My ideal client is a person who believes in one's readiness to change one's life and open to exploring one's capacity to change from within.

Looking for the "right" therapist can be a daunting task. It might be helpful to know, I felt it was necessary to first earn the right to accompany others on their personal psychological journeys by embarking on the same psychological journey, on which, I would be inviting and accompanying my clients. In addition to my formal education, it is by continuing on my own therapeutic journey, that has afforded me a deep comfort level, degree of understanding and respect of this process, regardless of what in particular finds you seeking support. Additionally, I am a holistic practitioner, using both eastern/western approaches.

Tara Brach speaks of being a bird with two wings. Often my thoughts turn to this when describing how I work. As a mindfulness-based and contemplative psychodynamic psychologist, I seek to help others find ways to gently turn toward their suffering, cultivating the capacity to hold that which is unpleasant in one hand, and that which is pleasant in the other.
