INDIVIDUAL ADULT COUNSELLING
My practice is open to adults 18 years of age and older. I typically work with mature individuals, once or twice a month, long-term.
My psychotherapy practices focuses on self awarness and transformation. Those interested in this kind of inner work are commonly intrigued by and appreciative of the potential that exists for human growth. They tend to care about the world and want to live a purposeful life.
Spiritual Direction is the traditional term used for inner work based on soulfulness or spirituality. Spiritual direction invokes the world of archetypes, and the language of the Divine, Buddhas, Presence, and so on. Spiritual Direction invites us to listen attentively to stirrings of the heart and to live a life congruent with our deepest values.
For some, spiritual direction is aligned with a religious or spiritual tradition, and for others it is an inquiry into what it means to be fully present to this one precious life.
Life comes with its share of pain and discouragement. Aging is marked by grief. If we are blessed with longevity we are sure to encounter the loss of family and friends, the diminishment of good health, the letting go of careers or activities that carried meaning and purpose, and the death of dreams that were never realized. We may also develop death anxiety and become more fearful in general.
On the other hand, growing old is wild with the possibility of becoming the person we’ve always longed to be. While sometimes painful, the barriers and losses we encounter are also opportunities for growth and healing. Moving into the winter of our lives, it is possible to encounter a freedom that our younger self did not allow.
Aging invites us on a path of creativity, deep meaning, and true joy.
MENTORSHIP and SUPERVISION
I supervise and mentor psychotherapists, spiritual directors and others in the caring professions who are interested in the areas of aging, dreamwork, and spirituality. I have over 30 years of experience as a psychotherapist and almost 10 years of experience as a supervisor and mentor. I am particularly drawn to working with those who wish to explore aspects of the unconscious and to integrate this learning into their practice. I am of the understanding that skillful therapists do their own inner work, hence my style of supervision integrates self-awareness with personal development teachings and exercises. I will guide you on how to work with dreams, and the use of meditation and self-inquiry.
