Licensed Mental Health Counselor Associate
“..health and brilliance are a core part of the essential human condition...”
Compassion and unconditional acceptance are central to my approach. I understand how challenging it is to live in this confusing, alienating, and troubled society. It is so important to find support, caring, and to be recognized and valued. It is my experience and, consequently, my belief that the challenges of life are an impetus for growth and healing. We can find strength, clarity, and resolve by facing our inner turmoil with caring and support. We can move in the world with meaning and purpose when we reach into our depths where there is intrinsic health and brilliance and answers. I believe that health and brilliance are a core part of the essential human condition that lie beneath the layers of defenses we have built.
Healing and growth can take place when we can truly be present with the challenges in our life. To heal and move beyond our suffering we must undertake an honest process of self-examination. Baby steps may be required. Everyone has the key to their own healing somewhere within, for within all of us there is a knowing and a creativity that has the answers to our struggles. It is my job to be a compassionate safe support assisting you in finding the answers to your troubles and joining you on the journey to find the solutions that are within you. That journey starts with being seen, understood, and appreciated.
I started in the healing arts in one form or another 40 years ago. Presently, and presumably for the rest of my life, I am dedicated to psychotherapy. I received my Bachelors Degree In Alternative Health Studies from San Francisco State University in 1984 and then went on to study Chinese Medicine and was Nationally Certified as an Acupuncturist in 1988. I practiced as an Acupuncturist in Costa Rica for a number of years. I graduated from Naropa University in 2014 with a Master’s Degree in Transpersonal Counseling Psychology. I am now heartily being called back to the healing arts after a hiatus of 10 years to pursue Licensure as a Licensed Mental Health Counselor. Some therapeutic modalities that I use are Client Centered Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Gestalt Therapy, Mindfulness, and Transpersonal Therapy. I have some experience working with Psychedelic Medicines. I used to sponsor groups to do all night ceremony with the Native American Church and I worked with an organization in Colorado called Medicinal Mindfulness. Long ago in the late 70’s I was a yoga teacher in Denmark. I will soon be doing training in Internal Family Systems. I do individual counseling for adults.
