Therapy for Mind and Body
As a psychologist and acupuncturist based in Anchorage, Alaska, I work with people with emotional, interpersonal, and stress-related concerns, as well as chronic health conditions of all kinds, which in my experience always involve both psychological and physical components.
With years of training and practice in both professions, I am able to provide an array of methods and approaches in working with each person based on their unique circumstances and needs. For some the focus is more psychological; for others, the focus is more physical; for many, a comprehensive, integrative approach is the path to mind-body healing.
- Psychotherapy: therapy and counseling, incorporating Jungian, existential, somatic, relational, and transpersonal psychologies as well as influences from a variety of traditional cultures, contemplative practices, and spiritual traditions. For Alaskans living outside the Southcentral area, I offer teletherapy (psychotherapy by phone or video conferencing)–please inquire.
- Acupuncture: acupuncture and other classical modalities of Chinese medicine such as herbal medicine, nutritional counseling, qigong, and others.
- Integrative health psychology: an innovative approach to addressing a variety of health concerns, incorporating psychological, behavioral, and nutritional methods, as well as mindfulness-based and embodied practices.
- Mindfulness, qigong, meditation, and other practices and methods from the contemplative, intuitive, and energetic traditions of psychology and Chinese medicine; these can be incorporated in psychotherapy, acupuncture, and health psychology sessions.
The above methods can be undertaken separately or in a variety of combinations, depending on your needs and inclinations. Whether on their own or in an integrative approach, they each have the capacity to help relieve many forms of suffering in mind, body, and spirit, as well as the capacity to help us to live in deepening connection with our hearts—which is the truest form of medicine.
I would be happy to answer your questions, to explore your specific concerns, and to discuss ways in which my approach(es) might be helpful for you; to schedule an appointment, or for further information, please feel free to call.
