I generally have a full practice and a long waiting list for regular weekly or every other week appointments, however, I do occasionally have cancellations for irregular or one-off online sessions. My primary focus these days is nondual spiritual mentoring - working with people who are deeply engaged in the awakening process and who want refined guidance to strengthen the recognition of true nature and to see through various levels of conditioning. I studied for many years with the European sage Jean Klein and with Adyashanti. If you'd like to work with me, I would suggest that you first read both "In Touch: How to Tune in to the Inner Guidance of Your Body and Trust Yourself" (Sounds True, 2015) and "The Deep Heart: Our Portal to Presence" (Sounds True, Nov. 2019). Thanks!
Ellen’s deepest intuition was confirmed when she met her teacher, Francis Lucille. In his presence, she recognised the eternal, limitless and universal nature of our shared reality. Over many years, her understanding deepened to touch all levels of experience. The process of aligning and stabilizing all aspects of her life to this understanding has continued to unfold since then.
As a child Ellen loved to move and dance. She knew without words the joy and limitless transparency that the body dissolved into when it was free and alive.
As an adolescent and young adult, she acutely felt and enacted suffering through her body.
Thus, the experience that we call the body has always been central to all of Ellen’s experiences, both in the ignoring and in the recognition of our true nature.
Today, Ellen offers meetings and retreats in The Awakening Body, sharing a direct exploration of reality sourced in the tradition of Kashmir Shivaism and self-inqui…
You love the nondual teaching, and maybe you’ve had a taste of awakening to your true nature. Yet you still get caught in sticky patterns. You struggle in your relationships. You’re still dealing with your past or resenting your childhood. You’re self-critical and feel anxious or depressed.
My expertise is in helping you unravel these patterns so you can live in the peace and happiness that you just know to be true. In our work together, we respect the humanity of your stories, and we go beyond them to relax into the openness beyond all stories that is undisturbed by any problem or emotion.
You’ll learn to turn inward toward what you’re experiencing in the moment to be curious about exactly where your attention is going that’s causing this personal suffering. You’ll identify the hidden beliefs that keep you feeling separate and untangle painful emotions.
You’ll slow things down so you can take a breath and be fully present with whatever is appearing in t…

I see our life challenges as doorways to awakening and greater freedom. They invite us to go deeper and expand our understanding of our self and life. It is only from a larger vantage point, that it is possible to fully release old beliefs and conditioned patterns that cause psychological suffering. Awakening to our true nondual nature provides the most direct and lasting way to be free from the issues that limit our potential and happiness. A direct experience of this is immediately available and accessible at all times. I am interested in facilitating awakening and transformation rather than temporary remedies. This is possible for all those who are ready to move beyond the conditioned mind structure into the freedom of our essential nature.
I work holistically with the body, mind and spirit while allowing a deeper wisdom to guide me to what works best in each moment. My work is experiential and addresses issues at their root. In addition to offering the presence of…

“Not everything can be changed when it is faced. And yet nothing can be changed until it is faced.”
- James BaldwinEnlighten what? In a way, my journey of embodiment started with Facebook. One click led to another, and all of a sudden, I discovered a word I had never come across: “enlightenment.” In spiritual and nondual Facebook groups, I met people who claimed to be enlightened, talking about “oneness” and “no self.” I could relate to their descriptions, as I too had had many awakenings (later what I’d call “head awakenings”), leaving me with experiences of clarity and expanded perspectives. It sounded good and all, this enlightenment, but it was confusing. The people in these groups were often competitive, mean-hearted, and fragmented from life itself. Some of them talked about love, light, and positivity, and yet t…
Move into alignment with your True Nature
"Nondual Therapy is emerging to address the collective need to unwind conditioning and to move into increasing degrees of alignment with our True Nature."
“Nondual Therapy is not about achieving a status, or becoming a new, improved person. Rather, it’s about undoing the web of personality to allow the flow of pure Nondual Qualities...”
“Rather than trying to fix the personality, it sees individuality as a precious manifestation of Source in motion – a flow of unique moments of experience that can be celebrated as part of the evolutionary dance of the whole."
- Georgi Y. Johnson
Untangle your personal story
"This fresh way of being is not just for enlightened sages or monks living on mountaintops. The nondual nature of reality is the essence of all present-moment experience, which means it is practical, real, and alive in you right now...
