I have had a 30 year career working as a psychotherapist in many settings and with literally thousands of clients. I’ve worked in hospital inpatient units and outpatient clinics. Early in my career I was determined to get experience in traditional settings as part of a foundation to my work. I earned a Master’s Degree in Theology in 1973 and a Ph.D. in Pastoral Psychology in 1989. I became a licensed psychologist in 1991. Since that time I have supplemented my education with extensive training in the interface of spirituality and psychotherapy. This training has been with Tom Yeomans at the Concord Institute and in Shamanic Studies at the Four Winds Society.
For the past twenty years I have been in private practice in Central Massachusetts.
Since a very early age I felt a calling to, pull toward and urge for more in life. I was not always sure what the more I was seeking was, but I knew that I wanted more than average, unreflected upon life offered. When I first encountered writings about psychotherapy in college it was clear to me that I had a vocational direction that incorporated this passion. I began to rejoice that the personal passion and professional life could thrive together. The passion for growth and fulfillment could be infused with training and education. It has been a profound privilege over the years to be in this work. It is one of the many ways I consider myself deeply fortunate in my life. My professional life has followed my personal passions from the very beginning.
This is, to me, the essence of why we are born: to grow into the fullness of our humanity and to blossom into the depth of our Soul. This is our birth right. Psychotherapy is an important contributor to this process of growth. Through psychotherapy the personality can drop some of its barriers, limitations or fears to the process of growth.
In addition to psychotherapy I teach meditation and spiritual development. I have meditated most of my adult life and am presently a student of Her Holiness Sai Maa Lakshmi. I have four grown sons and five grandchildren. My other current passions are camping, photography, politics and mystical poetry.
