I am a licensed psychotherapist with over 35 years of experience, specializing in integrated health and wellness. Trained in family systems, mind/body health, mindfulness, trauma work, psychosynthesis, expressive arts and equine-assisted therapy, over the course of my career, I've developed a series of workshops helping women feel more confident and empowered to meet the challenges they face.
Depending on your needs, my approach may include cognitive behavioral therapy, solution-oriented therapy, psychodynamic processes, somatic psychology, psycho-education, spirituality, mindfulness, hypnotherapy, psychosynthesis, expressive arts (writing, collage, drawing), meditation, visualization and dream-work.
My specialties are working with -
Fear, Anxiety, Aging, Living with a Chronic Illness, Creative Blocks, Relationship Issues, Desired Habit Change, Exploring Places Where We’re Stuck, Depression, Grief and Loss and How to Create a Life With Meaning,
I'm a big believer in seeing life challenges, especially the most painful ones, as a catalyst for self-discovery, personal growth and positive change. I know. It's the last thing we want to hear when we feel like we’re fighting for our life….which most often we are!
Approaching what challenges us, with curiosity and compassion (rather than judgement), we begin to learn how to honor all parts of ourselves…..even those most difficult and painful parts. It’s from this place we give ourselves the gift of connecting to our most authentic and true self. We learn what we value and how to take steps toward creating the life we want. "We begin to hear the heartbeat of our own why." - Sharon David, PhD.
My goal in working with you is to offer a warm and nurturing environment, as well as practical tools, where you feel safe to explore and work with your challenges. To engage them as an ally on your journey to deeper health and wellness.
"Healing isn't about finding peace outside of the storm. It's about finding peace right in it's center. Accepting fear and pain as an ally, rather than push it away, opens the possibility for healing at a very deep level." - Melissa West
- Stress, Anxiety
- Self esteem
I also have experience in Relationship, Family, Trauma and abuse, Intimacy-related, Eating, Sleeping, Parenting, Anger, Depression
