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.

Psychotherapy is an art and science providing individuals with an opportunity to heal and grow. In a confidential and caring environment I support individuals to face painful aspects of their lives, access their inner resources, and begin taking new and healthy steps into their futures. It is natural and necessary to grow and change throughout life. Individuals are called by life circumstances, relationships with others, or by an internal restlessness to relinquish old ways and to develop new abilities. In our work together, clients and I identify steps toward creating the future they want to live.
