A method of healing called Focusing is one of the most powerful I’ve found. It breaks things down into simple steps that anyone can follow. And, more importantly, it facilitates a powerful sense of safe presence within the client. In doing so, it creates an environment where genuine personal change is possible.
I started my own Focusing practice in 2009 and later, in 2018, trained for two years to become a professional teacher and guide.
Additionally, I’ve taught all levels of Focusing to small groups and individual clients. I’ve facilitated and led introductory sessions with local groups. I’ve spent over 100 hours guiding private sessions. And, finally, I’ve completed advanced level training in an adjunct modality called Wholebody Focusing.
I am certified to teach and guide by the International Focusing Institute.
I am certified as a Progressive Recovery Coach by Dr. Michael Pantalon, a psychologist at Yale University with decades of experience.
He certifies coaches through his Center for Progressive Recovery. A Progressive Recovery Coach is a professional coach who helps addicted individuals and/or their loved ones navigate the best possible path through the complicated and often difficult recovery industry. We use an evidence-based approach as much as possible, thereby improving chances for long-term recovery and savings on health care costs.
