I come from a unique background with a mosaic of experiences that have brought me to this field.
I blend the threads of activism from my days as a gay youth leader in Boston and an AIDS activist in NYC, of rigorous academic training from my days at Columbia University and the California Institute of Integral Studies, and the spiritual energies initiated by my ongoing deep involvement with the Western Mystery Tradition and Hermetic sciences. I have been supervising others in their spiritual quests for over ten years within my tradition, and have been a practitioner of a form of Hermetic meditation for over twenty years.
I work with individuals, couples and families. My approach is a flexible, organic experience of healing for many emotional concerns, particularly anxiety, depression, grief, fear, anger, trauma, sexual and creative blockages. By working with the “here and now”, we can bring the hidden into light. That which has caused you to distort your inner strength can be brought to the foreground, and there, choices can be made.
I have experience supporting a variety of relationship configurations and lifestyles, and can assist in navigating issues that can surface in these choices, such as boredom, jealousy, intimacy blockages, differing needs and desires, sexual and emotional satisfaction.
Having worked in the corporate world for over twenty years as a Director of Litigation Support in three top global law firms, I have a strong understanding of the demands we can put on ourselves to be “successful,” and the prices that we sometimes pay. I also have experience in ways to reclaim freedom, autonomy and peace in such environments.
I am dedicated to continual self-growth and my quest is often reflected in my work. My truth is not yours, yet I can help you along the path. The experiences I’ve had in my life have proven to be of help to others in their navigation of difficult times. I hope to contribute the learning I’ve gained through difficult life challenges, as well as the wisdom gained through successes I’ve achieved.
Having been in therapy myself for many years, I hope to offer insights into the growth process, as seen through the lens of varying methodologies. Via my spiritual work, I am deeply schooled in cross cultural mythology and the underlying power and potency of the symbolism in classical myth. I am hoping to contribute compassion, empathy and support to your work.
