Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
'There are 10,000 stepping stones on our path of healing...Each takes us one step further into the mystery. None tells us what's next. We honor the mystery with trust in the process...Letting go of our suffering is the hardest work we will ever do, and among the most fruitful and gratifying.' Stephen Levine, Turning Toward the Mystery p.38 Much of the time our suffering is caused by the confrontation of a limited and outdated childhood belief system by the complexities and contradictions of a present day situation. It is this confrontation that confounds the mind and motivates one to take the next step into that 'mystery.' I have worked with individuals and couples and groups for 26 years, 20 of which have been in private practice. Ongoing groups are:
  • 'Who am I Now?' for the recently single
  • 'Menopause & Mid-life for Women'
  • 'Support for Straight Spouses of Gay Men.'
