Would you like to improve your sense of well-being, clarity, and purpose, so you can achieve your goals in life?

This can be accomplished through psychotherapy or through deep coaching. As a result of expanding your insight and connecting to your own energy, you can reduce stress, improve harmony of mind and body, and gain the joyfulness and the focus needed to reach your goals. This applies to individual growth as well as success for organizations and leadership.

I have been involved with healing and energy practice since 1971, including: meditation, Tai Chi Chuan, and psychotherapy practice, all based on ancient, proven principles as well as the most current understanding of human nature and potential for growth. All of these emphasize deep connection with oneself and others, and the ability to express that connection in daily life.

Benefit from the fruits of these practices and experience—if you want to develop your own clear insight and energy.

Individual Work

Your self-created insight and energy, through guidance and dialogue with an experienced therapist, are a solution for a leading a better life. Through this work we can help you uncover your innate insight and energy, a wonderful resource that each of us has but which few of us use to their full capability.

Connecting to your deepest insight and awareness and to your capacity for energetic action, leads to a life that is more fulfilling, more connected to those around you, and better for family, friends, and society. When your own insight and energy improve, relationships and your ability to express in daily life also improve, and you are better able to achieve your important goals.

Note: I do not take insurance except out-of-network benefits. The reason is that insurance coverage often interferes with the client/therapist relationship and can end abruptly. Rates are reasonable, however.

Organizational and Leadership Work

Individuals in a work environment are often interacting with others whom they would not naturally choose for engagement, or with others who think and act in different ways. Awareness training and action training help bridge the gaps between people and lead to better morale, more mutual support, increased staff engagement, better use of organizational assets, and better outcomes in meeting goals.

If you have ever experienced two staff members (or two groups in an organization) vying for recognition over the other, you know how that can negatively affect the workplace in multiple ways. And if you or staff members are impacted by self-doubts, unrealistic expectations, or communication issues internally or with clients, you also know how that can affect the results the organization can achieve due to low employee engagement, staff turnover, and lost opportunities for the organization.

I worked in the business world for large companies, and then ran my own successful consulting company providing service to organizations of all sizes, for over 35 years. This included experience with planning, marketing, negotiating, implementation, and management of staff.

Leadership success requires not only understanding of the typical internal and environmental issues that make organizations successful, but also requires the individual given a leadership role to be self-aware, to understand communication with a wide variety of personality styles, and to have resources of well-being that allow both patience and assertiveness—and the wisdom to determine which one of those is needed in the moment!
