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


(Excerpted from Yoga & Psyche: Integrating the Paths of Yoga and Psychology for Healing, Transformation, and Joy,
by Sounds True. Book and Audiobook available through Amazon.)

Fellow Travelers on the Path,
In this time of collective, environmental, and global trauma, which inevitably also unearths our own individual traumas and wounds, I want to offer this Free audio and PDF download of The Yoga & Psyche Method Toolbox, which includes the very best practices I have found for processing trauma safely in the body, and regulating and and soothing our nervous systems. Drawing from depth psychology, Somatic Experiencing™, trauma healing methods, yoga and meditative practices, and neuroscience, these practices can be done solo, in pairs, or as a support to psychotherapy, yoga, and healing sessions. Read more about the practices in the PDF and/or explore them right here.

I am with you in alliance, fortitude, and embodied love,

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.

Consultation Services

The focus of my current services as a Consultant is on project-based efforts that are aimed at solutions to global issues. In this acute time of coronavirus, I am adding additional consultation time to groups, institutions, and individuals who need support in terms of building inner and outer resources, learning to process trauma in their own bodies and teaching trauma healing skills to others, and to transition their healing offerings to online platforms. I am particularly interested in philanthropic pursuits where my unique skillsets can be useful. All my services are available through video platforms.

I bring over 20 years of research, teaching, and the publication of nine books, that are translated into over a dozen languages on topics related to intersection of psychology, spirituality, yoga, world religions, and contemporary spiritual traditions. My clinical work as a psychotherapist included consulting, mediating, and providing psychological services to spiritual and religious teachers/leaders, communities, and emergencies, as well as creating preventative psychological health programs for spiritual and religious groups. I have mediated, advised, and supported healing in many large spiritual scandals. Specializing in trauma and somatics (body-centered) psychology, I supported individuals, couples, and families, and initiated school yoga programs for high-risk youth.

Although my Psychotherapy and Spiritual Guidance are very full, and I am currently offering only short-term, solution-focused work, I am mentoring and supervising a group of talented psychotherapists, psychiatrists, coaches, yoga therapists, clergy, and peer counselors to provide the specific types of services I have offered over many years, and have a strong referral base to offer you—several who are willing to work at a significant sliding scale in order to support others during the coronavirus time. To learn more about the Psychological Services and Spiritual Guidance I have offered and are mentoring others in, see my Spiritual Guidance, Somatics (Body-Centered) and Trauma, and Individual/Couples specializations.

I am also offering a new 9-Month Online Global Mentorship Program beginning September, 2020, for which admission is currently open. More information here.
