I am passionate about working with people facing transitional challenges in their lives: those facing loss and grief; those growing out of established roles; those seeking to grow in ways that evoke fear and doubt; those yearning to free themselves from the grip of their trauma. When we are called to open to new ways of being, "shadow" emotions also emerge: anger, shame, sadness. I guide people, gently and skillfully, through the challenging but vital process of opening to those emotions by using methods validated by the latest developments in neuroscience. Those methods include: 1.) developing a mindful, witnessing capacity that helps short-circuit the reactivity that causes suffering; 2.) choosing kindness for self when possible; 3.) utilizing internal and external resources; 4.) exploring past events/emotions that still find harmful expression in your life; and 5.) expressing those emotions consciously.

More Info About My Practice
As a Contemplative Psychotherapist, I seek to help you orient from your open, compassionate nature as a means of working with a full range of past and present selves: those holding fear, anger, grief, shame. When we bring our essential self into relationship with those selves, we start a process of integration that is deeply healing and allows us to lead wakeful and fulfilling lives.
For how I view the healing process, please visit my blog post Soul Retrieval on my website.
My Role as a Therapist
I believe that opening to the whole circus of the self with as much kindness as possible is the path to freedom and contentment. My goal is to guide that opening and the practice of living it consciously. That process is not without its trials, however, for inevitably we must encounter the trauma/pain that has kept us stuck. That pain is also part of who we are and we can work with it compassionately and respectfully. My invitation is 'Come as you are. All of you is welcome.' You will find your strength in the opening, in a process that returns you to your power.
