I find it effective to combine behavioral solutions with depth work. Since the unconscious ripples into all aspects of life, I have found that relational therapy addressing unconscious motives can help with most psychological difficulties. In addition to working with individuals, couples & families, I am adjunct faculty at the California Institute of Integral Studies where I teach in the Masters in Counseling Psychology Department and Psychological Services Clinic.
I have a background in long term Tibetan meditation, and have spent more than a year in silent retreat. I have taught workshops on psychology, spirituality & yoga globally and bring a multicultural perspective to the work. I have specialized training in Jungian psychoanalytic therapy from the C. G. Jung Institute of San Francisco.
Some areas of focus include anxiety and depression, trauma, relationship issues, addiction and co-dependence, sexual therapy, etc., as well as dream analysis. Integrating the role of body, mind and spirit, I am committed to a holistic approach to well being.
