Great to meet you!
I work with insight and practice. I am in the "midwife" class of therapists, meaning that I help you find your answers, not mine. We start with your insights and perceptions and together we build practices to help you live at the level of your highest awareness. I have a Buddhist background and I see self-discovery as foundational to human development. Therapy is a journey. We don't know where it will lead, but I can be your companion as you work to find and live your best self.
A bit about my approach to therapy
My work is very compatible with the vision of Viktor Frankl who described his insight and approach in his book, "Man's Search for Meaning." He distinguishes his logotherapy (from the Greek logos) from ordinary therapy in that he addresses an existential problem more than a neurotic problem. I am influenced by C.G. Jung, Socratic dialogue and Buddhism. I am open minded and warm, supporting you on your journey.
What you can expect from our first session
Self-reflection is a wonderful tool that is our birthright. Without lapsing into psychic distance or getting swept away by floods of emotion, we can peer into the center of our most perilous and precious concerns. Like standing in the eye of a storm, with perception everything quiets. It is here that we will find the mystery of who you are, and who you have taken yourself to be. I'll guide you in this process, helping you gain clarity, make the decisions and live your best life.
