Mindfulness is the cultivation of paying attention to each moment, equally receiving whatever it brings.

 

Psychotherapy based upon this ancient practice of awareness is closely aligned with Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. Its power lies in addressing distorted perceptions and thinking which can lead to emotional reactivity, and at times regretful behavior.

Whether learning to tolerate unpleasant feelings, or difficult life events, mindfulness helps steady and focus the mind, alter actual brain physiology, and decrease reactivity to inner states or external circumstances. You’ll feel better equipped to respond to your life, experience less suffering.

Psychotherapy outcome studies agree that the therapist-client connection is the most important element for change. My own long-term mindfulness practice has created an inner calm and spaciousness, allowing insights to arise. This significantly increases my ability to be deeply present with you. When I’m not distracted by external events or internal processes, I’m giving 100% of my attention to understanding your experience.

I’m available to bring my decades of psychotherapeutic and spiritual practices to help transform your suffering into vitality. I’ll feel honored helping you make the changes you want.

“I was having a lot of difficulty in my marriage and suffering from depression and anxiety. After more than a year of therapy with you I was ready to give it a go on my own. Soon after my marriage and life began to blossom into what I can only describe as a very happily normal. I still utilize skills I learned from you to manage it on a daily basis.”
