseling can help you with this human struggle; habitual reactions to stress. Notice how you contract into entrenched patterns of critical, negative self-talk, or attempt to avoid and suppress uncomfortable feelings. With 25 years counseling experience, I offer compassion and empathy, and therapeutic interventions that promote personal exploration and evolution. To be less reactive, and more reflective is a key advantage to increased resilience and success. You can be authentic, alive and present. The finest reward is more self-awareness & self-compassion. Recognize your true value, and accept yourself unconditionally.
I support people to re-process and desensitize symptoms of post traumatic stress. Unresolved trauma can create an over-alert nervous system. Intrusive symptoms subside with procedures to help tolerate uncomfortable feelings,increase resilience & reset the nervous system. Less past residue allows more ease to react, respond, and live NOW!
Counselling can reveal and heal obstacles that stop you from living in harmony with your true nature.
I can provide a free and protected place for you to attend to grief, the effects of trauma, and other adverse life experiences. Counselling can release you from the grip of fear, guilt, and resentment. I believe in the healing power of creating a therapeutic relationship where you can feel safe and accepted. I provide unconditional positive regard, so you can connect deeply with your feelings, and all your attributes. This connection supports a gathering of energy for transformation. The outcome can be to change old patterns: to be more reflective and resilient. You can begin to make inspired, exceptional adjustments to life’s challenges and changes.
Therapy is a key foundation to support unfolding into your full potential and realizing your true self. I enjoy this process of personal evolution, and I like to deepen my personal development with exploring the wisdom in teachings and practices like philosophy, spirituality, meditation, yoga, ayurveda, kung fu, and chi kung.
