Habitual patterns of thoughts, feelings and behaviors can keep you stuck.
When you become aware of these patterns, it becomes possible to choose a new way that better fits your goals for yourself, and your best health.
I provide the safe space and support that allows you to make progress by accessing your own natural clarity and warmth of heart and mind.
In this way, what you learn in session becomes integrated in your life, and the tangles of the past can be dissolved.
Three streams of experience contribute to my approach:
- As a neuroscientist studying emotion & learning, I have a practical understanding of our inborn capacities for emotional, physical and social health, and how this understanding can be applied in our work together.
- As a mindfulness & meditation practitioner and teacher with over 30 years of experience, I can use these methods flexibly and carefully to help disrupt habitual patterns, orient to a fresh experience of the present moment, and cultivate natural warmth and clarity of mind.
- As a psychotherapist, I combine all this experience with the latest in cognitive, behavioral, psychodynamic, body-centered and relational methods, bringing an integrative approach to treatment.
