and Neurofeedback to integrate treatment for mind and body
Sacral Therapy Interactive Metronome|
I was influenced by Gandhi when I was in high school in Sri Lanka.
Non-violence has been the major theme of my life. Then I was influenced by
the works of Krishnamurti. His influence became much deeper and wider.
I became a nurse and in the early 1980's went into psychiatric nursing. I
was fascinated by gestalt therapy and psychodrama. I was in a gestalt
therapy group for 6 months. I also attended a few workshops with the late
Dr. Fine, on psychodrama.
While working as a psychiatric nurse in the VA hospital I had the
opportunity to work with lots of PTSD clients from Vietnam and World War
Two, and attended special training sessions for working with PTSD.
At the same time I did work with a psychiatrist who was influenced by the
Bateson team at Palo Alto Mental Health Clinic. We used to do a self help
group for many years using "Brief Therapy". I got trained in hypnosis and
attended as many workshops as I could with Jay Haley, Cloe Madison, Ernest
Rossi, Watsalwick, Steven Gilligan, Camillo Loriedo. I was also trained at
the family institute with Neil Babcock in Family Therapy.

In the mid 1990's, I became familiar with Neurofeedback, then trained and got certified. In the late
1990's I was enticed by body work and was trained through the Upledger's Institute in five levels of
Cranial Sacral Therapy. I also did my graduate work in mental health to become a psychiatric nurse
practitioner with prescriptive privileges. My approach is to integrate mind and body using a variety of
modalities and technologies.
The bottom line is that I like to learn, and my life is a learning process. When I work with people I share
that 'learning process' whatever the different modalities may be, both my education and experience.
