“Since the earliest period of our life was preverbal, everything depended on emotional interaction. Without someone to reflect our emotions, we had no way of knowing who we were.” ― John Bradshaw, Healing the Shame that Binds You
As a marriage family therapist and art therapist, the methods I use include dialogue, expressive arts therapy, dreams, metaphor, nature healing, archetypes guided imagery, journaling, story-telling, and hypnosis. [for more information see Approach]
These methods empower you with a deeper awareness of yourself, provide new tools for coping, and result in long-term change. This allows an integration of both the right (imagination) and left (logical, concrete) hemispheres of your brain.
This holistic approach views the individual as multi-dimensional; acknowledging the physical, emotional, spiritual, and intellectual parts of you.
