For over 40 years I've worked with individuals, couples and groups facing a full range of the many challenges that life presents such as: depression, anxiety, grief, addiction, couple conflicts, all manner of traumas etc. My clientele includes people from all walks of life, ages, sexual preferences, ethnic and religious backgrounds. In addition, I provide consultation and counselling to those wanting to optimize their talents and abilities. I see clients as social, physical, intellectual and spiritual beings, thus all of these areas are potentially addressed in our work together.
I feel blessed to have spent twelve years in Asian monasteries and temples in India, Japan, Burma and Nepal studying under some of the greatest wisdom teachers of our time. As a result of those years, a unique blend of the wisdom teachings and therapeutic modalities naturally evolved to help clients.
I utilize a holistic approach which might include CBT, talk therapies, lifestyle coaching regarding diet, exercise, meditation practices and evidence based energy therapies such as EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique). I am available exclusively for online and telephone counselling and thus work with clients located anywhere in the world.
