I take an integrative and person-centered approach to therapy, drawing heavily from the humanistic belief that people are good, and use a variety of therapeutic techniques toward the goal of growth and development. I address each client according to the systems, both internal and external, that comprise the organizing principles of their lives. Core tenets of my approach to psychotherapy include: Self-actualization, creativity, resilience, individuality, identifying and embracing core values, becoming, and meaning.
In the course of counselling, I will support you by helping you learn how to gain a greater awareness of your emotions, as well as the impact of emotions on our thoughts and behavior. We will explore limiting beliefs and how you may be holding yourself back from positive change and personal fulfillment. I will help you identify how shame, vulnerability, courage, and creativity impact our ability to grow and reach our full potential, and we will we will work to enhance awareness, emotional agility, and healthy self-direction.
The Daring Way™
The Daring Way™ is a highly experiential methodology based on the research of Dr. Brené Brown. The method was designed for work with individuals, couples, families, work teams, and organizational leaders. It can be facilitated in clinical, educational, and professional settings. As a certified facilitator of this curriculum, we work to explore topics such as vulnerability, courage, shame, and worthiness. We examine the thoughts, emotions, and behaviors that are holding us back and we identify the new choices and practices that will move us toward more authentic and wholehearted living. The primary focus is on developing shame resilience skills and developing daily practices that transform the way we live, love, parent, and lead.
