No matter how fortunate you may be, still human life is difficult. Despite your best efforts, at times life's stresses can be too much: you may be overwhelmed. Hurt, fear, guilt, anger, shame, grief: feeling bad can alert you to where the trouble lies, or add to your emotional burdens. Confusion, isolation, loneliness, restlessness, worry, despair, or addictive attempts to find relief - all of these painful states are attempts to ward off problems or fix what's wrong, but they can also make things worse.
Finding a way to get free from dysfunctional reactions, and discovering appropriate responses to life's challenges are essential to living well and gracefully. Fortunately, in spite of whatever cultural or familial messages you may have been given to the contrary, you don't have to do this alone.
I have training in psychoanalytic and cognitive-behavioral treatment, including dialectical therapy, that builds on a foundation of (primarily Soto Zen) Buddhist thought, meditation and mindfulness practice of over 40 years. What these approaches have in common is confidence that a rational response to the problem of suffering is available and can be relied on.

Adult Relational Therapy Group

Group work involves learning how you are affected by experiences with others, and communicating what you know to other members of the group. Working in this way inevitably leads to growth, a richer sense of self, greater interpersonal freedom and effectiveness.
