Personal Statement about Training Program:
- I have practiced spiritually oriented Focusing as a natural skill for 50+ years of my life, even before I learned from Eugene Gendlin that it can be taught to people of all ages and backgrounds.

- While I developed my own unique methods for teaching individuals and groups, I have also drawn from the rich sources developed by other practitioners.

- In my private practice I apply focusing in combination with other Psychotherapeutic disciplines.

A Sample of my Work:
- Focusing is a special way of coming home to yourself, and of encouraging those whom you love and work with to come home to themselves.

- Focusing helps you create an inner climate of caring presence, letting go of 'fixing', controlling, manipulating, judging, shaming - all those basically violent ways we use to abuse ourselves and others.

- Focusing teaches you how to turn your attention inside your body and listen, so the energy of your life can be freed to move forward into the unique expression of your true self.
