"Einstein said, 'We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used to create them.' I've found applying Buddhist ideas and Jungian techniques to one's problems can speed up a motivated person's desire to fulfill more of their potential, even while living in these manic times. Findings in neuroscience overwhelmingly confirm the efficacy of the long traditions of Buddhist thought on how to train oneself to abandon old, familiar reactions to life's difficulties that have become habitual. Neuroscience makes methods to become more aware much more accessible to our western ways of thinking."

"I am a very experienced psychotherapist with over 30 years in private practice, supervision and teaching. I work with all kinds of people and groups, with all the issues and challenges inherent in being a human being. I do have a special ability to help 'outsiders' - people who don't feel at home in the mainstream and find it hard to be their true selves: introverts, highly sensitive people, artists, thinkers, people-pleasers, people with blocks to reaching their full potential. Authenticity, self-actualization, self-acceptance and connection to one's inner self are important concepts in my work."

The guidance and support of a trusted professional can be vital in regaining a sense of balance and ability to move forward in a positive way.
