Those whom I work with all have one thing in common—pain. Regardless of its form, nervousness, sadness, substance misuse, difficult thoughts and/or traumatic memories, attempting to cope with this pain has led to more suffering. There now exists a gap between the life they are living and the one they desire. Rather than living a rich meaningful life, life has become about avoiding, numbing or distracting the pain away. Does this should like you? If so, know this— you are not broken, you are stuck.
My approach to stuckness involves working together to cultivate new methods for interacting with pain, ones that don’t result in more suffering. We will work to cultivate clarity around where you have been and where you’d like to go; giving you a deeper understanding of how to create a rich and meaningful life despite the pain. I utilize humor and metaphors along with hands on practice to create an experience that is both informative and transformational.
My special interests include substance misuse, trauma, and military populations.
