Integrative Psychotherapy

My work is “Integrative” in that it weaves together a wide variety of psychological theories and practices from different schools of thought, disciplines, and bodies of research.  This includes Contemporary Psychoanalytic / Psychodynamic theory, Jungian Psychology, Vedic Psychology, Somatic Experiencing Principles, Neuroscience, Neurobiology, Attachment Theory, and Quantum Field Theory. This is a depth oriented approach based on classical principles of relational psychotherapy,  contemporary evidence based science, and the ancient teachings on the nature of the self from the Indian Vedic scriptures known as the Upanisads.

Planetary Upshift New Moon Meditations

This in-person and live streaming event brings together the alchemy of our beautiful human hearts coming together to plant our seeds of creation, enhanced by the plant medicine of cacao in a sacred brew, and then we take a deep dive within the inner sanctum of our hearts in a meditative guided journey riding on the waves of the love vibration. Love is our true nature, and all it takes is a simple act of placing our attention on that which we already ARE, and allowing the love-light vibrations to flow like a fountain through our hearts. The intention of flowing our love in this gathering is for our own personal healing, and for planetary healing and upshifting into the high frequencies of coherence and unity.
