Embracing life and loss with compassionate awareness

I offer retreats and courses integrating Buddhist meditation and psychotherapy, drawing on the wisdom of Buddhist psychology. Through a combination of meditation (including mindfulness and metta), self-reflection and psychological inquiry, these powerful practices and teachings deepen our awareness of the present moment and develop a more compassionate relationship to ourselves and others.

Although I am not currently offering long-term individual psychotherapy to new clients, I do offer limited individual sessions to those attending my courses and retreats.
