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 nondual awareness as the primary agent of change, I utilize methods such as Somatic Experiencing and EMDR to assist with releasing trauma and resolving many other issues such as depression, anxiety, addictions, relationship and attachment issues.

|About the Nondual Approach|
The nondual approach includes the awakened presence of our true nature. This brings an infinite wisdom, love, clarity and compassion to the therapy and makes true transformation possible. When the therapy is sourced in infinite intelligence, healing and solutions are found in in a way that working from the ego-identity alone cannot provide. The presence of awakened, compassionate, nondual awareness is the true agent of change. When therapy takes place in the field of this presence, there is a deep safety that gently points the client beyond their conditioned patterns and into the same presence within themselves. Nondual therapy also includes any methods or techniques that may be appropriate in the moment, as well as a deep acceptance of the client in all of their humanness.
