I have been in private practice in Boulder, Colorado since 1988 and I recently moved to California. In my practice, I work with individuals starting in late adolescence through adulthood, on a variety of topics from grief, anxiety, depression, and bipolar disorder, to crisis, rape, incest, and other forms of trauma. I practice both short and long-term therapy.

Zen Academy - Sydney, Australia

          Zen Academy is a selected group of meditators                    from around the world who have come together to             learn more about Vedic meditation. In moments of             stillness one sees, as in psychoanalysis, what a big               part our mind plays in our level of self-acceptance,             self-love, and self-regulation.
