Philosophy

 

I created the word “edlightenment” to describe what I do: a collaborative process of experiential discovery leading to new learning, new choices, and new ways to respond to our human environment. The practice of mindfulness, a moment-to-moment observation and awareness, is intrinsic to this process. One’s commitment to self-learning, while being present and awake, creates change and reward. We work interactively to honor individual needs and personal contexts, respecting each person and relationship as a unique domain. I believe a deeper appreciation for one’s life narrative is the journey our lives compel to take.

As a licensed marriage and family therapist, I work with individuals, couples, families and groups. In addition to “talk” therapy, I offer artistic modes of therapy including the use of written and visual expression.
