"I am an LMFT specializing in the practice of mindfulness and presence. I believe people possess all they need and are inherently whole, but that life experiences, habitual thought patterns, and negative underlying beliefs cloud awareness and block connection to the deep peace and stillness within each of us. When we identify with the world of form-the form of thought, emotion, or material items-we suffer, because all forms are impermanent and then our sense of identity feels constantly threatened. My desire is to facilitate felt experiences of peace, so people are able to accept any moment with deep compassion and understanding."
