PERSPECTIVES IS A HOLISTIC PSYCHOTHERAPY PRACTICE SERVING THE WHOLE PERSON AS PART OF A COMPLETE SYSTEM THROUGH A COMPREHENSIVE APPROACH.
Hello and welcome to our website. It has been built to give you a sense of who we are and to address some questions you may have as you consider therapy options for yourself, your child, or your family. Perspectives is founded on the premise that all human beings have an innate desire for balance, healing, and growth. How each person perceives these concepts will be unique to you. We see each client as a whole person–mind, body, and spirit. We are ready to meet you where you are and to help you meet your personal goals. We are here to partner with you on your journey. While life has the potential to be joyful and fulfilling, at times we all face challenges. This is part of the human condition and none of us is immune. While we may generally have the resilience to cope and to move through difficult experiences, there are those times when we become aware that additional support and resources may be helpful in navigating difficult circumstances, healing painful experiences from the past; or when we become aware of thoughts, feelings, or behaviors that we would like to address in order to live a richer life. Therapy can be a constructive resource offering a safe space to heal and grow. Clearly all therapists and therapies are not the same. If you are considering therapy you may not know what type of therapy would work best for you or what characteristics you are looking for in a therapist. At Perspectives all our therapists and therapy interns have solid foundations in traditional clinical work and education. Additionally, our commitment to excellence in therapy has resulted in our integration of progressive treatment modalities that are supported by current research. As dedicated clinicians at Perspectives we share many values and interests, yet we also each have additional areas of specialized training and expertise. This allows us to offer clients the most effective and individualized treatment options. You may have a clear idea of what you want or donʼt want. I invite you to look around our website to get a sense of what we are all about. You may want to read about the various therapeutic approaches we offer at Perspectives. I encourage you to read the biographies of our therapists and therapy interns. If after exploring our site, you feel that Perspectives may be a good fit for you, the next step may be to call one of our therapists and speak with them about your needs and questions. If you are unsure of what therapist resonates for you, I invite you to call or email me directly. There is no fee for your initial phone consultation. We can talk about your particular situation and Iʼll be happy to assist you in determining what therapeutic approaches or clinician may be most congruent with your personal needs and goals.
As a Holistic Psychotherapist, I carry the belief that we are born in perfect form — “whole” and ready to recognize and share our unique magnificence, and to receive what the world has to teach and offer us. The challenges and curve balls of our life experience chip away at this knowing. We then spend the rest of our days, should we choose to live consciously and most joyfully, recalling what we knew from the beginning, unveiling the essence of who we truly are …finding our way back into the light of our divinity and destiny.
The only thing in our way to living consistently in our total bliss is ourselves. And the only path to finding and living there lies within us. Through our attention to, and alignment with, the four dimensions of our being — our body, mind, heart and spirit — we are most equipped to live our best life to the fullest…experiencing wonder, joy, and overall wellbeing. Only by listening to the wisdom of our bodies, training our active minds to choose the beliefs, perceptions and assumptions that fuel our passions and potential, opening our hearts to love ourselves and our fellow travelers, and hearing our spirit’s calling….will we create the life of which our dreams are made.
If we see every day and every experience as a potential gift and learning experience, then nothing is for naught. Life becomes our most interesting classroom and our most stimulating playground. As we live fully present, every moment will count with each and every breath.
We are all on this journey, capable of everyday alchemy (transformation)…leading us to our own versions of higher ground living. As we do so, we evolve our consciousness to embody and express our most authentic selves with purpose, grace, ease and celebration.
I look forward to experiencing and sharing this wondrous road with all of you.
