Are you ready to take responsibility for your personal journey? Are you prepared to form an alliance that has one goal and one goal alone – the betterment of your life?
When you and I sit down together, we will create a space dedicated to your growth and healing. I will inspire and support you to make the changes your current difficulties demand. Together we will work out a plan for you to transcend the painful parts of your history. I bring to the work my capacity to listen, to be present with compassion. Self judgment will be set aside in favour of self-respect.
I will make sure neither of us gets totally distracted by your problems. Instead, we will take an inventory of your strengths and strategize around how to press them into your service. In fact, I will challenge you to own your aspirations, your competencies, your brilliance. And I will look at the whole you. I will remind you about the essence of who you really are.
On the physical side of our self development, over the more than 25 years of practice, I have observed that the more conscientiously my clients attend to their self-care, the faster they feel better. Of course, this is not the whole picture but it can be the easiest first steps. For instance, I will take an interest in what you eat, how you soothe yourself, your level of physical activity and how you can nurture your connection with the natural world.
Over time we come to learn that pain is not our enemy but an expression of our inner wisdom and intelligence. Sometimes it is the only vehicle we have to get us from where we are now to where we would like to be.
We will also explore the beliefs that hold you together in your darkest hours. Our suffering actually becomes more bearable when we can make meaning out of it , when we can place it within the greater context of our life's purpose.
It is within this environment that you will find answers to your toughest questions and arrive at an easier, more enlightened relationship with the human experience .
