My job is to listen to you and witness the many aspects of your personality. I hold a center balance point for you in your own internal and external conflicts while you are learning to hold that center for yourself. The Voice Dialogue facilitation I use honors all aspects of your life and holds an unconditional place in which you can develop new insights about yourself and strengthen your ability to make healthy choices. This is practical work with practical results. It helps you to use and balance all of who you are without blaming, discarding, fixing, or rejecting any part of yourself.
My goal is to be both a guide on a journey to greater consciousness and also to work toward putting myself out of a job. I teach usable skills that you can practice and continue to learn on your own. Our work together can be as long or short term as you like, and you can expect each session to be valuable in and of itself.
You really can change and grow without giving up any part of yourself. The secret is in learning to balance between the opposite sides of who you are and creating a capacity for centered choice. If you have struggled with the same patterns of behavior and conflict over and over again in job situations, decision-making, or personal relationships, it is possible to finally "graduate" from these repetitive patterns and move on to a new way of life. Our work together can help you create a grounded and nurturing relationship with yourself so that you can meet life situations and relationships from a place of wholeness and self respect.
WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT-
People who do Voice Dialogue work with me find that they are better at connecting with others and communicating their feelings appropriately – they learn to resolve challenging situations with much less stress and conflict. If you are in a life transition, this work can be very helpful in both letting go of old patterns that no longer serve you and also opening up to new possibilities. Decisions also become easier when you can truly honor both sides of yourself and not get stuck in either/or thinking. And, most people who work with me report more "breathing room" inside themselves, more ability to access their inner strengths, and an expanded range of self expression. Areas of Expertise: My work is especially effective for people who are struggling with relationship issues or life transitions, who feel immobilized by their own inner conflicts, or for those who are actively seeking a deeper sense of balance, wholeness, and creative expression in their lives. The Voice Dialogue process I use is a gentle, non-judgmental approach that honors all of who you are and helps you to change and grow without giving up any part of yourself. I hold a deep respect for you in your life process. My best tools are my intutive ability and practiced imagination that help me perceive the inner dynamics of your life situation. I am an experienced business person and published author, and I have more than 25 years experience as a counselor, Voice Dialogue facilitator and teacher.
