The first part of emotional healing is being known. In the relationship that develops between us, I attune to you, giving you my full attention. Making use of my training, my intuition and feedback from your words and body language, I begin to know and understand how you sense and perceive the world.
Self-awareness is a critical step in the process leading
to change. In our sessions I support you
to slow down and attend to your sensations, impulses, emotions, thoughts and
memories. Each offers a path toward understanding.
Our hurt and injured selves may need to be defended
before they can trust again. I speak up
on behalf of your hurt self and fight for his/her rights. I offer the essential
‘missing experience’ and help you to receive it. You learn to
distinguish what is and is not nourishing, and to trust your instinct.
Understanding is not enough. Change has to be incorporated
into the body. What was once learned experientially
gets revised experientially. We work together to practice new behavior in
a supportive environment. This is a key step in maintaining lasting change.

world flows around and through us. However, living indoors, sequestered, plugged
into technology, we seldom seek, enjoy, appreciate, or trust nature, nor our
Yet we are part of more than we can see. We walk to
rhythms longer than the conscious mind can know. Just as human relatedness
has the power to recalibrate us, immersion in nature reconnects our brain
nonverbally to the natural, non-languaged, unedited, unmediated feeling, often
called our inner nature.
Within a field of caring, focused human attention, imbedded in the interconnected intelligence of the earth, we can again regain our integral nature as we are nourished, supported, guided and invited to return home…to our deep, wild, rooted place in the natural world.
