My approach to psychotherapy is a holistic and somatically oriented approach which  incorporates a person's mind, body, spirit, and body into the process of healing. Patterns of perception, thoughts, beliefs, attitudes, and behaviors can affect a person's physical functioning, just as a person's diet, posture, and level of physical activity can affect a person's mental and emotional state. When we become aware of how disowned and unresolved aspects of the self contribute to  habitual patterns of functioning in the world, we can improve our flexibility, reduce unconscious defense mechanisms,  heal relational wounds, and build a more integrated sense of self.
