Although I am certified in Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, I do not consider myself primarily a somatic psychotherapist. I am an integrative therapist. The therapeutic approach with which I am most comfortable, and most grounded in, is a relational psychodynamic one, and at times I integrate a Sensorimotor approach, and a Zen Buddhist perspective. This means that in addition to our exploring how your past influences your present situation (psychodynamic), we will also pay attention to the unfolding quality of our emotional experience working together (relational analysis), and occasionally I might invite you to explore in real time how what you are talking about has its physical counterpart in your body (Sensorimotor). In this way, we both honor your “story,” and at times see through it, to contact what is most fundamental in your present moment experience. We can recognize then that the barriers limiting our inner freedom are of our own conceptual making (Zen). As the old Buddhist saying goes, "Pain is unavoidable, suffering (being the subjective element) is optional." Within the subjective, together, we can discover and practice new ways of seeing, thinking, acting, and Being.
