Our relationship is structured for safety and connection and growth, and has certain boundaries that define our respective responsibilities in the work we do.
I, as the therapist, strive to do four main things in our work together:
- Be fully present with you to promote the development of a secure base from which you may explore and integrate all the aspects of who you truly are.
- Facilitate and track the felt sense of bodily-rooted emotional experience.
- Engage emotionally with you in order to co-regulate difficult feelings and deepen and strengthen your own capacity to deal with them.
- Be a sounding board for your own inner wisdom, reflecting back your innate, wired-in disposition for healing.
You, as the client contribute your own special and personal knowledge of you. You bring a commitment to work on the goals we agree to. You always have the right to withdraw from therapy, and at no point will you be forced to do anything you do not choose to do.
