My work as a psychotherapist is grounded in the arts, in shamanic approaches to healing, and in the Narrative therapies. It is focused on story and spirit, and is Trauma Informed.
Central to my work is the belief that “the person is not the problem; the problem is the problem.” We will focus on the stories you hold dear, your preferred values and ways of living, and how these can become the locus of your life. The old stories that hold you hostage will be challenged, and space created for stories, and ways of living, that are more true to your unique vision. Always, you are the expert in your experience, while the healer or therapist is a consultant and companion on the journey.
We will work together to awaken The Healer Within You. We will draw on your life experience and wisdom, and if you wish, will seek support and guidance from those who care deeply for you.
Please Note: Many shamanic ideas and techniques can be useful in psychotherapy, and we can discuss including them in our work together.
