I see therapy as an adventure with one's self. My strength as a therapist is to help you take personal risks in order both to discover and to become a whole person. We all need support and empathy to become who we are meant to be. Therapy should be a comfortable environment where your own wisdom is respected and built upon. The goal is to integrate your body, mind, and spirit. Adult ADD, support for psych med withdrawal, and GLBT issues are a specialty, but all are very welcome.
Currently, I am particularly interested in the meeting place of science and spirituality; the insights that Quantum Physics and ancient traditions give us about human energy and potential; the capacity for the mind to heal the body.
I have a second Master's degree in Education with a focus on learning disabilities and Attention Deficit Disorder. This gives me greater sensitivity to the pain of these issues, and additional tools for helping with them. I am the co-founder of The International Antidepressant Withdrawal Project -- www.antidepressantwithdrawal.info
