Life and living only exist in the present moment. Our untrained mind often causes us suffering when it dwells on past experiences, or future fears, clouding this moment where living actually occures. Depression, anxiety, our beliefs about our selves and others, all stem from these unnecessary thoughts and their related emotions. Our mind must come to realize that it is the cause of its own unhappiness. Then whatever we experience in life is no longer overwhelming. I have an appreciation and grounding in western oriented psychodynamics enriched with an eastern psychological and Spiritual perspective. Please visit my website: kennethandert.com

I am supportively engaged and interactive with my clients and use an eclectic approach including mindfulness, past recollections, emotions, physical awarenesses,Spiritual beliefs, and present moment occurances to encourage change and healing. Clients are often surprised that therapy can be an enjoyable experience where humor accompanies the process of transformation.

I have had an active Spiritual and mindfulness practice for many years. These experiences, in conjunction with a well grounded clinical knowledge base, and my own inner work, have enriched my understanding of the nature of mind, related emotions, and their relationship to life and life experiences.
