“And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom” (Anais Nin)
For many of us there comes a time when our old, familiar ways of doing things are no longer working; we find ourselves lost, stuck, or facing seemingly impossible roadblocks to the relationship, career or life we most deeply desire. I provide a compassionate, non-judgmental space in which to uncover how you can get out of your own way and show up fully and powerfully for yourself, others, and the opportunities of life.
As a former producer on some of the biggest primetime shows at NBC and Fox I feel uniquely well placed to support professionals in the film, television, and creative industries. I have an intimate knowledge of the specific challenges and issues that arise when working in these most demanding, high-pressure environments.
While I work relationally and in the here-and-now, I’m also trained in the somatically-oriented Trauma Resiliency Model http://traumaresourceinstitute.com/trauma-resiliency-model-trm/ and Attachment-Focused EMDR http://parnellemdr.com/emdr-and-af-emdr/ These modalities can be extremely effective in resolving the old traumas and deep-seated attachment issues that underlie many of our present day problems.
With experience as a school-based counselor, I enjoy supporting teens and young people in navigating through this most challenging phase of life and in building the self-esteem, resiliency, and sense of purpose required to truly flourish as a human being.
Having completed an externship with the founder of EFT http://www.iceeft.com/index.php/about-us/what-is-eft Sue Johnson, I bring this powerful, attachment-focused, empirically-validated methodology to my work with couples. In this approach we align together to shift anxious or avoidant attachment patterns into more secure ways of relating, allowing you to enjoy safety, companionship, and intimacy once more in your relationship.
