My Approach to Helping


Not only do you have a soul, you are soul. You are the Light Within, shining through the prism known as the self. Like a diamond, the self is multifaceted; the person you were five or ten years ago, for example, still exists. The self, then, is made up of selves and each of them has a voice. All of that inner noise can drown out the voice of the Real You, and confusion results. My role is to help you truly listen, the first step toward greater freedom.

As a spiritually fluent psychotherapist, who is also an intuitive and a rabbi, I use teachings from religious traditions (Christianity, Judaism, Hinduism), techniques from psychotherapies (Cognitive-Behavioral, Internal Family Systems, Spiritual Self-Schema), and wisdom from empowerment methodologies (Insight Meditation, Spiritual Life Coaching, Twelve-Step Recovery) to facilitate the emergence of the Real You.

NEW RELEASE: The PSALM Cards and Messages from the Psalms by Rabbi Robert dos Santos Teixeira, LCSW (Schiffer Publishing)--filled with affirmations, breathing exercises, mantras, prayers, and visualizations--is a tool for meditation as well as an oracle. Each hand-painted image communicates a succinct message, which the companion book explains in detail.

May the Light you carry increase!

More Info About My Practice

Remember, Awakening is a process. First, you think it, then you say it, then you believe it, then you feel it, then you know it, then you become it.

To help you step more deeply into Supreme Truth, wherein true clarity and healing abide--wherein you will find the Real You--I offer you this mantra, which should be repeated aloud or silently throughout the day:

I AM Ancient Light!
I AM Eternal Light!
I AM Infinite Light!
I AM One Light!
I AM Unchanging Light!
I AM the Light Within!
I AM the Light Within You!
I AM the Light Within Everyone and Everything!
I AM the Light Within All!
I AM Light Within Light Within Light Within Light Within Light...
