I offer three gateways into the practice of loving kindness for adults: couples therapy, holistic psychotherapy and Hatha yoga.
I have learned from 5 to 105 year old clients in substance abuse treatment centers, hospitals, schools and universities, non-profit organizations, juvenile justice agencies, retirement communities, research institutes, retreat centers, dance and yoga studios. The people I have served and the integrity of the staff in each setting have been my greatest teachers.
The therapeutic modalities that inspire me the most have this truth in common: although we have been wounded in relationship, we grow through continuing to open to loving connections that reflect our worth, freedom, dignity and divinity. To cultivate love, we are called to develop skills in the art of being present and available to witness whatever is arising. We all face obstacles in holding steady with this quality of attention. The greater the obstacles, the greater the suffering and this suffering can be the catalyst to awakening to our wholeness.
Just like you, I am continually studying, learning and growing, remaining steadfast in my devotion to this evolutionary process with my own family, teachers, community and connection with the sacred.
I would be honored to offer my gifts in service to your journey, and look forward to celebrating with you the never ending invitation to deepen our capacity to love.
