Integrating Western & Buddhist Psychology utilizing sophisticated meditative disciplines and healing practices, cognitive and emotional trainings. Including mindfulness, meditation, inquiry, somatic meditation and practices, as well as Art Therapy and Flower Essence Therapy and energy processes.
Contemplative Psychotherapy includes our spiritual dimension, it is a radical and positive approach to psychology and to human life. It is a non-religious way to nurture our sacred connection to life and transform stress, conflict, and difficult emotions. This “science of mind” offers experiential teachings and practices to understand and release suffering to bring about happiness and fulfill the highest levels of human development.
Buddhist Psychology is one of the oldest and most well-developed systems of healing and understanding. It offers a more positive, spiritual and visionary approach to mental health. Western psychology is based upon the medical model of pathology, “there is something wrong with you that needs to be fixed”. Whereas, Buddhist Psychology is based upon the refined analysis of human consciousness. The basic aim of Buddhist Psychology is to help us become compassionately aware of our mental, emotional and behavioral patterns in order to skillfully work with them so that we may live more fully from our inherent goodness, compassion and wisdom.
Instead of just coming into therapy to discuss your problems and be listened to once a week there will be a prescribed course of daily and ongoing trainings and disciplines to practice at home. In order to embody our deepest ideals, values and insights we must have a consistent practice. These practices return us to our innate wisdom and compassion, and they direct us toward inner freedom.
In the beautiful sacred space of my home I offer individual sessions for adults.
