We paint and...

we talk to others... Talk Therapy, mentoring, or just sharing with fellow travelers. I'm a licensed psychotherapist in Washington and California. I like to talk about relationship stuff; marital, friends, work or school related, and the value of creative expression. Let's try some mindfulness practices and a little self-inquiry. This might really help with the important relationships in our lives.

Skype or Hangouts work well for me.

Dharma Therapy...

involves silent meditation, active inquiry and guided contemplation. These are the core practices for mindfulness-based psychotherapy. As a licensed therapist I like to offer services free of charge. The Dharma component comes from 35 years of practice. It's been a very interesting path. 

This work 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 therapy to people who have a meditation practice and to those who are beginning meditation. Sessions will be seasoned with Buddhist teachings where appropriate. 

Offering psychotherapy to the meditation community, on a donation basis, is an expression of my own practice. 

What are we really doing here?

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. 

Where is the life?

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.
