I am fascinated by the complexity of how the human mind and spirit interact with the environment and can learn to function ever more effectively. My approach to my practice is guided by my commitment to collaboration, mutual respect, and the belief that we are all doing the best that we can do. My simplest practice goal is to offer options for seeing any situation in a way that maximizes safety, flexibility, and depth. Supporting clients in this way can contribute to movement toward deep happiness and a high quality of life. I emphasize mindfulness-based practice in all of my work as well as my personal life. I also enjoy gardening, dancing, reading, travel, the good company of friends and family, and the quiet pursuit of my own rich quality of life. I aspire to live what I advocate for others in my practice.
