What to Expect
When you contact me we'll set up a convenient time for a video or phone call. During the call, we'll chat a bit about the areas you would like help with. If you feel comfortable to continue, we'll set up a time for a session to explore the issue, and see what steps make sense to resolve it.
Setting up a consistent time for the follow-up calls (weekly, monthly, etc) is important for success. We will develop a system that is flexible to best suit your needs and schedule.
I spent my adult life pursuing a very fast paced career. Facing a chronic illness forced me on a journey of healing. Throughout the years, this path included everything from 12-steps programs, to "talk therapy", and dozens of other healing modalities.
Like many others, I found that "talk therapy" could not resolve trauma, grief, and childhood core wounds. And so I journeyed into the deeper therapies, such as pycho-drama, Jungian therapy, Primal Therapy, and a buddhist practice. This is where I hit "pay dirt" and everything about my life changed. Life became about infinite possibilities, not lack and deprivation. I began to see "ego-mind" as the real enemy, not illness and other people.
I also completed many Imago Therapy workshops with Rick Brown, Executive Director of The Institute for Relationship Therapy. My blissful marriage is a tribute to Imago therapy. Imago workshops are intensive trainings that look at childhood attachment patterns and how they play out in a marriage.
Working with trauma has always been an interest of mine. I have attended workshops with Dutch trauma expert Tineke Noordegraaf, including making several trips to Holland to learn more about her powerful technique. In this methodology, all themes and elements of a trauma are processed to completion.
Currently, I spend one or two weeks a year volunteering at a Zen monastery, where I participate in monastic life. In addition, I also participate in week-long Zen workshops during the year.
