Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
As a transpersonal psychotherapist, I employ an eclectic approach that addresses a variety of issues that the client brings to therapy. I also draw on the Non-Dual teachings of Zen and Advaita Vedanta to inform my therapy from a broader perspective. The objective of therapy, from a Non-Dual perspective, is to assist the client in cultivating moment-to-moment awareness of Life here and now, whatever experience may arise. This implies a deeply compassionate witnessing presence that accepts this moment just as it is, completely. The result of this process is a realignment of the client's identification of self from that of a problem-besieged personality to the Transpersonal Self. The effect of this realignment is to make available to the client a deep source of wisdom and healing. This approach, despite its spiritual implications, has very down-to-earth, practical results for the client. For a more detailed discussion of my therapeutic approach, please log onto my website at www.transpersonaltherapy.net.
