DESCRIPTION OF CLINICAL PRACTICE

Vipassana meditation offers us a unique way to see deeply into our present moment experience, penetrating the greed, hatred, and delusion that distorts our true nature. By utilizing mindfulness, I support clients in gaining insight into their thoughts, actions, and behaviors. It is through this insight and equanimity that the door opens, cultivating compassionate, wise responses. I have found Vipassana insight meditation and Buddhism to be a profound vehicle for self-growth and liberation from suffering, not just for a client, but also for myself. I feel honored to be able to offer mindfulness based psychotherapies to clients and see the dharma unfold in their lives.

VIPASSANA MEDITATION EXPERIENCE

I have had a daily sitting practice since 2015 when I first found Vipassana meditation. I have been to 1-2 retreats yearly at Spirit Rock, ranging from 4 day to 14 day retreats. My practice is primarily Vipassana meditation, but I have done extensive Metta practice as well, which I have found to be of profound benefit personally.
