Having a good relationship with the self leads to inner peace. Whether or not we are not in a relationship with another human being, how we relate to ourselves determines how we feel. When we turn toward ourselves with compassion and kindness we feel connected. When we turn away unconsciously or deliberately, we feel disconnected, empty, lonely, cut-off, depressed, bored, lost, needy, etc.
I view relationship as the vehicle within which we can do our deepest work, because it is in relationship that our core psychological material gets activated. Working with the relationship allows us to seize the opportunity to connect with ourselves more deeply and respond from an authentic grounded place, rather than from the place of patterning, reactivity, blame or victimhood. I use the relationship as the place to transform.
I am a very directive and engaged therapist. I use inquiry and practice that will help you deepen into your experience, get you into the here and now, connect with yourself so you can consciously do things differently. When you connect with yourself in this direct way, transformation happens.
