Individual sessions

Warm, skilled psychological work is one of the most supportive gestures we can make toward our own well-being. Sessions with me are rooted in Organic Intelligence/Somatic Experiencing and Buddhist psychology, and I hold an intention toward liberation as the basis of all the work we do together. This orientation grounds our work in a wide and ancient lineage of inner development, and invites us to use diverse methods to unfold the many layers of wounding, conditioning, and confusion that prevent us from living and knowing ourselves more fully and vibrantly.

(More info on Organic Intelligence here.)

My counseling work is primarily for Yoga and Buddhist practitioners who want to deepen their practice, unwind trauma, and bring clarity to aspects of their life that solo practice on the mat or cushion is not reaching. I also work with those who are experiencing intensified difficulty in or after periods of intensive spiritual practice. All sincere seekers of any tradition are welcome.

Rates & scheduling

I am offering sessions currently at a generous fee compared to much mainstream private therapeutic work. It’s my hope that this allows folks with many levels of resource to come and benefit.

Sessions are between 60-75 minutes (as needed), and cost $120.

Some sliding scale available in cases of need.

I see people in North Oakland, in the Temescal neighborhood. Skype/phone sessions are available.

I will take new clients again in January 2016, but am available for phone consultations through December. Call or send a note for more info: 510 984 4008 or email me at [email protected].
