Announcement icon During this very challenging time, many are needing supportive counselling. Please feel free to contact me for telephone or video sessions.
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.
