Psychotherapy is a continuing journey for therapists as much as it is for our clients.  Ongoing training and improvement is my responsibility to you as your therapist and to myself.  Recent experiences include:

Couples Therapy:

Contemplative Practice:

  • Compassion Cultivation Training, CCARE, Stanford University, 2018

  • Compassion Immersion-2, 2018

  • MBSR full course, 2020

  • I practice daily meditation and believe that mindful living brings us joy, compassion and purpose. 



I believe that volunteerism is a beautiful way of cultivating and sharing purpose and love in the community and in my own life.
