DESCRIPTION OF CLINICAL PRACTICE

For the past 20 years, I have been working with adults, both individuals and couples as well
as groups on the following concerns:

Spiritual and meditation issues, relationship issues, life transitions, personal transformation, anxiety,
depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, eating disorders, chronic pain, addictions of various sorts,
and core beliefs.

Using either brief or longer term psychotherapy, I offer EMDR, Gendlin Focusing and
Somatic Experiencing for trauma resolution, cognitive-behavioral therapy for anxiety
and depression, guided visualization, dream work, and Vedic astrology counseling. I also
support life style changes, including nutrition, meditation and stress reduction as key to life transformations.

VIPASSANA/MEDITATION BACKGROUND

I have been regularly meditating for 35 years. In 1992, I sat my first longer
retreat at IMS (Massachusetts), and have done 7-10 day retreats annually at SRMC and with Zen teacher
Adyashanti for the past 5 years. Currently I attend a weekly women's group at SRMC as well as a parenting
group.
