How I Work

How I Work

In the therapy room, I work collaboratively with you. The most valuable skill that I bring to any issue is my ability to listen openly, attentively and compassionately.  As a therapist, I see my role as that of a guide, supporting you to trust and empower yourself so that your own inner knowing shows us both where it is most valuable to put our combined energies.  The environment of my office is one of peace and relaxation, further promoting a safe haven for issues to easily surface.

Once we have determined what the focus is for the session, there are many tools and skills in what I like to call my “therapist’s tool box.” Over the course of our time together, I might work with you using any and sometimes all of the following:

  • EFT/Emotional Freedom Technique or what is now known as Meridian Tapping
  • EMDR/Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing –
  • Creative Visualization
  • Deep Relaxation and Breathing
  • Gestalt
  • Creative Expression ie. Vision Boarding and working with Ideal Life Scenes
  • Hypnotherapy
  • Psychoeducation
  • Bibliotherapy
  • Spiritual Psychology

These are just an example of some of the tools in my Tool Box.  The Hypnotherapy technique I work with is a collaboration of a variety of different types of hypnotherapy, including Ericksonian, which deepen the therapy process to promote healing on the unconscious level.  This is a particularly valuable way of creating relaxation and a sense of peace when issues stem from stress or, in some cases traumatic situations in both the present and the past.

I may also work with you in freeing your creative expression, to envision a more fulfilling and energizing life.  There are many different opportunities to use your creativity, even when you don’t feel in touch with it all the time.  Opening up this channel can often bring forward more joy and a greater sense of personal freedom.

These are just a couple of examples of how these “tools” can be used in supporting you to discover your unique gifts, talents and opportunities.

They will enable you to truly express yourself authentically so that you may become a more confident, and enthusiastic YOU in your life and your relationships!

If this appeals to you, I encourage you to call me.  I truly want to help so call me on (949) 922-8548 or fill out my Contact page so that we can connect.
