"It is by going down into the abyss that we recover the treasures of life. Where you stumble, there lies your treasure.
The very cave you are afraid to enter turns out to be the source of what you are looking for.
The damned thing in the cave that was so dreaded has become the center."
Joseph Campbell, speaking at Esalen in 1983, describing part of the "hero's journey" in understanding our own lives. He's describing where you will find the treasure that you're been searching for- it's in the very place you're afraid of. I share this quote with you since I feel it captures something essential about our journey of growth and healing. Whether it's through therapy or by other wonderful means, our quest to make our lives meaningful and fulfilling is a heroic journey.
Here For You
I'm a Clinical Psychologist, trained and licensed in the USA, providing psychotherapy for adults in-person in Bangkok and online.
I've been trained in and practiced from a variety of therapeutic approaches. But in fact, that's not very important.
Cultivating Inner Resources
Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) is the ability to be present in the face of challenges and support ourselves in the same way we would support a good friend.
I design and deliver high-impact training for a range of client organizations. I frequently facilitate trainings for corporate and humanitarian clients on resilience, adjusting to change, managing uncertainty, enhancing performance under stress, and other topics.
Supporting Expats and Humanitarians Globally
I specialize in helping expats and humanitarian workers build resilience for challenging work. I have worked with expats and nationals in conflict and post-disaster zones. I also provide remote support to expats and national staff working for corporations, development agencies, and humanitarian responders.
"The greatest discovery of my generation is that human beings can alter their lives by altering their attitudes of mind"
WHAT TO EXPECT AT YOUR FIRST VISIT
Embarking Together On the Path of Self-Healing
Perhaps you're down or anxious or just feel stressed - perhaps work isn't satisfying, or you're lovely or maybe feel that you aren't living the life you were meant to lead. Whatever your needs may be, I am here to offer support based on the science and art of healing and growth. Therapy is a process of growth and self-discovery. Therapy is a process of developing your ability to connect with and listen to yourself, to your own inner wisdom. In sessions I promote behavioral transformation by encouraging engaged, present-moment awareness that can know what's happening, meet pains with compassion and take steps toward the things that matter deeply to you. I have the knowledge, tools and professional experience to help you get back on track.
