"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." He's describing where the Hero will find the treasure that is the goal of their quest. The treasure that the Hero has been searching for- it's waiting in the very place they fear to go.
I share this quote with you since I feel it captures two essential truths about our journey of growth and healing. First, whether it's through therapy or by other wonderful means, your quest to make your life meaningful and fulfilling is a heroic journey! Second, whatever you're seeking is already waiting for you, maybe even right in front of you and the journey leads into someplace you fear to tread. The way out is in!
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.
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.
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.
