Greetings, and a warm welcome to you on your journey towards growth and healing. The core of therapy overlaps with all spiritual journeys in that both aim to resolve and unknot blockages of the heart. I aim to help you identify and soften around your stuck points and be nourished by the healing energy of your own basic goodness and basic sanity-terms coined by the late Buddhist Master, Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche.
The qualities of wakeful openness and healing compassion are basic in that they are part of our fundamental nature beyond religion, race, or creed. Inspired by my own teachers, I have strived to present the message of this ancient wisdom into the field of modern psychology and in my work with clients. In addition to my extensive training in Buddhist philosophy and practice, I have had an exceptional clinical education in academic and training programs approved by the American Psychological Association.
I also specialize in Focusing, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, and Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy. I offer an effective integrated approach in my therapy and coaching that includes the physical, psychological, and spiritual dimensions of the individual.
My office is located in a peaceful residential neighborhood with easy parking in San Carlos CA, just 20 minutes south of San Francisco neighboring the Bay Area communities of San Mateo, Redwood City and Palo Alto. If you are not local, I am also available for telephone appointments for coaching sessions internationally, regardless of your location.
