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

Hot Days

Ice is Nice.

This is the time for intense creativity. We are perhaps still wanting to stay in [covid], and yet it is too hot to stay in [weather]. It is too hot to go out [weather, fires]. The government is unsure if we are to be out or in [covid]. The economists think we should be out [$]. Docs and nurses want us to stay in [covid]. Some have to work [$]. Some can’t [$]. Some think we should travel [$], some think we should not [fires, gas, $].

It’s hard to know.

So whatever your leanings, grab some ice, a thermos, ice tea. Go sit in the shade – in the moments or hours that you can – with a good poem, podcast, book, whatever. These are the days. It can be OK.
