WHAT I DO
I help people connect with their inner vitality and the primordial wisdom in which they and we all are drenched.
I help people work with the obstacles, parts and patterns that, in their effort to protect and serve the system, mute, obscure, or warp the very vitality and wisdom they are committed to protect and serve. They too are expressions of that deeper wisdom and vitality. Together we will transform your relationship with these so that their hidden genius, and the buried treasure they carry can become a glorious part of your life and the life of your communities.
Increasingly, my work, teaching, and my spiritual practice is informed by ancient and contemporary non-dual contemplatives. As I grow, my healing practice is informed and transformed by said growth.
WHO I AM
My undergraduate studies included a focus on music, and an obsessive exploration of philosophy and mystical theology.
After a number of years playing music in various bands throughout the great northwest, I returned to graduate school and got my doctorate at the Massachusettes School of Professional Studies (now, William James College).
I’m a licensed psychologist since 1992, trained in EMDR, Brainspotting, and I am a Certified Internal Family Systems (IFS) consultant.
I am also a husband since 1988, and a father of two wonderful and wonder-filled children. I play the saxophone and clarinet and sing.
For many years, I co-led a monthly drumming and chanting service at Temple Emanu-El. As part of a larger contemplative prayer sub-community, this service has been going on since 1996 or so.
My office is in Providence Rhode Island where I have a busy psychotherapy/consultation/teaching/healing practice.
