"My therapeutic approach is rooted in the notion that we as people are living out lives in our bodies which include our brain, nervous system, muscle, bone, skin and environment. For you as my client this means that I listen to you, I watch you move, sit, smile and emote. I pay great attention to what you are saying and how you are saying it with your entire body. I will help you develop a relationship to your self-awareness and the possibility of creating the life changes you seek."
