Services

 

Dream Interpretation:

Dreams are like getting instructions from a wise person within us. Our work together will delve into the meaning of the images and emotions of the dream and then how to apply this to our daily living. These messages from our dreams, suggest the changes we need to make in order to have a fuller and more balanced life.

 

Trauma And Dissociation:

We all have experiences of being overwhelmed where we feel powerless and helpless. Our therapeutic work will focus on gaining our personal power, our truth and our voice. This comes about by facing and becoming conscious of those events that we have strongly avoided and denied. This is called ‘conscious suffering’ and it can bring about healing done in small doses that we can metabolize.

 

Spirituality:

Am I in a relationship with the Other that directs me toward meaning and purpose?

This is not primarily about beliefs but about experiencing that which grounds and orientates my life. Our work will focus on those times in our lives when we experienced Mystery and how those times can anchor us.

 

Relationship Problems:

Basically opposites attract and then begin to bug and drive the other crazy! This attraction is usually that the other has developed qualities that I deeply need developed for my own healing but have not consciously developed. The soul’s purpose for a significant relationship is to bring forth what is most wounded within me—so that healing and redemption can happen. Our work will be about connecting to those issues and patterns within myself and the other that hinder and prevent meaningful and satisfying relationships.

 

Addictions:

The core of any addiction—is what is the pain/issue that I am avoiding and running away from? Our work will be to uncover the pain/issue and to face it within a safe, secure and caring environment.

 

Depression:

We all experience loss, grief and despair and those times when the desire to live grows weak. Our work will be through the creative arts and the images and symbols of dreams to turn despair into a fountain of creative energy.

 

Anxiety And Panic:

We often have those moments where we have panic, shortness of breath, dread of the future, sweaty body responses, and terror in the night when we are stressed and anxious. Our work will focus on the causes and how to regulate our emotions, soothe and care for our terrified selves.

 

Mid-life Challenges:

That still small voice within us that asks: “Is this all there is to my life?” This is our crisis to move from a one-sided life of misery to a life of meaning. Our work will focus on our patterns that limit and sabotage us and keep us from moving into our true authentic selves.

 

Anger Management:

The illusion is that we manage our anger! If we don’t face the pain and hurt underneath our anger—then our anger manages us! Our work will be to discover, face and deal with the pain and hurt so we can regulate our anger in a healing manner.

 

Heart Attack Issues:

When our hearts ‘speak’ via the ‘heart attack’ we need to listen carefully. It is a matter of life and death! Our work will focus on how is our life force blocked and what needs to be opened so that we can fully live.
