Therapy - Mindfulness - MeditationGeneral Philosophy

Each individual’s situation is both unique and universal. Our experiences are shaped by our backgrounds, identities, and culture, including factors too complex to sum up in a simple diagnosis. As such I prefer to listen and learn to the stories and experiences that shape the people I work with and let that be my primary guide.

Of course, gender, sexual preference, class, race, and other factors, shape our experiences and conditioning. Understanding and appreciating these factors is fundamental to healing and growth. By bringing curiosity and interest to these aspects of your experience, I can respond most appropriately to what is needed to help you achieve balance and well-being. At the same time, there are aspects of being human that are common to us all. This is allows for dialogue, understanding and empathy across difference.

Individual Therapy

Individual therapy is tailored to each persons particular needs and capacities, combining awareness of current scientific and psychological research with the wisdom of contemplative traditions. We use a cognitive, behavioral, and psycho-dynamic approaches to support people struggling with anxiety, depression, mood disorders and self-esteem. We are trained in trauma informed approaches and have experience with addiction and recovery that helps us assist clients struggling with addictive disorders of various types. Out work is deeply informed by contemplative traditions, particularly Buddhist psychology and Yogic philosophy. It is also influenced by our creative backgrounds and a deep and abiding love of nature and ecology.
