What makes me a healer?

Professional

I am a professional therapist; this is how I make a living and provide for my family. Being a professional requires a steadfast effort to maintain a high level of excellence and to provide the highest level of service possible. It is an attitude, a mindset, and not just my job. Being a healer is what I do, it is who I am; it requires of me a high level of integrity and commitment.

Humor

I would be doomed without my sense of humor. Please know that I take your situation and your suffering very seriously. And, wherever appropriate, I inject lightness, fun, and humor. Laughter is a magical and mysterious healing elixir; it just plain works in wonderful and amazing ways.

Touch

Human touch is a wondrous and remarkable clinical tool. I’ve spent decades cultivating and refining my touch skills. While not applicable in every case, there are times when skillful touch is absolutely magical and can help resolve even the most challenging conditions.

friendly

I like people. All y’all are fascinating and complex and marvelous. I never feel bored when working with human beings. Being naturally friendly and enjoying the company of people, even when they are hurting, is enormously helpful in this line of work. Throughout the day, my motto is “to be of good cheer.

listening

We all love a good story. However, when you are suffering, it’s often a huge relief to find a good listener. Here is my great, ongoing, and delightful challenge: How deeply and clearly can I listen to your story, the tale of your need, your situation, your suffering? How many levels and layers can I hear? Can I hear your living history as it emerges into your current story? When I can truly hear you, the treatment plan reveals itself in brilliant clarity.

Compassion

It’s taken me a long, long time to learn to wield compassion in the clinical setting. Compassion and kindness are the ”big guns” in my therapeutic toolkit. Even though “how” they work is shrouded in mystery, there is no question that compassion and kindness work wonders on a daily basis.

Perception

Sometimes the key that unlocks the therapeutic puzzle is found in my ability to perceive clearly and deeply, to penetrate to the heart of the matter. Once the causal forces are perceived, the course of treatment emerges into full clarity.

Stillness

My ability to access stillness is a cornerstone of my practice. The deepest experiences of healing emerge out of the stillness at the core of our beings. An integral part of my work is helping my clients have a direct relationship with their own stillness. At this point of my career much of my professional development work involves deepening and cultivating my capacity for stillness.

Some pictures didn’t make the cut for the “official” website, but were too fun not to share.  These photos show a different, goofier side than the formal pics.  Enjoy!

  • "Over the last 15 years, I have returned for literally hundreds of sessions with Doug.  Even when I was a very poor single parent, working, graduate student, I dutifully set aside nearly 20% of my income each month so my son and I could see Doug.  I'm not a therapy junkie, I simply couldn't afford that. But, I know...

  • “If you are struggling with the side effects from anesthesia, I’d tell you to go see Doug immediately.  I want other people to know that there is an answer for what is going on with them.  They probably feel helpless and don’t know what’s happening.  There is no doubt that Doug helped me find my way back into my ow...
