About

My first goal when working with a client is to create a space of absolute safety, a space where people feel at ease to share the fullness of their suffering, to share their hopes and their dreams. I use a whole-person approach and learn not just about a person’s pain but also about their strengths and their vision for a better future. Together, my clients and I create a healing field that allows their deepest knowledge to flower. We transform confusion into clarity and habitual patterns into fresh action arising out of wisdom.
I heal by combining cutting-edge science with perennial truth. In my approach, I integrate Western and Eastern psychology, philosophy, the world’s great spiritual traditions and the latest advances in neuroscience. My clients and I descend into the depths of their pain and emerge with the light of insight.
Starting this path can be scary. You may be close to giving up. Maybe you’re overwhelmed and don’t know where to begin. Together, you and I will create a map that gets you to safety, peace, happiness and meaning.
