DESCRIPTION OF CLINICAL PRACTICE

Psychotherapy offers a profound opportunity to deeply understand
ourselves and how we move in the world. By bringing mindful
awareness and compassion to the exploration of our lifes challenges,
we can discover ways in which our thoughts, beliefs, and behaviors
limit the full expression of our aliveness. Working with couples,
individual adults, and teens, I seek to help clear the path for each
person to connect to his or her innate wisdom. I strive to bring
compassion, understanding, and humor to my work with people who
are struggling with a myriad of issues, such as navigating difficult life
transitions, parenting, anxiety or depression, grief and loss, childhood
traumas, and other relational or spiritual challenges.

VIPASSANA/MEDITATION BACKGROUND

I have a regular sitting practice and I have sat over 20 retreats at
Spirit Rock and other retreat centers. I began teaching the teens at
Spirit Rock in 2002. I was on the Spirit Rock Teen Council for five
years and am currently a member of the Spirit Rock Family Council. I
also teach a monthly womens group and parenting classes at Spirit
Rock. I began the Community Dharma Leaders training program in
April 2015.

RELEVANT CLINCIAL TRAINING AND EXPERIENCE

I received my Masters in Transpersonal Psychology from JFK. I have
an extensive background in existential-humanistic psychology. I hold a
Masters in Education from Stanford and I am a member of the CA bar;
this professional background offers a breadth of perspective and
understanding. In 2005, I published an article in the Journal of
Humanistic Psychology entitled, Existential Psychotherapy with Adult
Survivors of Childhood Sexual Abuse. I have been heavily influenced
by work on attachment, body-awareness practices and interpersonal
neurobiology.
