Many of the principles that guide my work as a therapist grow out of my longstanding meditation practice. I strive to bring open-mindedness, compassion, and insight to my relationship with each client, and I work to help the client develop an attitude of acceptance both of circumstances and of him/herself. While a lot of emotional pain arises out of the past events or current situations that are beyond our control, I’ve found that we frequently compound the pain by blaming ourselves for reacting the way we have, or for not being what we believe we should be.

In many cases, change grows out of understanding the factors that have made us who we are, which can lead to wholehearted self-acceptance. A relationship with an empathic therapist supports this process.

When appropriate to a particular client’s therapy, I may teach meditation skills as tools for decreasing emotional pain and building acceptance. I work with individuals and also run Applied Meditation workshops, training participants in a variety of meditation techniques which can help in dealing with specific kinds of distress.
