"Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing there is a field. I'll meet you there."




paul elia, mft

Mental health is more of a journey than a destination. It is a process of inquiring into and attending to your inner-life and its cause and effect relationship with your outer presence and life circumstances. Like a mountain path, not every step is easy, but rewards can be rich.


As a therapist, I will meet you wherever you are on your path with openness, deep listening, and discerning inquiry, walking with you on your journey back home to yourself. 


I use a blend of therapeutic approaches, including mindfulness, positive psychology, contemplative psychology, transpersonal psychology, and insights from neuroscience as a way to unearth what is getting in your way of living a life you love. I will provide you with tools to cultivate your return to a sense of wholeness and well-being, whether in your relationship with yourself, others, or life in general.

Counseling for individuals, couples, and families in the art and practice of being fully human.
