Hi, I’m Garet and I’m a certified IMAGO therapist and presenter for Getting the Love You Want couples’ workshops and Keeping the Love You Find workshops for individuals. I’m also certified in Bioenergetic Analysis, a somatic psychotherapy. I have been in private practice as a therapist since 1986. Thank you for taking the time to learn more about me.
I have been on a mission my entire life: a mission to understand my self and the world around us through the relationships people form with one another and the ways we come to know ourselves. My innate curiosity and love of travel have taken me all over the world to learn more about cultures, people, and how we create and maintain connections. And, while each culture has distinct characteristics, at our core we all quest for love, respect, and understanding. With curiosity, creativity, and compassion, I can help you along your journey to an abundant life of love and fulfillment.
Heal the Body, Heal the Mind
Our minds and bodies are inextricably linked. Memories tied up in one, affect the other. In order to heal and grow from our past, we must address both the mind and body. I draw from a rich and diverse background of healing techniques and psychotherapy experience including Expressive Arts Therapy, Eye Movement Desensitization and Re-processing (EMDR), and addictions, in addition to Imago Couples Therapy and Bioenergetic Analysis. Together, we will work to use the modalities best suited to healing your past and paving the way to a brighter future.
Healing Relationships Around the Globe
As a conference keynote speaker and workshop facilitator, I have presented at local, national, and international conferences. In addition to offering psychotherapy in my private practice with individuals and couples, I am available for workshops and speaking engagements and your next conference, retreat, or workshop—whether in Kenya or Kentucky!
