Punk drummer then Songwriter then Dharma Practitioner then Social Justice Educator then EMDR/Trauma/Addiction Therapist then Author/Podcaster now simultaneously...



I have been working in partnership with other clinicians, treatment centers, musicians, artists, educators and social justice advocates for many years now.  These partnerships have allowed me to do the work that I have done at a greater scale, with a diversity of viewpoints and creativity.  The partnerships on this site are the ones that I currently engage in fully, sometimes as a leader, sometimes as a collaborator.  The result is an ever expanding community filled with diverse ideas, strategies, brainstorms and projects.  They cover my therapeutic endeavors, mindfulness training, and digital and traditional media creation.


REFUGE RECOVERY CENTERS is the premiere Buddhist addictions treatment program, providing comprehensive care from Detoxification/Residential through Transitional Living.  As Clinical Director, I helped founder Noah Levine and others to create and launch the program.



THE CAMDEN CENTER provides Intensive Outpatient Services and Transitional Living for people with PTSD, depression, and anxiety as well as addiction, although an addiction diagnosis is not necessary. Founder Dr. Jason Shiffman has brought together the top clinicians and providers in Los Angeles to provide truly individualized treatment.

INSTITUTE FOR CREATIVE MINDFULNESS: Dr. Jamie Marich, author of several books on EMDR and trauma, has created an EMDR training platform, the Institute for Creative Mindfulness, a division of her company Mindful Ohio.  As an EMDRIA Approved Consultant, I have joined Jamie’s faculty and am now available to provide EMDR Basic Training and special topics in EMDR training nationally and internationally.
