My particular focus and passion is on the integration of Western psychology with Eastern wisdom.  I love introducing and cultivating this Presence-based approach with therapists and healers.

I offer ongoing consultation and training groups for therapists, as well as private trainings and workshops.  Please contact me if you are interested in a training, workshop or presentation for your area or organization.

Recordings Available:

  • Healing from Presence Level 1 Training
  • Healing from Presence Level 2 Training 
  • These Healing from Presence trainings present a comprehensive and practical approach to healing from a spiritual foundation of presence. The audio and video recordings are available for $100 each. Please contact me via email to request these recordings (

I also offer retreats for the general public. These small retreats are held primarily in silence, where we deepen into presence together through silent meditation and guided mediation. As we cultivate the silence and depth of being in ourselves and in the group field, we then include some intentional sharing in dyads and in the group; this can serve to deepen and integrate the healing and opening that is available in the silence. I will give talks on themes and offer healing practices and guidance. We also include time in nature as a support for the deepening into our essential nature.
