About

Excessive self-judgement by our relentless inner critic appears to be nearly universal, whether we consciously recognize it or not. Few of us are immune from this in these stressful times. We need someone who can kindly bear spacious witness to this painful, unhelpful struggle. Such an unbiassed witness can mirror our observations and can guide us in the changes we want to make without our aggressive self condemnation(which only keeps us stuck). We then have the opportunity to open to what is “right” with us as a simple, helpful fact, our birthright. We can then move beyond struggling with good vs bad, free to choose change.
I hold the view that we are not fundamentally broken. What I offer is practical, simple, mutually engaged methods in honest self awareness. This is accomplished in the live moment. Rather than talking about past and future, we remain in the reality of what is happening “now,” working directly with our feelings(emotions), not rejecting or discarding anything.
None of us is immune from life's challenging struggles. Appreciating having been directed myself in practical, creative ways to meet these obstacles inspires me and brings me happiness to share my experience with you. Pain is inevitable, suffering is optional!
