An Uncommon Therapy: Healing Arts

We embark on a journey together, when we come together in this unique relationship. The voyage requires respect, trust, and close attention to the passages. No journeys are ever identical. Each voyage requires a special map, one that is elaborated as we journey.  As your guide, I keep us on course, and when necessary, change direction so we can arrive where we intended to.

I am skilled in different methods. Methods are tools, instruments we apply to our enterprise. They are not the destination.  We are whole persons, not symptoms. I relate to you, as a whole person, empowering you to co-navigate with me. Your journey is tailored uniquely to you, and the currents at hand.

To help us understand the passing landscapes, I draw from many wisdoms and many cultures. The East offers much insight and practices to achieve a treasured life. The ancient and integral practices are increasingly being validated as effective by Western scientific inquiry. From the West, Humanistic and Psychoanalytic methods, as well as Empirically Validated Therapies (research based) often represented by initials (CBT, ACT, DBT, and even four lettered ones like EMDR and MBSR). I may even encourage you to use some complementary therapies, like aromatherapy. 

The holistic vision, of you, and of the areas of attention, is one of the qualities that makes this an uncommon therapy.  More qualities to follow.... In the meantime, I offer you a quote, one of my favorites, as there are many, that is fundamental to what I consider therapy to be about. Living! Therapy is an inquiry and instrumental guidance that enable maximal living! My method, Dynamic Mind, emphasize the -ing part of living. To live is to act in the world. We act every moment, whether we are aware of it or not, and whether we choose our action or not. Take control of that and change your life exponentially.

“I beg you... have patience with everything unresolved in your heart, and try to love the questions themselves, as if they were locked rooms, or books written in a strange language. Don’t search for the answers, which could not be given to you know, because you would not be able to live them. And the point is, to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps then, some day... gradually, without even noticing, you may live your way into the answer.”
— Rainier Maria Rilke
