The Center for Integrative Psychotherapy was founded to promote psychotherapeutic methodologies that integrate the mind, body and spirit and to support health practitioners in their own journey of self-integration.
The word "qi" in Chinese means "energy." According to traditional Chinese philosophy, qi is a form of fundamental life energy that is found throughout the universe and is responsible for health and vitality. "Gong," meanwhile, means "skill." Qigong (the skill of attracting energy) is an ancient system of healing that combines postures, exercises (also known as "movements"), breathing techniques and meditation to improve and enhance the body's supply of qi, and to increase one's sense of well-being.

I have been training with Master Nan Lu and his Grandmaster Xi-Hau Xu in medical qigong. This training is teaching me about Traditional Chinese Medicine and how to look at dis-ease - including anxiety and depression - from an energetic point of view. I am in the process of developing groups to teach simple qigong movements and theory for anxiety and depression. Check back for more details.
The Center for Integrative Psychotherapy is the home for the Albany Center for Humanity in Unity. Each Tuesday from 6-7:30 pm we come together for a meditation group, where we might listen to a video or audio discourse from Her Holiness Sai Maa, meditate, and offer each other an energy blessing called Diksha. This is an evening of calm and peace in a community of others who feel drawn to spreading love and light around the planet. It is not religion! All are welcome. Read More...
Over the past several years, initially though the Humanity in Unity Mentoring program, I have been providing spiritual mentoring. I consistently receive feedback from my mentees that because I am so honest and authentic they are able to understand complex spiritual teachings on a pragmatic level. Because I have done my own work to release my own fears, I can recognize and appreciate the culture of America and the common blocks we have about who we really are. Some people go through the Humanity in Unity program, while others prefer to talk to me individually to coach them.
