Q&A

What I love most about my work is the lively, intimate, and gratifying conversations that lead to meaningful change in people's lives. It never ceases to amaze me how, even in the most dire circumstances, the human spirit seeks forward momentum.

I was initially inspired by the work of many people in what was called at the time the Human Potential Movement, largely as it emerged at Esalen Institute in California. At that time, there were many forms of therapy and healing that were developed as alternatives to traditional psychodynamic psychotherapy, including Gestalt, Bioenergetics, Psychodrama, Body Movement, and the work of people like Charlotte Selver, Gregory Bateson, Abraham Maslow, Alan Watts, and Aldous Huxley. From these beginnings, my training and education lead to my current practice.

I provide a rich experiential background and a safe space within which to explore new possibilities for you. Let's talk about what I can do to help.
