I work within a mindfulness frame and look at mental health holistically including the physical body, the social environment, and larger cultural influences.
I provide psychotherapy services specializing in working with clients to build a life worth living without get caught up in the fraught psychiatric system of pathologizing diagnoses and bandaid medications. I have experience working with clients struggling with addiction, psychosis, neurosis (depression, anxiety), and personality disorders. This includes work with individuals of high notoriety and affluence as well as children of such families, who's status often exacerbates suffering. Prior to changing careers, I worked for over 25 years as a creative director and bring the same curiosity, creativity, and love to therapy as I did working with brilliantly complex and often troubled talented unique individuals in art, music, film, and fashion.
