Counseling and Psychotherapy for Dealing with the Human Condition
As human beings, there are certain experiences that we all must contend with. There is simply no escaping the fact that we will all experience relationships with other humans, some of which may feel nurturing and supportive, others which may not. We will all have emotions, thoughts, feelings and body sensations that will lend themselves to both pleasurable and painful encounters. We will all have dreams and desires about the elements that we’d like our lives to consist of and people or situations that we have an aversion toward, or things that we fear. This is the human condition.
As a Holistic Therapist in Asheville, NC, counseling individuals as they navigate their way through this complex experience of being human is my passion and inspiration. It is my aim to both support and gently challenge any ways of being that are no longer serving you while exploring your life situation or transition. By taking advantage of our personal and professional relationship that develops in therapy, I feel that you will be better able to make the changes that you want to make in your life.

Holistic Counseling with Whole Self Therapy:
What To Expect
My perspective on healing is that all beings are inherently whole, comprised of many different parts of self, including mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual components that are seeking integration. When these different parts come together, we may experience that union as inner-peace, feeling centered, balanced, or as a general sense of well-being. In my psychotherapy practice, I use of a variety of treatment modalities in addition to traditional ‘talk therapy’ which may include drawing on the body’s wisdom to aid in the healing process, exploring the issues you are facing creatively through imagery and art, or cultivating awareness and compassion through mindfulness practices. These may include the following:
l Buddhist Psychology & Mindfulness Meditation
l Spiritual/Trans-personal Psychology
l Dream Exploration & Jungian Dream-Work
l Guided Imagery & Psychosynthesis
l Somatic & Body-Oriented Psychotherapy
l Eye-Movement and Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)
