Are you available for consultations or psychotherapy?
We can explore what it might be like to work together. If we both believe it might be helpful to proceed, we can talk about what the current waiting time is and whether you want to be on the waiting list or prefer a referral.
Are you available long distance?
Do I have to know about Jung or dreams or be an artist to work with you?
Not at all. I had the good fortune to be exposed to training in several schools of therapy. Different kinds of therapy are suited to different kinds of therapists, people, and situations.
I do like to make sure there is a good match between your personality, values, and goals and my training, personality, and styles of working. I also take pleasure in matching people with experienced therapists.
Some people want to do brief work on specific problems; others don't have a specific problem but want to explore dreamwork, psycho-spiritual development, increased awareness of the relationship between the psyche and the body, the process of individuation and to enrich their relationship with their inner world.
I'm interested in having some executive coaching. Do you do that?
I'm a therapist. Do you provide consultation for therapists?
I do individual consultation with therapists. I learn so much! If you'd like to be on a waiting list for consultation, please phone my office (650 856 0302) and we'll talk. If I'm not the best person for your consultation needs, I'll be happy to refer you to a trusted colleague.
Do you supervise trainees for expressive arts therapy certification?
Yes. When possible, I do. I supervise individually at my office as and when my schedule permits.
Do you teach therapists and dreamers about your particular approaches to dream work and the creative arts?
I am always happy to explore possibilities for one-on-one work and I can refer you to others trained in my approaches if the waiting period is longer than you would like.
Do you consult with people on their creative projects?
I delight in working with people on any kind of creative project. It’s one of my favorite things to do. I’ve worked with people on everything from designing training programs to planning board meetings to envisioning retreats to writing non-fiction and fiction to breaking through barriers in art projects to designing doctoral dissertations and art studios!
Do you teach meditation to groups or individuals?
Currently I offer one-on-one meditation instruction to adults with a special focus on the needs of executives and professionals. While my decade of training was in yogic meditation, I tailor the meditation style to your outer and inner needs rather than training you in one fixed method.
Do you lead workshops I could take?
I do give workshops nationally and internationally. Please contact the organization sponsoring the workshop to enroll.
Would you give a workshop for our group?
Do you teach anywhere I might take classes with you on an ongoing basis?
Not currently. For many years, I was a part-time Full Professor and Founder/Director of the Creative Expression masters and doctoral level programs at the Institute of Transpersonal Psychology in Palo Alto, California. I resigned so I could have more time for my practice, my writing, and art; but I sustain my connection with the school as a Professor Emeritus. Please contact their website for more information about the creative expression programs offered on campus, online, and through the extension program. One way to "study" with me is to enroll in any one of several course of study I developed for the ITP Global Program; these let you to do in-depth work with a mentor specially trained to lead you through my materials. Courses include units on women's spiritual development, creative expression, and transpersonal psychotherapy.
