Integrating Psychology and Spirituality for Full Spectrum Healing, Transformation, and Thriving

Psychotherapy & Spiritual Guidance Services

I bring over 20 years of experience helping individuals, couples, and families. I also consult, mediate, and provide psychological services for spiritual teachers, spiritual emergences and emergencies, and provide support to individuals and spiritual communities in crises.

I am convinced that spiritual work alone does not address many of our deepest psychological knots and traumas, nor does it provide tools to address our wounds in relationship that block us from fulfilling our deepest longings, dreams, and spiritual possibilities.

People are regularly amazed to discover that psychological self-exploration is not a task to dread, but a joy to uncover.

A 12-Week Online Inquiry Group beginning Winter 2018 (with ongoing enrollment for new groups) for trailblazers who wish to proactively create psychological health and thriving in themselves and within their communities
