I am a Seasoned Psychotherapist and Transformational Coach who brings fierce commitment, enormous training and finely tuned intuition to helping my clients make dramatic shifts in their relationships and in their lives.

I partner actively with my clients to take their biggest leap, to really push into that which has kept them stuck and stand with them to kick it out and step into the lives they have been dreaming of.

Traditionally we think of psychotherapists as being above the fray, they are dispassionate, knowledgeable people who you never really get to know and to whom you pour out your soul.

For me, being an active partner with you as you take on really changing your life, is far from an impersonal process. Not that I am going to burden you with my problems (who wants to be their therapist’s therapist?!) but I want you to know a little about me, what brought me here, what makes me tick and what inspires me in the work I do. If you want my more formal credentials click here.

I am a powerful, loving, compassionate and highly trained therapist and transformational coach. I live, eat and breathe what I teach. I know what I do from the inside out so I pass it on with a knowing that is beyond the mere theory and application. My work reflects my lived experience and my lived experience is my work.

I have to say I am a very spiritual person. I am also a pragmatist. These two points of view may seem irreconcilable but I assure you, they are not. I have spent my life building bridges between what I was experiencing as warring opposites within myself and am dedicated to helping others do the same.

I was born into a family that was very loving and supportive while simultaneously being deeply and inherently divided. As a result I made an unconscious decision to work very hard not to shine too brightly in order to avoid experiencing pain and causing pain to others.

"Have you ever dimmed your light because you were afraid that if you let it shine either you would suffer or someone else would?"

I have been on a spiritual and personal growth all my life, strongly sensing that there is more here than meets the eye and so much healing that needed to happen in the world. On the other hand, while church-going, my parents were children of both the Great Depression and World War II. My father was a businessman and a retired Navy submarine commander. Both he and my mother had strong senses of duty and practicality. My inner healer and spiritual seeker felt embarrassed and out of place.

"Have you ever felt so out of place that you hid an “unacceptable” part of  yourself in order to fit in?"

Inside of this sense of duty, I studied Political Science in college. In retrospect I can see that part of me who wanted to help heal others and the world in my calling to enter Diplomatic Service (I thought I wanted to be Secretary of State). But at the time, I didn’t see that and ultimately I got scared of the part of me that yearned to be that powerful and I shoved it away, turning instead toward my spirituality and my calling to be a healer.

"Have you ever sensed the power in yourself and then turned from it because it scares you in some way?"

I didn’t see then what I see now. That I can shine as brightly as the sun and be a fierce stand for the shining of everyone I know and love. I can be a powerful woman and be a compassionate healer. And I can be a leader in my field and in my community and be a spiritual person. That I can teach a very practical and proven approach to healing that is not spiritual yet is imbued with spirituality.

Looking back over my life it is so clear that my mission here is to be weaver of dichotomies, a way-shower of navigating the way between seeming opposites to balance, grace and love.

"I am a fierce stand for you to have the love, work and life you desire and has felt just beyond your grasp…until now!"

Standing with and for you,

keren
