My approach to psycho-therapy or life coaching is to meet the individual where she/he is at and to simply facilitate in one’s awareness, healing and future goals that are attainable and realistic.
I incorporate the mind, body and soul in my approach to healing and improving one’s life as our mental health is an intricate balance of all three. I utilize many Gestalt approaches (Please see summary below) and interventions in order to expediate and facilitate an individual’s growth.
I look forward to meeting you and walking beside you as you work on and succeed in improving your every day physical and mental health.
Gestalt therapy is a client-centered approach to psychotherapy that helps clients focus on the present and understand what is really happening in their lives right now, rather than what they may perceive to be happening based on past experience. Instead of simply talking about past situations, clients are encouraged to experience them, perhaps through re-enactment. Through the gestalt process, clients learn to become more aware of how their own negative thought patterns and behaviors are blocking true self-awareness and making them unhappy.
When It’s Used
Gestalt therapy can help clients with issues such as anxiety, depression, self-esteem, relationship difficulties, and even physical ones like migraine headaches, ulcerative colitis, and back spasms. Good candidates for gestalt therapy are those who are interested in working on their self-awareness but may or may not understand the role they play in their own unhappiness and discomfort. Gestalt techniques are often used in combination with body work, dance, art, drama, and other therapies.