You feel hurt, rejected, disappointed, or ignored, and since these everyday experiences stick to you like glue, they need to be addressed... In my work as a therapist, I’ve seen many people cling to the belief that they are damaged and broken, playing it out in their daily lives with painful results...
The good news is that your personal story of unworthiness and even self-hate can be untangled, because it’s built on confused thinking and it’s not the essence of who you are.”
- Gail Brenner
Free of all pressure to change or be the same
"In the nondual approach to therapy, therapists facilitate the natural release of fixed beliefs and frozen emotions by creating a space that is free of all pressure to change or be the same. They offer people an open and nonjudgmental space that lets things be, just as they are.
We could say that therapists offer a clearing for a client’s suffering. From this experience of pure spaciousness therapists can authentically question the structure, the texture, the nature of someone’s suffering in a way that begins to dissolve a contracted and self-serving interpretation of the present moment."
- Peter Fenner
Heal by reconnecting to wholeness
"More and more of us are experiencing self as multiplicity, self with porous boundaries, self beyond definition… Many of us are willing to investigate our inner worlds, to let go of who we thought we were and learn to be simply as we are. Through inner inquiry and spiritual breakdown, we get to know ourselves as we are for the first time since childhood. We return to who we were before our stories and wounds. It’s not so much that we discover anything new about ourselves; it’s more that we remember who we have always been, as interconnected beings in presence. We heal by reconnecting to the wholeness that has always been."
- Jen Peer Rich
(From the foreword to ‘The Dark Night of the Soul’ by Fiona Robertson)
Bring the patterns of suffering into consciousness
"The hard truth is that spiritual realizations often do not heal our deep wounding… Often what is needed here is psychological work that allows us to bring the underlying psychodynamics that maintain these patterns into consciousness."
- John Welwood
Notice and welcome energies in the body
"We store memories in our body as sensations or feelings velcroed to thoughts (words and images). In Mindfulness Inquiry, we notice the energy in our body and welcome it. We attend to the sensations. We invite it to reveal thoughts and memories associated with it...
We look from awareness and see what arises. We become familiar with the transitory nature of our stored material and beliefs. We intimately witness the integrated mindbody experience of thoughts and energy. We know what is flowing through in the space of awareness and we begin to know the space itself."
- Lynn Fraser
Limiting beliefs, feelings and patterns unwind
"We welcome beliefs, feelings and patterns that dominate your everyday life and seem to confirm that you are a limited individual… Gently, mistaken beliefs at the level of the mind and habitual contractions at the level of the body are exposed, explored and begin to unwind naturally."
- Ellen Emmet
Clarification of mind
"The Supreme State is universal, here and now; everybody already shares in it… Who does not like to be, or does not know his own existence? But we take no advantage of this joy of being conscious, we do not go into it and purify it of all that is foreign to it. This work of mental self-purification, the cleansing of the psyche, is essential… It is useless to fight the sense of being a limited and separate person unless the roots of it are laid bare… Clarification of the mind is Yoga."
- Nisargadatta Maharaj
A sanctuary to explore your direct experience
"…psychotherapists are in a unique position in modern society to offer a sanctuary for individuals to sort out their lives and more intimately explore their direct experience. Further, people may be more at ease working individually with a therapist who has a nondual orientation than with joining a spiritual organization or community that has its own specialized rules, roles, and rituals."
- John J. Prendergast
There are as many nondual therapies as there are nondual therapists
"Nondual therapy is not a special method, approach, or set of techniques, and certainly not a particular viewpoint. There are as many nondual therapies as there are nondual therapists. It’s actually an interaction between two people that occurs in the absence of a viewpoint, agenda, or interpretive lens; if it’s truly nondual, it unfolds in a shared, resonant space or field in which the apparent separation between client and therapist has dissolved—or, more accurately, doesn’t apply."
- Stephan Bodian
A repertoire of techniques to assist the therapeutic process
"Therapists with a nondual perspective may have access to a repertoire of techniques... These techniques may arise spontaneously in the moment in a way that is naturally appropriate for the client, greatly assisting the therapeutic process."
- Sheila Krystal
A full-spectrum path of spirituality and healing
"These days, it’s clear that a full-spectrum path of spirituality and healing must address multiple dimensions of what it means to be an open, awake, and compassionate human being. Meditation, emotional healing, psychological work, relational maturity, and being grounded in the body are all required to live lives of freedom, connectedness, and presence...
...explore the ground of a loving, embodied, nondual presence – the place where spirituality and therapy meet, the Home we never leave."
- Matt Licata
