Together we don't need to be afraid of the shadows...

We can move freely through the dark, or turn on the light switch.  Or we can wait until sunrise. What now may seem like shame, anxiety, aloneness, or fear can be held  up to the light of our care.

Psychotherapy of Body-Mind & Trust offers a return from 'stuckness'. Inner-trust, and trust-in-relationship will begin again after attachment breaches, either early in your life --or after a more recent loss or break-up. You'll remember what is special about you when your heavy heart and yearnings are greeted and valued as our road-map.

We do this through talking, laughing, and sometimes: Your tears share your powerful story, the anger in your arms or upper back comes to life, and you start to feel safe (again) to reveal your dreams, loves, hopes. I also offer to teach you healing body-movements linked with your emotions.

All of my genuine self is brought to our connection, without pretense of neutrality or distance for which therapists are typically trained. Through vibrant conversation and contemplative sharing, glimmers of epiphany and possibility may be found among the empty feeling in your chest, the butterflies in your belly, or the painful tightness in your throat. You will no longer feel so alone with emotions, even when you leave our session to resume your daily life.

 There's a tiny flame inside--the one that never goes out, and is always available to light the path behind you and the path in front of you, safely, with step-by-step guidance from a relaxed, very experienced psychotherapist.
