Psychological and spiritual development are inextricably intertwined, and they equally continue throughout life. Both paths lead to reduced suffering and help people grow in consciousness. As a psychotherapist and spiritual seeker, I work with individuals engaged in personal and spiritual work.
Experience the transformational power of integrating a mindfulness practice into your therapeutic work. While we address healing the emotional wounds of the past, we will also explore the profound existential questions related to the meaning of life that can arise while doing deep work.
The principles that I have learned and practice every day are deeply steeped into my work with my clients:
- Expand your moment-to-moment awareness of your experience without judgment
- Reduce stress
- Increase your capacity to feel calm, clear-minded and to concentrate
- Decrease obsessive thinking and the associated negative emotions
- Learn tools to be less reactive and remain emotionally regulated
- Develop your capacity to feel accepting and loving no matter what is happening in your external circumstances
- Understand more deeply the impermanence of all things, including your one precious life.
- Decrease your fear of death and learn to embrace the inevitable end as one of your greatest teachers.
This being human is a guest house.
Every morning a new arrival.
A joy, a depression, a meanness,
some momentary awareness comes
As an unexpected visitor.
Welcome and entertain them all!
Even if they're a crowd of sorrows,
who violently sweep your house
empty of its furniture,
still treat each guest honorably.
He may be clearing you out
for some new delight.
The dark thought, the shame, the malice,
meet them at the door laughing,
and invite them in.
Be grateful for whoever comes,
because each has been sent
as a guide from beyond.
