Personal Statement

I work with my clients to learn about their presenting problems, helping us both to learn what their bodies are trying to tell them, to find out how they've been protecting themselves during their lives and to provide resources for them to use so that they feel empowered to go on with life more confidently. I use mindfulness if it feels appropriate and IFS (Internal Family Systems) when it feels right. I am open to journeying with my clients so that we work together to figure things out.
