In my work, I listen to what the client speaks verbally and through his or her body. I pay special attention to client's unspoken words. Through empathic attunement with the client, I become aware of what he or she is experiencing in the therapeutic process, as well as in his or her past. I am also impacted by client's painful experiences and resonate with his or her feeling states. Through becoming a witness to client's painful past, the client can become free of his or her earlier experiences and can feel joy and pleasure of living, being alive, loving, and being loved.
I am a Certified Bioenergetic Therapist (CBT) with over 12 years of experience and am intimately familiar with, and have had training in many modalities within the field of Somatic Psychotherapy. In my work, I also employ interventions based on psychodynamic, existential, humanistic theories and therapies.
My work is deep and relational. Our psychological wounds generally occurred in our early relationships, and healing occurs in a relationship in which we are seen, heard, and felt unconditionally and non-judgmentally with respect, empathy, and love for who we truly are. The results are spontaneity, motility, benevolence, freedom, and love.
