Personal View:

It brings me great joy to assist people in becoming and expressing themselves. Who are you? What do you really feel, think and care about? 

I am interested in helping you find out and will encourage you to risk saying YES to yourself wholeheartedly.

Our work will be around your specific needs to make changes in the areas you are seeking help with. In working together, I will explain clearly what I observe and understand about your process and help you access and express all parts of yourself by guiding you to share honestly, listen deeply, reflect soulfully, tend patiently and respond creatively to whatever part is revealing itself at any particular moment. Honest sharing is not so easy when one is used to unkind eyes that judge and criticize. This is why I am committed to nurture a non-threatening environment in which you are encouraged to express all the repressed, wounded, disowned, guilt-ridden and defamed parts you have learned to reject and withdraw from. I believe that in a soulful atmosphere all parts in time reveal themselves and can be seen, cared for and integrated. I also believe that it will be your own Psyche’s creativity and healing qualities that will move you in unimaginable ways and restore your sense of presence and wholeness.
