Is addiction damaging your life and keeping you stuck? I work with you holistically to achieve a sustainable recovery. Building motivation, preparation and planning, specific coping strategies, and connecting the dots to root causes are the foundation. Whether you are looking to take small steps or make bigger changes, we start where you are.
“Where you look affects how you feel.” Discovered by Dr David Grand, Brainspotting (BSP) provides a neurobiological tool that can locate, process and release experiences and symptoms out of reach of the conscious mind. BSP is particularly effective in helping to identify and heal underlying trauma that contributes to anxiety, depression and other behavioural conditions. It is also used with performance and creativity enhancement.
“Relationships are the biggest determinant of our happiness, yet we’re never taught how to do them.” Based on the work of Dr Alexandra Solomon, RSA promotes a curious and compassionate relationship with your Self that is the foundation for intimacy. It helps clients bring awareness to their internal landscapes, their influencers and patterns, and reimagine what’s possible in their intimate relationships.
Developed from transpersonal and archetypal psychologies, this approach is about coming “home” = rediscovering the truth of who you are. In striving to meet expectations of others or in achieving outward success, we often lose connection with who we are on the inside. This loss can create depression, anxiety, and a sense of disconnection from ourselves. Spiritual Psychotherapy invites you to explore and realign with the essence of who you are. It is about self-empowerment.
“That’s a way to see it and there is also another way to see it.” (Insoo Kim Berg)
This approach empowers individuals to focus on goals and solutions to their problems, rather than focusing their efforts on the problem itself.
It helps clients discover capabilities they may have overlooked, while identifying past successes and ways to repeat them. It is positive, collaborative and hopeful.
Begins with the awareness of the prevalence of trauma. It recognizes the signs of traumatic impact and takes steps to avoid re-traumatizing people while supporting their healing from the past. Whether from adverse childhood experiences or circumstances in adult years, this is a compassionate approach that helps clients with emotional regulation, grounding and coping tools, and the deep healing provided by Brainspotting.
“Far too often, we don’t start because we can’t get our minds around the entire thing. We don’t take the first step because we can’t figure out the seventeenth step. But you don’t have to know the seventeenth step. You only have to know the first step. Because the first number is always 1.
Start with 1.”
