Welcome

I provide therapeutic counseling outside of the mainstream model, offering a range of healing modalities from conventional to less so.


The foundational belief that informs all of my work is that our society- what I call the 'narcissystem'- is hostile to our well-being and full expression of self.


The antidote is to return, wherever poss
ible, to the ancient principles of Nature.


How can we do this in our relentlessly tech-y times?


By recognizing the ways that we reflect Nature (eg: winter being a time when we need more sleep and are more likely to grapple with dense, heavy emotions) and finding ways to work with those biological impulses rather than against them (eg: keeping the same sleep schedule regardless of the season, pushing away unpleasant emotions until the backlog becomes unavoidable and perilously overwhelming). 



Another Nature-based principle is that there's no real division between mental, emotional, spiritual, and physical well-being. They're woven together and must be treated together.


This belief in the supremacy of Nature's wisdom is the tap root that nourishes my life, my practice, and the people I'm honored to work with.


 

I believe we’re at a transitional point in history where people

are recognizing that modern societies have abandoned many of the fundamental elements required for optimal human mental health.

Two Ways Forward


While the foundation of the work I do is relational, and depends on the connection built between myself and the client over time, there's also a lot of benefit to be had
from single sessions on an as-needed basis, especially in acute situations.

Here are some of the services I offer which ca
n stand alone or be
woven into an ongoing therapeutic relationship.



Parts work
Everything you do has a purpose and satisfies a need- even those behaviors that some call 'self-sabotage'. Parts work is a kind of guided meditation that helps you to hone in on why you do what you do and move toward healthier alternatives.

Guided meditations
For those who feel comfortable with this, a guided meditation tailored to your situation can be one of the most direct ways to get out of your head and into your body to find the clarity and/or emotional release that elude you.

Somatic work
A consistent practice of clearing emotional stagnation is basic nervous system hygiene, needed by everyone, especially in periods of intensity. However, if you suffer from ptsd, complex ptsd, adhd, or other conditions with a 'paralytic' feature it can give you your life back.

I help clients build a 'vocabulary' of somatic movements that fit their lifestyle and comfort level and can be woven into daily life. In situations that call for something stronger, I offer Somatic Guided Drawing, the ultimate outlet.


Inner child practices
Whether we remember them or not, our formative, childhood experiences are part of who we are and influence our daily lives. This work brings security and closure to your child self, allowing your adult self back into the driver's seat of your life. 

Womb work
(for females only, of course)
Modern medicine has never fully embraced the female body, least of all the womb. This not-fitting-in with our society's dominant paradigm creates a core of grief and shame that's often indistinguishable from the experience of modern womanhood.

Cultivating connection with the womb can feel weird, even wrong, to our programming- and that's exactly why it's so important. Making peace with your womb is often the key to making peace with your body, for all women (biologically speaking), but especially those in the phases of pregnancy, motherhood, and menopause.

Plant spirit medicine
Plants are the original living inhabitants of our world and being in relationship with these elders- especially the ones you encounter in your daily life- can provide a sense of wonder at life's profoundness that so many are lacking. 

Whether you want to correct an imbalance that's physical or mental in nature, or if your inclinations are more mystical, I can help you find your 'medicine' and incorporate it into your life.


 Counsel
Though talk therapy is only one of many offerings, it's true  that tremendous relief and clarity can come from sharing your story or practicing 'verbal ventilation' with someone skilled in empathy and non-judgment, and whose only motive is your growth and expansion. Additionally, the

There are some of us who can live without wild things, and some who cannot. For us of the minority, the opportunity to see geese or wild flowers is a right as inalienable as free speech.

What to Expect

Though it's not required, I strongly recommend beginning with at least 4 consecutive (weekly) sessions. This allows us to begin building the mutual understanding that will underly our work together. 

Before our first session, I'll collect some basic information from you about your life and goals. From this we'll create a general trajectory and a way of assessing your progress.

Unless you've chosen a specific therapy from th
e list above, our hour together will unfold similarly to a traditional therapy session, with you sharing about what you're facing- internally or externally- or me leading the session based on your previously stated intentions.

I like to assign homework to encourage you to inhabit your life differently between sessions. Because it's the ways you make this work your own that will really transform you!
