Services

This life consulting practice draws from my experiences as a community mental health therapist, a yoga teacher, a grief counselor, and a professor of design history. Owing to this depth and breadth of learning and experience, I am able to offer you a variety of therapeutic techniques of self-discovery ranging from dialectical behavior therapy, logotherapy, mind-body somatic therapies, trauma-informed care, narrative grief therapy, and expressive arts therapy. My ultimate aim is to support life acceptance fueled by empowering self-inquiry.

Investing in self-curiosity

Private payment is based on the principle of complete confidentiality and reflects the educational priority of services.

  • No insurance billing eliminates any need to diagnose, share information or pathologize human experience.
  • I utilize a combination of traditional and non-traditional psycho-educational methods often not covered by medical insurance.
  • No insurance billing allows me to focus on your unique self-learning needs instead of insurance requirements and treatment paperwork.

I recommend and encourage clients with chronic or acute mental and medical health needs, in addition to short-term adjustment challenges, to seek appropriate services.

What to expect

The Self Curious Project is a combination of logotherapy, existential philosophy, solution and empowerment focused social-work counseling and mind-body, mindfulness practice invested in therapeutic psychoeducation.

The Self-Curious project is short-term guidance and not a replacement for chronic or acute mental and behavioral interventionist therapy. After the skills building phase of 3-8 sessions clients are welcomed to continue sessions in order to maintain progress or explore other changes in their lives.

If you are experiencing suicidal, homicidal thoughts, hallucinations, delusions, addiction, or other functional impairments please seek assistance through appropriate mental health facilities or please call the National Suicide Prevention Hotline 1-800-273-8255.

I do not offer medication management, court testimony, couple’s and family counseling, or work with clients under 18.
