Craig holds a BA in Communications from Pepperdine University and a MA in Counseling Psychology from the Institute of Transpersonal Psychology.

Craig’s approach to psychotherapy is transformative and holistic, with an emphasis on the integration of mind, body and spirit. He specializes in treating stress, anxiety and depression naturally by using a combination of talk therapy, mindfulness, meditation and somatic (body-oriented) therapy. Within this specialty he help clients to identify how diet, exercise and spiritual practice can improve health and well-being, and bring balance to our lives. Craig is a certified meditation teacher and trained in Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) and the Hakomi Method.

The foundation of Craig’s work is a therapeutic relationship that is built on trust, acceptance, understanding, and compassion. His approach is influenced by transpersonal and existential psychology which incorporates the spiritual dimension of ourselves and explores meaning and purpose in our lives. In your sessions with Craig, he will help you to identify and attain your goals, increase self-acceptance and self-compassion, bring awareness to unconscious patterns that are no longer serving you, develop coping skills to better face the challenges of your life and help you create more conscious and fulfilling relationships.
