Integral Psychotherapy and Growth Work

Each of us is on a path of lifelong development and learning, from birth to death. We can be lit up by happiness and brought to dark places. Suffering can make us better people; it can also overwhelm us.

I believe that human beings are complex and deep, and that our unconscious body-mind is a great ally. It holds not just repressed memories, but also a deeper Self, a seat of consciousness greater than the egoic self.

Old wounds need to be healed as we move forward in life.

Couples and Family Therapy

In couples therapy, we proceed slowly enough to create space for each person to own and share their thoughts and feelings, and to be heard and understood by the other person.

In family therapy, each family member is supported to speak their mind and be understood by others. Parents affect children, and children also affect their parents. Feeling understood improves relationships.

What's my philosophy? In a word, integral. And what on earth-or in heaven-do I mean by "integral"? The dictionary meaning is fairly simple: "comprehensive, balanced, inclusive, essential for completeness." Short definition, tall order."
