I provide both individual and group process sessions. I ground our time together in a very simple but deep process.
What To Expect: I do not use a cookie-cutter approach to my clients or group participants. Each session is based on our conversations and what you seek to explore. I adhere to the highest standards of confidentiality.
Three Synergistic Modalities: I employ three modalities in my practice - Reiki, Hypnotherapy/Guided Visualization, and Transformational Art Process.
Reiki – Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words: Rei which means "God/Goddess Wisdom or the Higher Universal Power" and Ki which is "life force energy". Therefore, Reiki is actually "spiritually guided life force energy." I will incorporate Reiki to relax the body and create a positive, safe energetic space.
Hypnotherapy/Guided Visualization – Hypnosis is a natural, organic, relaxed state of being. Most of us experience various degrees of hypnotic states on a daily basis such as daydreaming, reading or watching television. Hypnotherapy/Guided Visualization calls forth the relaxed state of hypnosis allowing you to tap into the deep wisdom of your subconscious mind. Hypnotherapy will be used to quiet the mind and focus creative, healing intent through guided and individualized visualization.
Transformational Art Process – “The Work”. Viewing art and the making of art has transformative effects upon the psyche and soul. To engage in the creative process is to engage directly with your Inner Healer or innate healing energies. The old saying that a picture is worth a thousand words is incredibly potent in this context. The images you will be creating are akin to dreams and are mirrors of your Soul. In each session you will engage in a simple but powerful art process where your inner journey will be revealed to you.
Individual Sessions: Consist of an initial check-in to discuss any issues/insights and may include hypnotherapy, guided visualization and/or a Reiki session. We will devote the next segment for collage/art making and discussion of art piece/process. I will also ask you to establish a collage/art journal and create one collage/art piece per day that suits your unique exploration. Session time is generally 1.5 hours.
One-Time Process Group Session (2 or more): I can provide a one-time group process for organizations, work groups and friends. These one-time group process session include discussion, introductions, collage art process and discussion of each person's piece. Session time is variable depending on group need - 1.5 hours up to 2.5 hours.
On-Going Group Sessions (2 or more): On-going groups meet once per week. I will initially meet with each group member individually to introduce the process and for each member to get to know me and ask any questions. Group sessions will include discussion, check-in, group art process, and discussion/process of each group member's completed piece. Session time is generally 2 hours.
