Profile
“As an artist, I am drawn to gestalt therapy because it is experiential, creative, and focuses on the process and present moment just like creating a work of art.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
As an artist, I am drawn to gestalt therapy because it is experiential, creative, and focuses on the process and present moment just like creating a work of art.
What should someone know about working with you?
I practice gestalt therapy, which focuses on what is happening in the moment and finding solutions in the present time. In order to move from talking about your life to the immediacy of your lived experience in the moment, I will often ask you questions like, “What is it like to share that experience now with me?” or “What do you feel when you talk about that with me?” In a typical session, I invite you to tune into your body and notice what is happening to your body as you speak. Integrating an awareness of body sensations with your narrative can help us understand how you process information. I may experiment with dream work, guided imagery, chair work, and other techniques to help bring past and current struggles to life in the therapeutic setting.
