Imaginative and Integrative Therapy
When our sense of self feels limited so does our ability to imagine alternatives and integrate positive changes.
Do you notice how negative thoughts or unresolved feelings; like sadness, anger, fear or grief affect your relationship with yourself and significant others in your life? Are you stuck in a limiting story that keeps you from making the changes you desire in your relationships, lifestyle, health or career?
Difficult thoughts and unmanageable feelings often arise when some part of us feels misunderstood or cut off from our potential. When these thoughts and feelings are left unattended it can be difficult to identify our needs or communicate them to others. Grief, Depression, and Anxiety can arise. You may have come to rely on defensive patterns of behavior or utilize Substances or other coping strategies to manage your feelings. It is hard not to become identified with these states which can negatively influence self-perceptions, physical wellbeing and impact our ability to experience intimate and supportive relationships. Therapy is an opportunity to cultivate more authentic lifestyle choices that align with your physical, mental and emotional health.
