HomeMost psychology and spirituality is about empowering a process, not a person. It’s about a person still needing a process to be okay. It’s not about owning the fundamental LOVE and TRUTH that you are.

Most psychologists don’t focus on the core of their clients, they focus on pathology….e.g. ‘what is wrong with you.’ While you’re coming to me looking for someone to help you clear the patterns that make you feel ‘there’s something wrong with me,’ I will be showing you that these patterns aren’t the REAL YOU, and can be dissolved.

Even traditional enlightenment spirituality focuses on what’s wrong with you and on “the magical life you’ll have if only you’ll live according to THIS teaching.” It doesn’t focus on what you already are: love and awareness, the eternal and infinite, with: mental, physical, emotional and spiritual parts. It also doesn’t easily clarify the obscuring patterns that keep you from experiencing the depth of you.

I offer the skills of a psychologist AND an enlightenment teacher to you, and empower you with a focus on love and truth. I will help you with all that gets in the way of you having a happy and fulfilling life

I find that the best way to help now, is simply to mirror you, so you can recognize what you ALREADY ARE: love, peace, truth, awareness, infinite, eternal, and part of Nature. I also mirror what I see of your physical, mental, emotional and spiritual self that you’re demonstrating in my office. Some people miss their own lived experience and just need a little help to feel themselves again.

The only thing in the way of you living from the CORE of you is the corrosive patterning of the confusing culture we live in. A culture that is often divorced from Nature and heading more deeply into substituting the virtual for the real. Your parents and teachers grew up in their own version of this culture and consciously or unconsciously taught you to conform to or rebel against it. Now we can peel away the layers of confused and obstructive patterning and get to the heart of who you are. 

I offer individual work: mirroring and uncovering your positive core of Love and Awareness, helping you to reconnect with Nature, and helping you to see and dissolve the destructive patterns that enslave you and distract you from who you are. I work in my office for people who live nearby, and on video for those around the world. You’ll learn to dream a totally new life into reality through a series of in-person 1:1 dialogs and homework assignments. I emphasize meditation, mindfulness/being present, and challenging the truthfulness of your thoughts, to bring you into a spontaneous life in each new moment.

Your transformation requires your commitment to:

  • dissolve patterns and think freely for yourself,
  • dis-identify from a fixed ‘story of yourself,’
  • let your creativity move you,
  • develop enough courage to follow your own love, awareness, and will and
  • schedule a REGULAR pattern of sessions with me. Therapy sessions must be weekly or bi-weekly. Mentoring sessions can be weekly, bi-weekly or monthly. Without this commitment of your time, put aside for your own healing and development, nothing will happen.

For fees, I accept clients without insurance on a sliding scale from $40 to $200 per hour-long session, based on your income. Your annual income, divided by 1,000 is your session fee! However, the lowest fee is $40. I do accept some major insurance plans for therapy: Aetna (and subsidiaries Meritain and Trustmark; United Healthcare (and subsidiaries All Savers, Optum, and United Behavioral Health); in this case the fee is your usual copay.

Come have a cup of tea and an initial conversation to see how you can see yourself clearly as the love and truth you are and transform every area of your life, in light of that recognition. Email me at [email protected] to arrange a visit.
