My Philosophy of Care

I believe that any of us has a need to feel truly safe in order to begin to open.

A relationship of trust and stability is crucial in order to safely talk about needs, your actual abilities and difficulties, and how to ask for help. Our work will include attention to the ‘container’ of the therapy so that you can bring your whole self to sessions. Safety and pacing are carefully attended to in collaboration with you as the client.

Your need for your unique pace is met with tenderness and clarity in my sessions. The approach is non-hierarchical where I bring an expertise that meets your knowledge of yourself as we collaborate for healing, comfort and new learning.

The morning wind spreads its fresh smell. We must get up and take that in, that wind that lets us live. Breathe before it’s gone. ~Rumi

Self Care through an OT lens

OT has a reputation for pointing out practical things as life-giving and foundational – like ‘Brush your Teeth’, ‘Eat’, ‘Wash the Dishes’. Yet OT has always been unconventional in that it has long included “how” we do things, not just what we do or when. The intangible “hows” are often central.

So I like this OT FB group posting. (And speaking of remembering unconventional “activities”, the below link on Grounding 2 has been re-placed. Sometimes a poem is essential before any tooth brushing can happen: Billy likely  agrees.)
