Trauma from spiritual or self-help groups
Experiencing exploitation or abuse by religious, spiritual figures, psychedelic facilitators or human potential development groups can result in psychological wounding that impacts existential beliefs, values and views of relationships.
My trauma-informed approach provides safety and resources to achieve post-traumatic growth by processing the wounds, and reclaiming, reframing, repairing and reorienting toward a meaningful future.
Relationship Estrangement and Loss
The strain or even loss of important relationships impacts not only our health, but has detrimental effects on brain aging.
I help you understand the neurobiology of relationship attachment, self-regulation and co-regulation, and to gain confidence establishing new social interchanges, reconnect to others and to meaningful activities.
Psychointegrating Rapid Changes
Integrating rapid transformative events such as impacts from COVID-19, a cascade of life events or mystical experiences into everyday life requires a new cognitive anti-fragility.
I support you in making sense of and relink to the world during such times when your worldviews are expanded and lead to transformation of personality, of core principles or the way you perceive and understand self and reality.

I Have Experience With…
Applied Positive Psychology
Applied Positive Psychology is the practical application of the Science of Happiness and Wellbeing.
Ecotherapy or nature therapy is non-competitive re-connection to the non-human world, and feeling better for it. The therapist in ecotherapy is nature herself.
Expressive Arts as Therapy
Re-connect with your creative self through strengths-based expressive therapeutic arts practices and philosophy as therapy. Instead of focusing on skills or techniques, the process focuses on inner feelings, perceptions and imagination while philosophy stimulates cognitive development, communication and articulation.
Web 3.0 and Culture
The future of the digital value exchange incorporates decentralized culture, meme economy and anti-fragile mindset. You also need to learn how to distinguish hype from value and cultivate digital intelligence including understanding behavioral algorithms and business models.
A new psychology that generates a mindset for restoring and creating capacity for life, human, community and natural systems to recover and maintain health.
My Approach & Philosophy
What you can expect when you work with me
My own life and work experience informs my philosophy of meeting people where they are, recommending pragmatic interventions, non-judgemental, patience in listening deeply, curiosity and supporting my clients in discovering the hidden gems of the good and bad about themselves and their lives.
I am known for the art of the conversation and being able to hold a space for difficult and emotional experiences (in person or virtual) and find that visual and creative expression enables non-verbal communication as well as understanding and insights.
Clients value my honesty and authenticity. I am often asked to formally mediate in complex workplace conflicts and relationships.
How we work together
We start with a free, virtual introduction call of 15 minutes, exploring your needs, agree on approach, and our commitment to the process should we think it would be a good fit.
Typically we will contract for 3 weekly, one hour sessions, starting with a diagnostic, aspirations and goal setting. At the end of the third session, we re-evaluate and determine if you require more support.
All my clients receive 6 months free access to my nature therapy program.
You have the option to join my online community for peer support where you will also find additional curated content for your journey.
My preference for virtual sessions is Doxy, HIPAA compliant telemedicine software.
I offer a consulting package of three hours for USD $ 300 (for the package as a whole).
For individual consultations my hourly rate is USD $150.
