As we meet together, I welcome exploring with you possible unworkable strategies such as freezing, fighting and fleeing. I encourage a gentle melting of what no longer serves you in these and more ways:
I aspire to meet you with the invited style that works best for you, be it receptive, dynamic, following or guiding, to help you turn insight into the ability to find real directions in life and accept and listen with your inner guidance.
I encourage both psychological spaciousness and connection and support your penetrating seeing into the pattern integrity of a fixed position, situation and life choice.
I face risks and dark places with you and provide safe ground. I look for receptive moments to suggest, to comment, to engage your course of action in tune with your readiness, as well as to inquire in a focused yet respectful and caring way when things are unclear.
I acknowledge the ebb and flow in the therapeutic process where there are peaks, valleys and plateaus as a natural rhythm of our psyche’s mutual learning.
I stand by you in supporting you in voicing your wisdom and knowledge.
I stand with you in celebrating your breakthroughs and spontaneous liberation from people, places and things that are not serving your highest aspirations and deepest needs.
I encourage periods of solitude in nature, meaningful retreats, stillness, self-reflection, meditation as a way of listening to your inner knowing.
I embody abiding trust in the overall unfolding processes of living and dying.
I follow the guidelines of the State of Colorado as a Registered Psychotherapist and have been in practice for 40 years as a Transpersonal psychotherapist, Chaplain and Mentor, an Ecotherapist for 35 years, in the death and dying community for 20 years, and an Internationally Certified Thanatologist (dying, death and bereavement) practicing as a Death Awareness Educator for the past 4 years.
I see clients and mentees in person in Boulder, Co. , via Skype or phone in Colorado, and mentor widely out of state through Skype and phone. I offer a sliding scale.
Please be in touch with questions, for a free consultation and to make an appointment.
