WELCOME TO THE WEBSITE FOR MY PSYCHOTHERAPY PRACTICE IN LOS ANGELES

 

In these troubled times there has been an impressive convergence of the world’s various sources of wisdom, both ancient and contemporary, around the alleviation of human suffering — emotional, psychological and spiritual.  Both the Buddha’s teachings about the mind from 2500 years ago and the most recent knowledge in neuroscience reveal the capacity of the human mind to heal itself, if guided in the right way.

Over the years, as an anthropologist, psychotherapist and meditator, I have studied this self-healing mind both subjectively and objectively and I am able to offer various healing modalities that utilize its potential. These modalities include: individual psychotherapy, EMDR* (to treat trauma), mindfulness meditation (and other contemplative practices based on Buddhist psychology), and Integrative Somatic Therapy.  Through these means I help people to engage their minds in this self-healing process.

 

In addition to the approaches described above, my psychotherapy practice also addresses problems in relationships and includes couple and family therapy, workplace counseling etc.
