I desire to live my life in Liminal Space. The in between. The betwixt. The unknown.
Most of my life I have desired comfort, the familiar, normalcy. Now, in my role as a wife, mom, and therapist I feel uncomfortable when I am comfortable. My goal is to live in the liminal space, opening myself to a bigger world.
Author Richard Rohr describes Liminal Space as: “where we are betwixt and between the familiar and the completely unknown. There alone is our old world left behind, while we are not yet sure of the new existence. That’s a good space where genuine newness can begin. Get there often and stay as long as you can by whatever means possible…This is the sacred space where the old world is able to fall apart, and a bigger world is revealed. If we don’t encounter liminal space in our lives, we start idealizing normalcy. The threshold is God’s waiting room. Here we are taught openness and patience as we come to expect an appointment with the divine Doctor.”
As a therapist, I find that if I am not willing to leave the familiar and embrace the unknown, I cannot walk with others searching for genuine newness, the divine appointment, a new existence.
Join me in my continued pursuit of Liminal Space.
Specializing in Mental Health treatment,
EMDR and Family & Couples Therapy
Anxiety is one of the most distressing moods that we experience. We address anxiety issues in therapy using many theories but starting with an approach called Cognitive Behavioural Therapy.
Depressive thoughts can result in self-criticism, negativity and hopelessness and can feel paralyzing. We address depression issues in therapy using many theories but primarily use an approach called Cognitive Behavioural Therapy.
Approaching difficulties in a family can be daunting but our approach is one of empowerment with a focus on solutions. For families, Ben provides care from a Systemic Family Theory approach.
Approaching difficulties in a marriage, partnership or family can be daunting but our approach is one of empowerment with a focus on solutions. For couples, we are trained to deliver a Gottman approach.
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)
Recovery from the disempowerment and disconnection resulting from trauma or disrupted attachment is based on the empowerment of the survivor and creation of new connections and meanings. Our approach to trauma therapy is to establish safety, reprocess using EMDR and to make new meaning of it for an improved future.
Dialectic Behavioural Therapy skills
DBT is used to treat behavioural and emotional problems, borderline personality disorder, anxiety, depression and eating disorders. We are trained to deliver DBT skills in a 1:1 setting.
