About Me & My Practice

I work with my clients from a psychospiritual basis. From a spiritual standpoint, the most important thing about life is to learn to love ourselves and others without condition. It has been my experience that Love is the greatest healing and empowering force in the universe. So I am interested in how my clients may be blocking themselves from the in-spiration and power of Love. These blockages may show up as anger, depression, anxiety, or a set of negative beliefs about themselves, others, or life in general. Usually these formed in childhood, so quite often it is good to review with a client their early life experiences to better understand these dysfunctional patterns. So understanding is important: how did these patterns show up in my consciousness and exactly what are these patterns about ? But then it is time for action !
I look with the client for ways in which they can most effectively heal these old patterns and move into joy and creativity in their work, and loving relationships with others. What helps varies depending upon the specific personality and life experiences of each client. Because of this I am very eclectic in my approach to therapy. I want to use techniques and practices that the client is going to find most congenial and useful to their personality, lifestyle, and spiritual / religious beliefs. At some point in the therapy my work with a client can become more that of a coach as the client's clarity grows and their progress accelerates. This is very rewarding to the clients and to me as they become self realizing and self motivating.
