"When you reflect
on the infinite number of happenstances that coalesced to produce
you, then you understand how unique, how precious, how sacred
you really are. Your task is to cultivate that precious, sacred
nature and help it to flower." Robert Aitken, Roshi
We all are continuing to find our way through the pandemic; some of us are making our way with good fortune, and some of us with grief and loss. I am continuing to use doxy.me for telehealth (a hippa-compliant website), and it has been working out better than I thought. Perhaps soon I will be able to do some in person sessions. One of the advantages of telehealth is that I have been able to add clients who are out of the immediate Portland area.
I have 26 articles on this website's Articles Page that have a wealth of information on a variety of topics. In addition, soon I will be adding two or three articles related to our experiences and challenges with the pandemic. My articles are also a good way to get a sense of my professional work, interests, and areas of expertise.
I am a licensed psychologist with an independent practice at two locations in Portland, Oregon. I
specialize in integrating psychological and spiritual growth,
and work with people of all religious and spiritual beliefs, Jewish,
Protestant, Catholic, and Eastern. My own background is Protestant,
Catholic, and Zen Buddhist.
The focus of my clinical
work includes formation and clarification of identity, development
of self-esteem, anxiety, depression, post trauma, loss and grief,
creativity, artists' issues, career development, religious, existential
and spiritual issues, mindfulness practice, and meditation.
