At this time I am accepting new patients however time slots are very limited to mostly daytime only and no after school hours.
Please refer to www.psychologytoday.com and search for therapists in your area should our schedules not work well together.
Generally, individual sessions are 45 minutes long for adults or children yet first appointments (intakes) are generally one hour.
Payment is due at the time of service and at the beginning of sessions (some sessions can be difficult and this ensures that business doesn't interrupt the flow of therapy).

In Kinda Zen sessions, we will learn to be with whatever is going on in our lives, together. Wht a glorious space at the new meditation center and temple! The environment with me during class is one of non-judgement, acceptance and compassion. These are also the fundamental components of mindfulness. One of the best ways to practice meditation is in a group. Group meditation is where we sit together, suffer together and awaken together. I often read some inspiring poetry as well during class as you are relaxing into the moment. I also am giving gentle guidance through the process as well as emotional support, insight, clarity and I teach you a mindfulness skill that can be used lifelong and that has been taught by the best mindfulness psychiatrist, psychologists and researchers in the field.
Over time, this practice of mindfulness and meditation helps us cultivate courage, non-judgement, deep compassion, humor, and stability in the face of all aspects of our daily lives.
Research on mindfulness has shown the following:
Reduced rumination of the mind.
Boosts working memory
Less emotional reactivity
More cognitive flexibility
During these sessions I also discuss the challenges that come with being fully present such as insecurity, fear and disappointment.
*These sessions are not recommended if you have had a recent trauma*
You do not need to bring a mat for Kinda Zen classes and shoes will be left outside of the meditation room so feel free to wear socks to keep your feet warm :)
