Customized sessions may include techniques such as:
"Prepare to Prosper"
Individual Self-Care Sessions
Activate, Reconnect, and Transform! The power to transform yourself lies within you, and it begins with taking care of yourself - choosing courage and relinquishing fear, accepting the lesson and releasing the emotional pain, moving through the difficulty and emerging with renewed understanding, compassion, and acceptance of ourselves and others. Taking care of ourselves in our interactions with others includes setting boundaries and limits that protect our time, energetic resources and wellbeing, and becoming honest and forthcoming about needs and wants. In these sessions which focus on developing and maintaining self-care in all areas of your life, you will be guided on a gentle healing journey where you will gain clarity about your path and insight into critical areas of your life. Through tools such as Guided Visualization, Mindfulness, Self-soothing, Grounding techniques, Cognitive processing and Insight-based activities, you will be able to find the path of your own self-care.

"Caring for the Connection"
Consultation Sessions for Couples & Families
"Love is not the icing on the cake of life. It is a basic primary need, like oxygen or water. Once we understand and accept this, we can more easily get to the heart of relationship problems" (Dr. Sue Johnson - "Hold Me Tight" (2008)
With an intimate and compassionate focus on the needs of the individuals as well as the needs of the bond which connects them, we will explore unresolved issues, unsaid words, unheard thoughts, unexpressed feelings, and unknown wants, and we will gently bring them to the surface from their depths as we undo dysfunctional patterns. We will learn how each person wants to be taken care of, as we each understand the necessity of taking care of ourselves. These sessions will help each person in the union to connect more deeply and meaningfully, and to move through the process of trust, authenticity, openness, appreciation, and transformation.

"For a seed to achieve its greatest expression, it must come completely undone. The shell cracks, it's insides come out and everything changes. To someone who doesn't understand growth, it would look like complete destruction." (Cynthia Occelli)
"Believe in the Possibility of Impossibility"
Learning, Exploring, and Discovering Through Guided Play! "Often the hands will solve a mystery that the intellect has struggled with in vain" (Carl Jung). Play is considered to be children's language of communication, and it is also widely used in work with teenagers, couples, families and adults in need of a form of expression when words alone just aren't enough. Through the use of Sand Tray, symboolic figures, and other therapeutic modalities, you not only discover yourself as your center, but you are also able to work within a powerful safe container for deep inner exploration.Therapeutic activities which incorporate natural materials such as wood, stone, water, fabric, and sand may be used for their grounding, calming, and soothing elements while also facilitating a connection to each individual's own natural inner healing capacities. Adults, children, and groups will be able to work with materials that facilitate self-awareness, self-insight, and self-discovery. Some healing intentions include: Reflection, Insight, Gratitude, Surrender, Acceptance, Forgiveness, Letting Go, Connection, Feeling Our Feelings, Owning Our Power, and Gaining Balance.
