I provide a safe space to meet painful issues and gently dismantle their power over your life. If you want to restructure and redefine relationships that are no longer working for you, I can help. If you think self-defeating thought patterns and underlying belief systems might be opening the door to unwanted situations in your life, I can help you rewrite that story. I would be honored to walk through this journey with you.
In addition to talk therapy, I can lead you on a series of gentle guided meditations through your own heart and mind, to transform issues that may be too painful for words. I use a combination of art, journaling, and symbolic imagery to access those deep places that need healing.
I take a holistic approach to healing, recognizing that each part of our lives is connected to all the others. I consider past and present relationships, physical health, spirituality, and community connections when collaborating with you to bring balance to your inner life experience.
The Bible is full of imagery and metaphors for good reason. God has created in us an imagination as a basis for believing, planning, and creating outcomes. We first conceive an idea in our imaginations. The longer we dwell on an idea, the more likely it is that we will bring it to pass. James 1:15 outlines how this works when we focus on something negative, but the same principles work just as powerfully (if not more so) when we use them to bring about positive changes! I can help you bring your faith to life, make it more relevant, and more instrumental in getting the results you need.
