Daniel MerchantBuddhism teaches that the essence of who we are is perfect. We come into this world with this perfection and an instinct to create and flourish. This is the source of our pure potential. After many years as a psychotherapist, I have found that we have the ability to heal ourselves when we are connected to this source. Life too often with its demands and difficulties causes us to lose our connection with this core wholeness. Our past obstructs our way. Our history becomes our prison.

    In Individual Psychotherapy and EMDR Therapy, I assist my clients in resolving the old patterns, stories, and feelings that have blocked their ability to engage their life fully, and to help them reconnect with the pure potential with which they were born, the source of possibility within.

    As an Imago Relationship Therapist, I assist couples in developing empathy and understanding for each other and to identify defeating patterns of behavior. In time, each partner learns new loving ways of being with the other and new ways of getting their needs met. Finally, each partner learns how to support the other’s reconnecting with his or her original core wholeness.

    As the facilitator of two workshops, Imagination: The Healer Within and Ritual Dance, I assist participants in accessing and evoking the images of their imagination and engaging with them for the wisdom and healing potential they contain. Imagination is the means by which we can know and communicate with our deepest selves.
