Message to clients

Our civilization has done a lot for us, but one way it has fallen short is in providing the opportunity for reflection. Demands to do more and do it faster crowd in from the outside and take up residence inside us. Having a regular opportunity to slow back down to a human pace and take stock with an empathic, experienced person giving you their undivided attention can be enormously restorative. Emotions and thoughts you literally don't have time for in your day to day life—but which are having powerful effects, out of your awareness--come into the light in a safe environment, where you can integrate, revise, or transcend them as needed. Over time, your range of motion improves--in emotional, social, cognitive, vocational, and family contexts. Enhanced spontaneity and improved control complement rather than contradict one another. And life feels better.
