Since you're looking for a therapist, my best guess is that you're tired of your current level of suffering.  Entertainment, diversions, substances, processes, and relationships don't stop you from suffering.  Neither do self-help books, one-day seminars, or promises of instant 'cure-alls.'

For real help, there needs to be an axe laid to the root of what causes you suffering: false beliefs, and ideas about: yourself, others, and the future.  You're taught to believe that you have a permanent identity (called the ego), and that if you pursue its desires and avoid its aversions, you'll be happy.  How has that worked for you so far?

In my transpersonal therapy practice, I work to lay bare the roots of the ego, and to show clients there is a different way to live.  You can live a mindful, present-oriented life, where unnecessary suffering is gradually banished permanently.  This includes any suffering due to depression, anxiety, and past painful experiences.

In our work together, I'll introduce you to spiritual and psychological interventions that will help move you towards freedom: mindfulness practice, meditation practice, thought-busting (challenging thoughts that appear true but, are lies), making unconscious 'programs' within you conscious, and examining the patterns of thought, feeling, and behavior that produce so much suffering.

Your own commitment to self-examination requires weekly or bi-weekly therapy meetings, and significant practice or 'home-work' which you do between sessions.  Change doesn't occur without effort but, effort pays off to decrease suffering more than you can imagine.

Come in for an introductory consult.  I'm currently accepting private pay and Aetna clients, and may have room for Blue Cross/Blue Shield clients as of October 1st.  I also have room for participants in upcoming groups and retreats.  More information can be found in the tabs at the top of my webpage www.simplyawake.com or call me directly to schedule an appointment, 267-454-8034

Helping you to heal from depression, anxiety, simple trauma (PTSD) or chronic developmental trauma

This is the process of discovering and learning: what trauma may have done to your brain and body,

•    what painful experiences have done to your view of the world,
•    how you've coped with what trauma's done to your brain and body (you've probably tried to soothe and regulate yourself in many different ways),
•    how you can change your view of yourself, others, and the world by examining how your views have been influenced by your painful experiences  and/or trauma and
•    how you can feel physically and emotionally better by unwinding the tension inherent in untreated trauma.

I recommend simple body-based techniques, easy meditation practices, and non-pharmacological interventions that can help loosen the grip of trauma on your body.  When important for your recovery, I will also help you to find a psychiatrist for an evaluation and treatment with medication.

Helping people in the LGBTQI communities

I have been working with people in the LGBTQI communities as an open and accepting therapist for 16 years including:

•    helping people to determine if they are gay, lesbian or bisexual
•    assisting in the 'coming out' process
•    helping people understand how to relate and date with more ease and grace
•    supporting those diagnosed with HIV/AIDS
•    helping people to know their true spiritual nature and possibility of enlightenment.

Helping you to become 'Simply Awake' or Spiritually Enlightened

This is the process of the total integration of all aspects of the human condition: Shadow, Persona, Ego, Body, and the Transcendent Self, sometimes called Consciousness.   I can help you to move into this condition called Awakening or Enlightenment, and to discover what the myths and truths are about this condition.  I've been guiding people into the condition called awakening for 15 years and it is the heart and soul of my practice to work as a guide to enlightenment.  The traditional approach to enlightenment was for a teacher to work with a student in one-to-one sessions; that's how we'll do it too.

Helping those who are 'Simply Awake' or Spiritually Enlightened with Shadow, Ego and Trauma Issues

It's difficult for people who are already spiritually awakened to the truth that they are also the Transcendent, to find a mentor who can also help with that which arises during the purification process after the initial awakening.  Relationship issues, career issues, memories of long suppressed traumas, and other aspects of the ego or shadow (shadowy hidden parts of oneself) can arise even when the ego is no longer at the center of your life.  The process from glimpses of awakening, to a steady state of being awake as Self, and then the transitions on the way to No-self can be difficult and frightening.  I can help you do that kind of work.   I've been awake since 2001 and guiding people into the condition called awakening for 15 years; dealing with the arising issues is the most satisfying and challenging part of my work, requiring a continued refining of discriminative intelligence on my part AND yours.
