"The journey isn't from here to there; it's from there to here."
Jack Kornfield

What to Expect

  • We start with a free initial phone consultation in which you can gain more clarity: We will either confirm our fit together or I will suggest to you other resources than can serve you even better.
  • Moving forward, we meet by phone, Skype or in person in Emeryville or North Berkeley.
  • Assignments between sessions regularly spark growth and inspiration, and I am happy to stay in contact between sessions through email and voice mail.

During our sessions, I will ask you the kinds of questions and listen in a way that helps you discover new perspective and strategies for action.  I will provide structure, feedback and authentic support to ensure that the shifts you make reflect your values and desires.  (See also Individuals and Couples for more detailed descriptions.)

Based on your goals, style of learning and issues you are exploring, the modalities we use will vary (see Approach) as well as the length of sessions:

  • 30-45 min: Incremental progress reports, usually after at least a few longer meetings
  • 60 min:  Solid inquiry and new insight
  • 90-120 min: More in-depth exploration, insight, and integration
  • Ranging in frequency from twice weekly to monthly
