For over thirty years as a practicing psychoanalyst, writer,  world traveler, psychotherapist, family mediator and mindfulness practitioner, as well as a wife and mother, I have learned the importance of “walking the talk” exemplifying balance in life, living life to the fullest, and experiencing each present moment.   In my experience, patients grow and benefit not only from the depth of the therapeutic encounter per se, but also from an intuitive sense of their therapist’s self actualization and example.  Over the years I have moved from classical Freudian analytic practice to a more relational practice, working out of my home office where patients inevitably have a real sense of who I am as a human being. In my office in Aptos, in the Santa Cruz mountains, we often begin sessions walking  slowly and silently together up the 100 steps to the redwood meditation grove and hold sessions there.
