Mindfulness-Informed Psychotherapy Meditation Teaching and Coaching

Hello and welcome! Here you can learn more about my psychotherapy practice and mindfulness teaching and coaching.

    Mindfulness-Informed Psychotherapy

    I am a licensed psychotherapist and a graduate of the Buddhist Psychology Training Program at Spirit Rock. As a therapist, I blend insights and tools from the modern field of psychology with ancient wisdom teachings. I have a particular interest in applying evidence-based mindfulness approaches to therapy. My practice is guided by my respect for values of kindness, compassion, and friendly, non-judgmental awareness and insight.

    “The curious paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am, then I can change.”–Carl Rogers

    Meditation Teaching and Coaching

    I am authorized as a teacher of mindfulness meditation by Jack Kornfield and Tara Brach through the Mindfulness Meditation Teacher Certification Program. I offer daylong retreats, multi-session classes in mindfulness, and 1:1 meditation coaching.

    My Approach

    As a therapist I use a mindfulness-based approach and incorporate resources from Buddhist teachings and other wisdom traditions.
    As a meditation teacher and coach I meet people “where they are at,” whether to learn the basics of mindfulness meditation, deepen practice, or explore particular topics or themes to enhance personal development.
