Focusing Institute Certifying Coordinator

Certified Focusing-Oriented Therapist

Certified Focusing Trainer

Personal Statement

I am a Focusing-Oriented Psychotherapist, trainer and Certifying Coordinator offering pyschotherapy and Focusing training in Seattle and on Vashon Island Washington. I offer sessions and training by phone, Skype and in person. My experience with Focusing dates back to the early 80’s. It is a process that is transformational personally and is the heart and soul of my work with others.
My lifelong desire to understand myself and the world around me, led to a degree in philosophy and religion. Although I studied psychology as an undergraduate, it was my exposure to Focusing, and gaining a deeper understanding of myself, that urged me to concentrate on psychology in depth. In addition to practicing therapy, I also teach meditation. I study the crossings of Feldenkrais, Zen and Focusing with Russell Delman through The Embodied Life School. I am passionate about sharing the gifts of meditation and Focusing with others.
