I look forward to meeting each new client and getting to know him or her. I know with our busy lives we all have a number of stressors and conflicts. Sometime our usual ways of dealing with these no longer work. My goal is to help you find effective ways to deal with these stressors, so that you can complete therapy feeling happier, more in charge of your life, and can reach that place deep inside where each of us is our very best self.

I have been working as a counselor and coach since 1992. But probably what makes my approach most unique is my 12 years living in Nepal from 1975-1988 and my deep study of Buddhist psychology. I blend these deep ideas into the work I do in a secular manner. I have recently published The Misleading Mind: How We Create Our Own Problems and How Buddhist Psychology Can Help Us Solve Them. Check it out. the key to happiness is mental health. The key to mental health is a balanced and wise mind so one can, ultimately, become one's own therapist and coach. Buddhist psychology is secular, scientific. Nothing to do with religion.

Throughout our lives, we encounter a variety of natural transitions, some of which challenge our ability to cope. Death, divorce, life threatening illness, career change, marriage, becoming a parent, spiritual or existential crisis...to name a few. In an attempt to adjust, many of us experience emotional distress. I would be honored to work with you to provide support. I enjoy working with people of all ages including young children and teens. Through talk therapy, expressive arts, sand tray, and engaged play, my goal is to make each client feel prioritized, heard, cared about, valued, and nurtured throughout their process.
