"Compassion and intuition characterize my style and I consider truth, the present moment, and the body as rich sources of information. In the context of a supportive and collaborative relationship, I help you examine your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. Results of this process may include increased awareness, understanding, peacefulness and contentment, confidence, resourcefulness, and vitality. Nondual awareness infuses my work with clients, a perspective in which the split between self and other is recognized as a mental construct and possibilities for spaciousness and clarity unfold."

"My approach to psychotherapy is holistic. I not only treat the "tip of the iceberg" problems, but also address the deeper, "bottom of the ocean," issues. I treat the whole person and honor the mind-body-spirit connections, taking into account the client's cultural, religious and ethnic background, ancestry, race and immigration history. I recognize the complexity of each person's history and circumstances and employ a wide variety of techniques to guide my clients in their self-discovery."

"Taking the first step to get in and talk to a therapist about concerns that are holding you back or creating challenges is not easy. But it can really make a difference. The issues or concerns you have may be preventing you from moving forward or from having fulfilling relationships, career or a satisfying life. Whether it's communication problems, anger, anxiety, or depression, you can make changes. Using verbal and non-verbal therapeutic techniques, in a safe, accepting environment, you can find new ways to face your concerns, and discover your strengths and resources to flourish and grow."
