Patient Care Philosophy

It gives me great pleasure to help people see that beyond even their most severe agitation, confusion, helplessness, or despair they are innately healthy.  It is our innate health which enables us to recognize the agitation or unhappiness and to seek peace and happiness.  Also, no matter how confused, ill or lost we get, we all have moments of clarity.  That, too, is evidence of our innate health.

Our suffering comes from nothing more than losing sight of our true nature, (which is always obvious and immediately apparent, but gets overlooked in the same way we overlook the screen when we get caught up in the images on it).  I am here to help you see clearly, experientially, not intellectually, the innate health and well-being that shines at the heart of even the greatest distress.

Scope of Care

Outpatient individual, couples, family, and group mental health services for the full range of emotional and psychological problems related to human suffering.
