The word "therapy" means "to care for." Thus "psychotherapy" can be understood as conveying "the care of the psyche, or soul." By knowing our authentic self and our own true nature we bring to the forefront all aspects of ourselves as an empowered and Integrated Self engaging the world.
My psychotherapy work with you begins as a process of self-discovery, then naturally moves into learning how to consciously care for ourselves. It then transitions into the work of self-actualization and personal development. This process has the power to change every aspect of your life.
My methodology is oriented toward the comprehensive nature of relationships, which for most New York City residents includes the challenges of living in this exciting and oftentimes stressful city. We start with an eye toward our original relationship templates that often are no longer serving us well. We then move toward healing these inner wounds by cultivating deep self-awareness and compassion, furthered by activating our inner resilience to handle life's changes. This nurturing of our inner resources can be very empowering and leads to what I see as real change in real time, thus marking a felt shift in one's consciousness.
Working with me you can expect to achieve greater emotional connectedness with yourself and an awareness of the impact you have on others. You will learn the self care mechanisms necessary to manage upsetting emotions amid the uncertainty of our fast-paced lives. I will help you to integrate your disowned selves (the important aspects of yourself that have been sublimated) and learn to express with directness and personal power. You will learn to communicate more effectively by defining your own needs while honoring those of others. With heartfelt dedication and an engaging presence, I assist you in your own journey of self discovery, healing, and actualization.
