What is Ecopsychology?

Ecopsychology perceives humans as integral to and embedded in a living world.

Aligning with wild nature promotes clarity, resilience, and the ethical imagination required to thrive. Dynamic sustainability is possible—from the inside out.

Special! HEALING SHAME, Five Sessions for $425

Shame gets a bad rap in today’s world.

Is condemnation deserved? Is avoidance wise?

Might shame play a vital healing role in living systems?

Whether shame becomes a friend or enemy to evolution depends entirely upon one's ability to work lucidly with this powerful affect.

I take an ecological approach to shame. This perspective enables me to perceive and honor it’s powerful healing role in complex social (and ecological) systems.

During the five Sessions, we will explore how you avoid shame and the price that you (and those around you) pay for this avoidance. Most importantly, we will clarify and clear the path for you to experience wholesome shame; one that calls you home to a deeper belonging with yourself, others, and all of Life.


Then join me for a pioneering journey from traumatic to beneficial shame. Some journeys require good company, and this is one of them.

I will share insights, practices, and skills that enable shame to play its crucial role in mending broken relations. Even in dark times, we have the freedom to move towards clarity.

Five Sessions for $425
Guaranteed to change your relationship to shame!
If you are dissatisfied after the first session, we can stop & I will refund your entire fee.

I honor the power of accountability. I am devoted to the dignity of shame. How can we become post-modern indigenous people? This crucial inquiry is the heart and soul of my practice.
