My practice integrates traditional counseling, with alternative mind-body-spirit healing modalities of East and West.  I have been in practice for over 35 years, and am written about in three books.

In addition to traditional therapy, I offer Depth, Imaginal and Transpersonal Therapy, Shamanic practices, Dream work, recall of non-ordinary and exceptional experiences, Mindfulness therapy, Spirituality, energy medicine and much more. 

I offer a depth understanding of soul and psyche, psyche and nature, and a spiritual foundation to life. Psychology, from a depth perspective, is about personal transformation, self knowledge, and the sacredness of all life-  beyond the brain, cognitive or drug therapy.  What if pain and disharmony in your life are symptoms reflecting a deeper disconnection - being out of alignment with your deepest core of wholeness and truth.  Your issues may be personal AND spiritual.   

I help clients release limiting subconscious patterns, blocks and obstacles.  You will find happiness, peace, and discover your true inner compass.

I work with ALL issues.  Clients learn inner skills of mental balance, insight, release, and a relaxed, open mind. Clients gain inner clarity, integration and self mastery.

I have a base fee, with some sliding scale based on financial need.  Phone sessions are available - National and International.  Skype and Video possible.  Contact me for a free initial phone consultation:  413-695-4257 EST.
