Working with you toward more healthy and satisfying feelings, thoughts, behaviors and relationships.

We begin by understanding where you are and where you want to be, and then we work on getting there.  

This may involve a focus on relieving anxiety, depression, trauma, unwanted habits and addiction, ADD/ADHD, obsessive/compulsive thoughts and behaviors.

This may also involve goals around relationships, career, creative fulfillment, spiritual growth and other ways of moving toward a more meaningful and satisfying life.

 

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.
