I view psychotherapeutic work not only as a means to symptom reduction, but as an evolving process to help people live more personally meaningful lives. I work with adults dealing with a wide range of difficulties, and I have experience working with people that have co-occurring medical issues including chronic pain and HIV/AIDS. I offer an integrative approach based on your needs and interests, which may include talk therapy, medication management, Yoga breathing techniques, meditation, attention to the physical body, spiritual principles, and insights from neuroscience.
I am a long-time student of both Yoga and Tibetan Buddhism, and I find that the philosophies and practices from these traditions are beneficial in aiding Western approaches to psychology and psychiatry. I am credentialed to teach yoga and meditation, and I am also certified in contemplative psychotherapy.
My approach is collaborative and comprehensive, and I bring a compassionate, non-judgemental sensitivity to my work. I will meet you where you are and together, we can create a unique treatment approach to help you reach your goals of healing and self-development.
