DESCRIPTION OF CLINICAL PRACTICE

Spiritual practice may leave us with unresolved questions, and we
need additional support for what life doles out in small or large
portions. Often whats needed is another person to help us uncover
our own inner resources that are hidden from view. These resources
are invaluable; we need to know them in ourselves, as ourselves, as
we explore our life the difficulties as well as the amazements.
My interest is in bringing kindness, respect, and curiosity to the
struggles that you are living with - whether they are quiet, unresolved
questions or deeply challenging obstacles. My intention is to be both a
compassionate witness and a strong ally - one who respects your
survival strategies, and advocates for your full aliveness. I help both
individuals and couples uncover beliefs, thoughts and feelings that
might be limiting expression, experience and vitality.
Please feel free to call for a free 20-minute phone consultation.

VIPASSANA/MEDITATION BACKGROUND

I have had a daily sitting practice now for over 18 years, and sit
retreats annually. Vipassana has been the backbone of my path. Time
and again, the wisdom of the Theravada teachings has gently or
pointedly shown me the way to a more easeful, open-hearted life. For
the past 14 years, I have also been a grateful student of the Diamond
Approach.
