I welcome any adult individual or couple regardless of race, gender, religion, sexual preference, national origin or disability.
You may come to see me because of stress about what you are thinking, feeling, or doing, or challenges in your relationships. You may feel socially isolated or stressed about world or political events. Your full range of feelings and all your parts or voices are valid and free to be present with me.
I utilize the evidence-based approach of Emotion Focused Therapy as a framework to explore your felt experience and bring harmony to different parts of yourself. In the first few sessions I will work to understand the concerns that motivated you to see me and goals you have for counseling.
I may also share with you mindfulness tools from my over 20 years of study in yoga, meditation, and nondual self-inquiry with many preeminent teachers both in the U.S. and while living in India, as the evidence is strong and growing that these practices can bring profound benefits to mental and emotional wellness.
I have a special interest in exploring and integrating the lasting impact of spiritual, kundalini, entheogen/psychedelic, and other extreme experiences that are frequently misdiagnosed as mental illness. These experiences can often be distressing and disabling and, combined with a history of trauma, often take significant time, space, and support to make peace with.
I believe you are the expert of your own experience and that is where I start, by listening to your experience. If you feel drawn to meet with me, send an email message to set up a free 15 minute phone consultation.
