My Zig-zag Path

I used to think that manifestation was a matter of thinking up my best life and applying mantras. Now I see that it is about being a quiet warrior who follows each unfolding  turn, all the while deepening into receptivity and staying in touch with the truths that my experiences have given me. 


I have been a client in therapy for over two decades. I saw my first therapist at age 23 after I had a peak experience that was very powerful but completely lacking in context, support, or direction -- and was catalyzed by using various substances.


While my introduction to psychotherapy was intended to help me discover how to apply the insights of my startling awakening, it inevitably turned to more practical matters of dealing with anxiety, trauma, co-dependence and identity, relationships (including relationships to substances), motivation, and family history. Through all of this I grew in my individuation, my sense of an inner compass, and my ability to relax my need to control things and people.


Today, I have found a path that provides a gradually dawning clarity of how to walk it, how to enjoy walking it, and where to find the best support for being on it.


My path has led me from Virginia to Madrid to San Francisco to Portugal. While your scenery will look different, the same guideposts can be helpful for you, along your own unfolding journey, following the road of motivation. I hesitate to call it a method, because it appeared to me more as a pattern, within which infinite manifestations may abound. Cheers to entering and passing through the seven Alchemy Door portals that will mark your rhythms and help you follow what is compelling, every day, over and over again. Along the way, I hope you take time to enjoy the manifestations that will both surprise you , and be just perfect for this present moment.

It is my intention that the counseling and consultation services I provide can help clients open up to more of the fullness of our potential, and help with tolerating and navigating the experience of "groundlessness" - a common quality of nonordinary states of consciousness - which contrasts with the mainstream trend towards definition and specificity.

This is an invitation to wholeness. 

We are living in a time when there are many existential threats to our collective future, the earth itself, and individual freedoms. In this context we can often get stuck, losing sight of our deepest motivations and our loftiest goals. 

We also live in a time of unprecedented access to networks of likeminded others via digital mediums.

This is an invitation to enter a state of curiosity...

about the intelligence of your own internal guidance system...

and its relationship to the cosmos. 

In preparing yourself for higher states of consciousness, building a lifestyle based in curiosity transports you to a state of openness to the Unknown - be it the future, the drips of clarity that come when we least expect them, or the gentle voice inside that trusts the path you are on.
