About My Clients

My clients come from a diverse set of backgrounds although I seem to attract a larger number of multicultural clients, LBGTQIA+ or individuals seeking support in their polyamorous relationships or couples opening up. I work with people experiencing anxiety and depression and want support and clarity in developing more awareness around their habitual patterns. I also work with people who struggle with racism/micro aggressions, and LBGTQIA+ issues due to white privilege and heteronormativity.

My Background and Approach

I approach is taken from training in Transpersonal and contemplative buddhist psychology at Naropa University where I received my MA. with a double major in Transpersonal Psychology and Art Therapy. The root teaching is the notion of “Brilliant Sanity”. This means that we all have within us a natural dignity and wisdom. Our basic nature is covered over like a butterfly in a cocoon, but nonetheless, it is within us and can be cultivated through mindfulness awareness, acceptance and self love. As a practitioner I am trained to recognize this sanity within myself and others even in the most confusing or disorienting states and circumstances and am able to nurture this sanity and wisdom as my clients begin to shed their layers of the their cocoon and step into their own knowing, power and intuition.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

My personal beliefs are based on my training and study of Buddhist philosophy in the Mahayana tradition. All human beings are born with basic goodness. As we grow and develop, obstacles and difficulties will begin to layer and cover our sense of basic goodness, sometimes to the point where people may forget they even have this depth of beauty, intelligence, and integrity within them. We should continually nurture and grow these innate qualities and build trust and confidence within ourselves. In doing so, one becomes much more generous and compassionate towards the struggles and difficulties they face in their everyday lives leading to more space for change to happen organically and creatively. This is not to say that people are excused for their ignorance, privilege, or oppression. Instead, it’s an invitation to see more clearly and begin to do the work, confronting and changing those things that not only hurt the individual but also hurt others and the collective human race.
