Strengthening Support Systems
Are you in transition around your job or relationship? Although often difficult, periods of change can offer opportunities to bring your life in alignment with what is truly authentic and fulfilling for you. I can work with you to build supportive structures for your life that are more expressive of who you are. Sometimes this means taking a serious look at what is not serving you anymore and making some conscious choices and creative decisions to put your life back on track.
Nurturing Body Awareness
From a background of teaching yoga and studying somatic (mind-body based) psychology, one of the ways I can assist you to make the changes you want is to nurture body awareness. The process of tuning into the wealth of information your body is constantly relaying to you creates an inner dialogue that can inform your outer reality. This process is about working with mindfulness and does not involve touch.
For example, I might ask you to bring the feelings you are talking about more into the room by simply noticing where and how you are feeling them in your body. So, instead of talking about your feelings which keeps you one step removed from them, you are bringing your emotions into the immediate present where you can directly address them. This method moves your process from the abstract to the concrete where real lasting change can happen.
Traditional Alternative and Queer Couples
I work with couples to develop better communications skills so they can talk about “the difficult stuff” and overcome blocks to sex, intimacy, trust.
It is so easy to stop really seeing or hearing each other and develop an attitude of “already knowing.” I assist couples to address the road blocks and give them tools to practice at home so that they can get their relationship back on track.
Food and Body Image Struggles – Support Groups for Women
Support groups for women to develop a diet free lifestyle and reconnect to their appetite for life. These groups offer a diet free approach to untangle the physical, emotional and spiritual components of your struggle with food + weight. Your body does not have to be a battleground anymore. Healing an eating disorder can be a potential doorway to self-empowerment and a more fulfilling life.
