I am an licensed marriage and family therapist specializing in the practice of mindfulness and presence. I believe people possess all they need and are inherently whole, but that life experiences, habitual thought patterns, and negative underlying beliefs cloud awareness and block connection to the deep peace and stillness within each of us. When we identify with the world of form-the form of thought, emotion, or material items-we suffer, because all forms are impermanent and then our sense of identity feels constantly threatened. My desire is to facilitate felt experiences of peace, so people are able to accept any moment with deep compassion and understanding.
I utilize the teachings of Eckhart Tolle, Thich Nhat Hanh, and other spiritual masters to provide a space of conscious awareness and support people in utilizing the power of the now. I prefer modalities of meditation, art, tarot, play, and energy work as the vehicles to enhance mindfulness & presence. Within this space, insight arises, and healing blossoms.
The use of Reiki is growing as Western medicine seeks ways to provide care in a holistic manner. Reiki is currently being offered not only for management of physical pain but emotional pain as well. Reiki is used in the treatment of anxiety, depression, trauma, stress and memory loss, as well as in palliative and oncological care.
