An Integrative Approach to Counseling

My approach to counseling does not diagnose or mine for details about what is wrong with you. The goal is to work collaboratively with you to restore the flow and balance of life energy for cultivating empowerment, restoring authenticity, expanding consciousness, and clarifying direction.

I offer general, crisis, and relationship counseling, but specialize in Jungian dream work and Kundalini yoga for those intending to work the deeper boundaries between body and mind.  Dreams are a reliable window into the needs of the psyche while Kundalini yoga strengthens and balances the physiological systems responsible for emotional and mental regulation. 

This two-tiered approach to mind and body treats many forms of emotional and psychological unease including trauma-based anxiety, depression, feelings of disconnection or emptiness, relationship distress, and the loss of meaning.

Crisis Counseling

There are times when life situations become unsustainable and finding a resolution seems outside of your internal resources. It is not weakness to seek consultation, but a sign you are prepared to follow through with substantive change.  At the rootof any problem, we have choice and the possibility of finding the way forward. 

Relationship Counseling

Most of our distress comes from strained personal relationships. Yet, this is the area where we experience the most profound lessons. Relationships reveal the shadow sides of our nature. Like individuals, relationships are unique and carry their own life force. No matter what direction your relationship needs to go, communication, self-awareness, and courage are necessary.

Why Work with Dreams?

Dreams are reflections of the deeper psyche without the controlling influence of the waking ego. By observing dreams, we get a clearer picture of what is happening within the unconscious providing valuable information as how to consciously become one’s true self.

Practically speaking, dreams are a blueprint, or a map, correcting the imbalances of the present, clearing the memories and experiences of the past, and detailing how to proceed into areas of future growth. Dreams use an archetypal language of symbolic imagery to communicate meaning.

Why Kundalini Yoga?

Kundalini is a composition of Old-World technology developed through generations of practitioners spanning thousands of years. It is a comprehensive set of practices combining meditation, breathing, mantras, movements, and asanas for the purpose of raising and expanding consciousness. 

Kundalini works through balancing and directing the subtle energetic flow of prana that supports and controls physiological systems responsible for emotional and mental states.  When the energies are balanced, we become more grounded, centered, authentic, and connected. 

Workshops and Retreats

I currently collaborate with team members to facilitate workshops and retreats in two different spaces; the first one is guiding the process for establishing trust and psychological safety for teams in the corporate space and the second is teaching Kundalini yoga. There are profound differences between these types of retreats but the goal of unlocking potential to support growth and evolution is the same.  

About Todd

Originally from the United States, I am now based in Chiangmai. I have over twenty years professional experience in school settings, employee assistance programs, teaching classes and workshops, responding to front-line critical incidents, over eight years supporting US service members at bases overseas, private practice, and teaching Kundalini yoga. 

As a Jungian I have the distinction of being the last analysand of the late author, Robert Johnson (He, We, She, Innerwork), I have also analyzed with Dr. Anita Chapman of the Jungian Intermont Society in Asheville, NC; and Father Gregory Santos, Zurich trained analyst and Aquinas Theology scholar in Flagstaff, AZ. In addition I have been supervised by the author and international lecturer Dr. Eduardo Duran (Cultural Imperialism, Buddha in Redface). 

In 2009 I transitioned to Thailand where I was invited to study Vipassana meditation at Kyiatisaung Monastery in Thaton, Myanmar.  Over a period of seven years, I ordained periodically as a monk.  Alongside my Jungian training, while living and working in rural Hawaii and Navajo Nation, I was immersed within indigenous spiritual and healing traditions. 

Most recently I have become a certified Kundalini instructor. I have studied other forms of yoga, but Kundalini is, for me, the most salient because it is specifically designed to address psychological, emotional, and spiritual issues.  Kundalini Yoga, Theravada Buddhism, Aquinas Theology, Indigenous Spirituality, Jungian Analytical Psychology,  and Professional Counseling all share in the same ethics and goals of supporting individual healing through the expansion and growth of consciousness.
