I'm a licensed psychologist and I recently left my work in community mental health working with severely mentally ill people. Im totally stoked about my fancy new job at Kaiser. I worked there for a year before I got my license and I loved it. I'm mostly working on their chemical dependency team, but I get to see all kinds of patients. People tend to find my work either fascinating, or weird and unappealing. I can totally understand either reaction, but my healing work is one of my biggest passions in life, so I'm obviously looking for someone who can appreciate what therapists do.
I should say that I recently temporarily moved to Castro valley to be a little closer to my new job. I say temporarily because I already miss Oakland and I am thinking I might move back before the end of the year.
My spirituality is an important part of my life. I like to study all manner of traditions and philosophies that seem interesting, even if I don't actually believe in them. Every tradition I encounter speaks something of the human soul. I like to explore ideas and practices that seem like they will bring more fullness into my being. I enjoy connecting with people from all backgrounds, as long as they are open and accepting. I have no tolerance for religious intolerance, so if you think you know what the "truth" is, don't waste your time with me. I tend to connect particularly well with people whose spiritual paths have lead them to a deep care for themselves, other people and social justice.
I'm good at inspiring people to feel hopeful and optimistic - not in a sappy, sentimental way, but in a real way.
Asking questions and listening REALLY hard to what people say (at least when I'm interested).
I'm pretty sweet on my guitar these days.
I'm also good at enjoying things even though I'm not very good at them... a few recent examples have been playing drums, dancing and surfing.
People also notice that I'm really tall, but I like to pretend I don't know what they are talking about. Its fun.
