Contemplative Psychotherapy for Individuals, Couples and Families

860 680 8560

My approach to therapy is a dynamic blend of all that has profoundly influenced me: the science of Family Systems, my 25 years study and practice in Buddhist psychology and Non-Dual philosophy, teaching Kundalini Yoga, extensive training in Seirenkai Martial Arts, and Primal Health coaching. Fostering a fulfilling marriage of 24 years and mothering two teenagers has been deeply joyful and rich with personal growth, lending great insight into human nature.

My passion is in helping my clients develop conscious partnerships, mindful parenting, heal from grief and live free of anxiety and depression. My work is a psychotherapeutic approach integrating neuroscience, trauma research, meditative practices and relational awareness for healing and happiness.

My Deaf Culture competence and fluency in American Sign Language allows me to welcome the Deaf and Hard of Hearing communities.

The greatest priority in my work is the connection we cultivate together. It is essential to me that you experience an empowering relationship of unconditional acceptance and safety and my belief in your inherent wholeness.
