Psychotherapy for spiritual, emotional,
mental, & ancestral healing


Every therapist is unique, and finding one that will fit you best is not always easy. So here are some questions that can help you see whether I may be a good therapist for you:

  • Are you on a spiritual path?

  • Is self-discovery for the purpose of deepening your connection a priority for you?

  • Do you believe (or have heard people say) that you are "too sensitive"?

  • Do you like to think deeply about things, process various interactions and arguments repeatedly, and try to read books and articles on how to understand things better?

  • Do you sometimes find yourself feeling uneasy in various social situations?

  • Do you take in a lot of energetic information and struggle with how to process it?

  • Do you tend to take care of everyone before yourself?

  • Is anger a challenge for you to feel and express?

  • Do you struggle with physical symptoms in addition to emotional ones?

If the answer is "yes" to many of these, then you are the kind of person that I likely can help. All of these link up and can be worked through using psychoanalytic psychotherapy.

I work with individual adults (ages 18+). My specialties and interests include:

  • Dark night of the soul

  • Dream work

  • Processing spiritual experiences

  • Connecting with the Earth and learning to open up to the spiritual dimensions

  • Anxiety & Depression (often go hand-in-hand, though one or the other may be more pronounced or challenging)

  • Relationship issues

  • Body & Psychosomatic issues

  • Grief/Bereavement

  • Childhood trauma, big or small

  • The creative process and creative blocks (writing, art, singing, acting, etc.)

  • Issues around boundaries, care-taking, and self-care

  • Therapy for healers (in training or otherwise) and any other practitioners who work with people (acupuncturists, massage therapists, and so on).

  • Empaths and Highly Sensitive People

My other, personal & professional interests include:

  • Shamanism & Shamanic Work

  • Writing

  • Holistic healing, mind-body connection
  • Near-Death Experiences (NDEs)
  • Psychedelic experiences & ceremonies
  • Singing

  • Art & Creativity

  • Connecting with the Earth

  • Existential issues

Psychoanalysis has come quite far since the days of Freud and the whole silent analyst sitting behind the couch. Now, psychoanalytic psychotherapy involves two people talking -- whether you want to stay seated or lie down is up to you in any particular session. You will begin to tell me your story, probably beginning with things you are currently struggling with. And as you do, I will be listening to it in a particular way and begin to pull out some patterns in your relationships, as well as emotional ways you live in the world. Then we will work together to see if there may be other ways of relating, getting your needs met, setting boundaries, and so on. My personal style is one I would call Relational, but I pull threads from many other psychoanalytic schools of thought. What I am most concerned with is connecting with who you are as a human being than applying some theory.

This is the work of learning where you are inhibited, how you hold yourself back from expressing the fullness of who you are -- both the wonderful parts of you and the more challenging places. This is why therapy can be more effective than self-help -- because in therapy you are in an actual relationship that can be explored and worked on, and one in which your efforts and your feelings are validated and supported. It is your laboratory for trying out feelings you've closed yourself off to, for making mistakes, and for seeing how you might have twisted yourself into a pretzel trying to fit the world.

Psychotherapy works best when it is done at least once a week. Some people choose twice-weekly, or even thrice-weekly sessions. This will depend on your needs, and after I get to know you to some degree, we will discuss it together and I will make a recommendation as to the frequency of sessions that I think would be most useful for you.
