I offer sessions at my office in Racine, WI, via Zoom and by phone.
I am a transpersonal and somatic psychotherapist, educator, a hospice worker, healer, author of The Effects of Compassionate Presence on the Dying, and founder of the School of Unusual Life Learning.
Since leaving a career in engineering 17 years ago, I have worked in many venues to help people fearlessly embrace a life which includes aging, dying and nature. This has involved years at bedsides with the elderly and children, in study and research, in contributing pioneering ideas to somatic psychology, in death and grief work, teaching, and years deeply involved with creating the Art of Dying projects in New York City.
I believe my insights on energy and the body through aging, illness, and dying are unique because they have been derived from this wide lens of human experience and a deep understanding of our mortal journey.
