Private Sessions

Receive individualized attention 

to your particular questions 

and challenges, along with practices 

to support your progress.

Together, we will listen into the heart of infinite stillness and open to the ever-present source of aliveness which moves us each uniquely and in synchronous relationship with all. From here we know what is ours and our lives move with ease.

One on One Support for Your Journey

When the constructs of the mind are seen through, we experience our whole self as clear vast awareness entering a body as spirit and animating life in concrete form. From here we feel our connection with all of existence and non existence in and outside of time. We experience profound empathy with all beings. Ultimately we come to realize and experience that there is no absolute "other".  And we naturally offer ourselves in response to what the world and life ask of us. The process for arriving at this direct experience of self as vast awareness generally requires foundational practices to prepare the ground for the journey.  Once these foundations are in place, the practitioner is ready for intermediate and advanced practices to support and further the awakening process. These intermediate and advanced practices are what I offer.

Preliminaries

Those who work with me generally have completed some preliminary (and even extensive) counseling or psychotherapy and many have experience with meditation and yoga. If you initiate work with me whether individually or in a class or group, you acknowledge in good faith that you are of sound mental health.  If you have not yet completed that foundational work, or you are experiencing some mental or emotional instability I may refer you to other resources.

 
  • Increased awareness of patterns of thinking and muscular holding in the body. Skill in releasing that holding to allow grounded stability while allowing energy, emotion and passion to flow freely.

  • Simple breathing and awareness techniquesthat you can use anytime for free for the rest of your life to reduce stress, anxiety, depression and to energize and inform you.

  • Skill in identifying and establishing responsive subtle boundaries to reduce entanglement in the drama of the conditioned mind and in unhealthy ways of relating.

  • A felt sense of embodiment in which you experience aliveness, tingling, vibration throughout your entire body. Healing the split between mind and body, head and heart, and other areas that are in need of vitality.

  • Connecting and aligning mind, body, emotion and spirit that opens up a clear path of integrity, strength and courage in which you begin to experience the inside and outside as "not two". ​ 

  • Practice in changing your state at will, stopping your thoughts, and becoming aware of the vastness of Awareness itself.

  • Practice in expanding your awareness outward to receive information from a much larger experience of reality​ in order to make better decisions and respond more compassionately. 

  • Practice in releasing your self to that expanded Self while fully expressing your particular individual gifts of presence. Find and follow your passion that meets the evolving world's needs.

  • ​Clarity about your unique gifts and the potential for offering them to the world of conventional reality while transmitting and translating expanded awareness to the world at large. 

Frequently Asked Questions

How Will We Begin?

We will likely meet via video conferencing. I'll want to know about your life, history and background so I get a sense of who you are. I may ask about what you hope for in our sessions, what traumas or challenges you have encountered in your life, your relationship history, your vision and purpose in life. 

Ongoing Process & Methods

My work is informed by training in bodywork, psychotherapy, and spiritual practices of various traditions.  Ultimately my intention is to help you release the limitations of your thinking mind and disperse the awareness of your awareness throughout your entire body (and beyond).  I use techniques such as focusing inward on physical and subtle knots and contractions, feeling them, giving them expression and releasing them using breath, words, emotion, movement and energetic release.  Along the way I teach a lot about subtle energy boundaries, edges, qualities and their relationship to thought, emotion, physical ailments and life issues.

What Benefits and Results Might I Expect?

As you clear away the obsolete patterns of holding, thinking and feeling, you will become more alive and aware, first of your own interior feelings, longings and boundaries, and then of your constructed patterns of beliefs and behavior, and ultimately of spacious ever-present awareness and an embodied sensitivity through which truth and clarity allow ease, flow and grace.  This clear light of awareness enables an alignment with what is good, true and beautiful and so improves all areas of one's life. Those who are not ready to stabilize this level of awareness may be able to access it as a temporary state, which will bring a sense of well being and potential to come. With consistent practice and a strong desire to grow, it is possible for most people to enjoy significant progress on their path of awakening.

How Long Will It Take?

Many of my clients/students see me for several years because they find our consultations useful to all areas of their lives in real time. Others meet for a shorter period of time to work through temporary adjustments to significant events.  Healing, growth and awakening at a transformative level take time, but I do not require a set number of sessions. Usually, we will both know when we are complete. And you are free to discontinue at any time. I see people once each week, or once every two weeks and sometimes monthly or at random, depending on the person and circumstances. Sessions typically last approximately 55 minutes. 

How Much Will It Cost?  What is the Cancellation Policy?

I am no longer a licensed psychotherapist and I do not bill insurance.  The fees range from $140 for individual private pay to $220 corporate sponsored coaching per session.  I also work with non-profits at a discounted corporate rate.  Payment is generally required at the time of each session. I require full payment if a session is cancelled within 24 hours of our scheduled time.  Feel free to contact me if you would like to schedule an appointment or learn more.
