Learn the alchemy
True Human Beings know:
The moment you accept
what trouble you’ve been given,
the door opens.
Do you want to learn how to communicate with your partner without going into reactivity?Do you want to learn how to be friends and lovers on a path of transformation and not enemies and strangers stuck in the same house?
I am a certified couples counselor in Portland Oregon, specializing in couples dealing with breakdowns in communication, parenting, finances, sex and blended families. I teach you the skills necessary to create a healthy, intimate and deep relationship.
All Relationships require us to learn, heal and grow! There is not something wrong with you or your relationship if you are seeking a couples counselor, it is just a sign that you are ready to learn, heal and grow!
Don’t wait until it is too late. Couples who seek help earlier in their relationship have much higher success rates of having satisfying and committed relationships!
Are you interested in learning how to take the suffering in your life, disorders in your body or psyche or traumatic events you’ve experienced, or the reactivity and disconnection in your relationship and turn it into your greatest tool for transformation and learning?
I look at the physical or body related issues as part of the complex whole that is you. We look for and treat any chemical imbalances, dietary sensitivities, exercise, and supplementation. I often refer clients to ND, Psychiatrists, Acupuncturists or chiropractors for supplemental therapies.
I work with the soul, using biographic exploration in order to locate and heal developmental traumas. Since 95% of our mind is preprogrammed unconscious patterns, I use tools that allow us to access that which normally remains unconscious. The tools I use are Eye Movement Desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR), Neuro-Emotional Technique (NET), flower essence therapy, homeopathic remedies, and mindfulness meditation. All of these tools are powerful ways to access the sub and supra-conscious mind and break stuck or preprogrammed emotional-energetic patterns of stress and trauma.
I work with the spirit in counseling through meditation, prayer and dreamwork, modalities that tap into the spiritual or supra-conscious realms. In sessions, we are always seeking for what creates a meaningful and existentially rich life. Some areas that are most important in the spiritual work are around questions of letting go of control, trust, and surrender.
This threefold approach is both a top down and bottom up process and always through the middle.
I specialize in working with the following Anxiety, Insomnia, Depression, addiction and Relationship Issues.
