Mindfulness-Based Psychotherapy for Individuals & Families
Anxiety, Depression, Eating Disorders, Relationships, Career
As a mindfulness-based therapist, I offer a warm and welcoming space for you to explore yourself and your life experience.
This is the basis for discovering your own capacity to make meaningful change and growth in your life.

My practice integrates the gentle openness of Eastern wisdom with the illuminating methods of Western psychology.

Mindfulness helps cultivate a compassionate presence of mind and body and supports the more active process of Self-inquiry.

Self-inquiry practices are drawn from the fields of Depth Psychology, Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Voice Dialogue, Meditative Inquiry, The Work of Byron Katie and somatic therapy methods such as EMDR and Hakomi.

Self-inquiry reveals and releases those beliefs and feelings that are inhibiting a fuller expression of your potential and aspirations.

With greater clarity comes greater capacity for change.

Our meeting time will provide you with a spacious and dynamic atmosphere for self-discovery and life transformation.

I am a California licensed Psychologist with over 15 years of clinical experience providing Individual, Group, Couples and Family Therapy.
I work with clients of all ages including adolecents and children.
I provide counseling and therapy for a range of presenting concerns in a comfortable, supportive and personalized atmosphere to help you attain the life changes and personal growth you are seeking.

Spiritual Unfolding
I grew up in New York City and graduated from the State University of New York at Albany with a PhD in Counseling Psychology. I am a licensed Psychologist in both New York and California.
I have practiced psychotherapy for over 15 years in mental health clinics, hospital settings, university counseling centers and my own private practice in both New York and California.

My undergraduate and graduate education focused on the Eastern and Western philosophical underpinnings of contemporary psychology.
Through that I discovered the cognitive, emotional, physical and spiritual benefits of a regular meditation and yoga practice which I continue with today.
Consequently I value an integral approach to therapy that supports deep and lasting change.

I continue to expand my training in various methods and theoretical approaches that I find helpful in my practice.

Foremost, I view each person as inherently whole and capable of finding their own way towards life change and inner well being.
I regard myself as a guide in this process supporting each person to discover what is truly healing and vitalizing for themselves and their lives.
