often we talk to others. How did we come up with "Talk Therapy"? I don't know...but, now I'm a licensed psychotherapist in Washington and California. I like to talk about relationship stuff; marital, friends, work or school related. Let's try some mindfulness practices and a little self-inquiry . This might really help with the development of important relational qualities such as love, compassion and integrity.
Skype or Hangouts work well for me.

So, here's the deal: silent meditation, active inquiry and guided contemplation. I offer this personal work free of charge. I'm a psycho-therapist with 30+ years of Dharma practice.
The work here is suitable for individuals, couples or work teams. All confidential sessions are offered in person or via phone or Skype.
Active psychotherapy is a spiritual practice that has much overlap with Buddhism. I want to offer psychotherapy to people who have a meditation practice and to those who are beginning meditation, the path of mindfulness and awareness training. Our sessions will be aided by Buddhist teachings and, hopefully, free from attachment to outcomes.
Offering psychotherapy to the meditation community, on a donation basis, is an expression of my own practice.
Much of the work that I would like to do with you involves contacting difficult and painful emotional content without defense and for a purpose other than psychological relief.
I have an active meditation practice that has been aided by many intensive silent retreats. I teach "mindfulness" meditation in the style I was taught, from Burmese and Thai traditions. Sitting meditation is enormously important and a rocket-booster for creative expression.
As a painter, I must feel life, the bodily tactile sense of being alive, in order to bring out a painting. For me, it’s process and product, with a strong emphasis on process. Before I begin painting I may not feel much of anything. So, I just spread some color. From that simple action there often follows a sense of where to go next, or maybe not and I continue to just move the paint. Keep going with an open and shifting awareness; inner…outer…posture…breathe…mood/attitude. Through the body, into the eyes, back into the body. In this way, we develop a practiced freedom of expression and sensitivity.
