"Your vision will become clear only when you can look into your own heart.
Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes."
The above quote does a good job of summing up my approach to psychotherapy and spiritual transformation. I believe all of the answers to our truly deep questions come from spending time looking within. Our work involves removing any obstacles to that inner vision and allowing the awakening process to transform our lives.
My therapeutic focus is Psychodynamic and Transpersonal in nature, meaning I am interested in the integration of psychological healing and spiritual attunement. My approach is holistic, taking into account body, mind, and spirit. I value the wisdom of yoga, meditation, and other spiritual practices in the healing process.
The underlying principles that guide my work are:
- All the wisdom needed for healing resides in the client
- There is a natural process of healing that exists in the body and the psyche of everyone
- Healing can happen when a safe space is created for the Self to facilitate healing
- Our pains and struggles are not pathologies but opportunities for our growth and transformation
