My Approach to Helping

As a holistic psychotherapist for over 40 years, I have delighted in working with people using a wide variety of modalities. Whether it is Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, mindfulness meditation, homeopathy, sound healing, Bach Flower Remedies, dream work, journaling, affirmations, Buddhism, mindfulness, depth psychology, or anything else, all come together to support your health and well-being.

By respecting your individuality and providing a safe, confidential, non-judgmental environment I pave the way for us to collaboratively develop a therapeutic alliance, where trust flourishes and you feel comfortable sharing your deepest concerns and authentic self.

There are so many wonderful and effective ways to help with the kaleidoscope of challenges we all face. The beauty of holistic psychotherapy is its integration of theories and practices from psychology, philosophy, yoga, homeopathy, nutrition, ancient Sanskrit mantras, poetry, meditation, herbs, etc. into a cohesive whole, all of which help balance mind, body, and spirit.

As the yogis say, all that you seek is already within you. Helping you create a loving, compassionate relationship with yourself, while catalyzing your intuition and wisdom to enhance other areas of your life, is the most meaningful work I know.

I welcome the opportunity to collaborate with you on old andor current issues, and help you find that peace that really does lie within.

Please feel free to call me and ask any questions you might have.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

Actually, I find that all issues boil down to some very basic themes. My goal is to compassionately and intelligently guide people to their truest self. That path encompasses self-compassion, self-acceptance, and patience with the process of one's personal evolution.

Had a Negative Therapy Experience?

As many people come to me after having had unhelpful therapy experiences, this is a question close to my heart. To make a very basic analogy, let's say you went to a restaurant and had a unpleasant experience. You wouldn't swear off all restaurants, would you? Therapists are people, and it can take a few tries before you find someone who is a good fit for you. (This website has a number of helpful articles on how to carefully choose a therapist.)
