INTUITIVE COUNSELING FOR INDIVIDUALS & COUPLES
Sessions available on Zoom or by phone
In my eighteen years in private practice, I have worked with a wonderful and diverse clientele, located all over the world, helping them connect to clarity and the best in themselves. I use help people find actionable solutions. The goals are to unlock persistent emotional, health, career and relationship barriers; to better understand each factor of a decision; and to strategize for an outcome that leads to more joy.
CONSULTING FOR BUSINESSES & ORGANIZATIONS
I am currently consulting for Launch Inc doing executive support, team building, employee counseling and development as well as special event programming for staff. My previous corporate accounts have been in entertainment, real estate and the non-profit sector.
GUIDED IMAGERY SESSIONS & CLASSES
Sessions available on Zoom or by phone
A deeply relaxing journey into the subconscious:
Imagine resting comfortably with your eyes closed; being led through rich mental landscapes; being prompted to imagine a detailed visual world full of information that helps you understand yourself and what really matters to you.
I have been leading an in-person weekly Guided Imagery Meditation for many years that is now solely on Zoom. If you would like to host a private meditation on Zoom for you and your friends, colleagues or organization, please contact me here.
You can also listen to my Guided Imagery Albums on Soundcloud.
SOCIAL JUSTICE WORK
I am on the board of Frontline Dads in Philadelphia and have the great joy of partnering with the founder, Reuben Jones. We work together to help connect donor resources directly to those in the most need (bails, therapy and assistance for victims of domestic violence, rental assistance, basic supplies for families and more).
I also produce (not host) A Changed Mind Podcast - a powerful show focused on trauma and recovery and just produced & co-directed Silenced No More, a short film
addressing domestic violence.
In addition, I coordinate the charitable efforts and projects for Launch Inc's generous giving to the community. Focuses of these efforts has ranged from everything from helping protect Asian seniors from hate-crimes to protecting the welfare of farm workers to assisting rape victims with medical care and much more.
PREVIOUS PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE
For over 10 years, while building my private practice, I proudly worked as part of the Institute for Health and Healing at one of the best hospitals in San Francisco: California Pacific Medical Center.
I ran the Medical Literature Research Program and the Planetree Health Library. I led the information research team that provided comprehensive collections of literature about each patient’s particular condition from both the conventional and complementary/integrative worlds of medicine.
Each project required hours of scouring medical databases for relevant studies; reviewing scientific journals; searching for patient services and examining consumer health books and publications from respected sources for useful information. Each information research project began with me doing an in-depth interview with the patient about their symptoms, concerns, feelings, medical history and possible
causes of their conditions. These years enhanced my private counseling practice greatly because they helped me understand the complexity of the body, its needs and its solutions from so many different perspectives.
In-Hospital Group Work
I had the privilege of leading a weekly, group guided imagery workshop at
San Francisco General Hospital. All members of each group were homeless, HIV positive and detoxing from Methamphetamine. The goal of each series was to help patients work on their most challenging memories and perceptions of self, in a safe environment and without judgement.
Weekly Workshop with the Previously Incarcerated
I led classes for those recently released from prison who were in pursuit of employment and a more functional and rewarding life through the exceptional placement program at B.O.S.S. in Oakland.
