Holistic Law Counseling Program

Holistic Law CounselingAs a complement to our more traditional law and mediation services, I offer a unique five-session holistic law counseling program.  If you are struggling for clarity in deciding whether or how to proceed with formal legal action, I offer the five-session program outlined below.

When I began seeing Michael, I was emotionally distraught and conflicted about how to proceed with my divorce, which had been a nightmare in progress for almost a year. I found Michael’s holistic, therapeutic approach instrumental in moving me through self-imposed barriers brought on by fear and anxiety. He reminded me that I could gain better clarity and peace of mind by spending even just a few minutes a day in quiet meditation, which I continue to do. Guided meditations for mindfulness were a very helpful part of the process he offered during our appointments. Through therapeutic communication, I felt safe and supported voicing my fears about moving forward with my divorce and Michael was able to help me identify exactly what I needed to get out of my own way and move forward.  K.P., Pinole, California

Ideally, you will work with me in these holistic law sessions before coming up with a concrete strategy to deal with your legal issues.  By cultivating this improved clarity of your situation, we will be more likely to arrive at, and implement, an optimal legal strategy.

Please note, if you decide to proceed with these holistic law counseling sessions before formally retaining me as your attorney, the holistic law counseling fee will be applied to legal fees going forward.  So, essentially, the holistic law counseling sessions are included in the cost of representation.

General Holistic Law Counseling Program Structure


Session 1

In our initial meeting we will discuss your legal issues in the context of your current life situation, e.g., your home environment, work life, as well as your more broad circle of familial and social relationships.  We will begin to identify reactive tendencies that may be clouding optimal judgment at this point in time.

Sessions 2 and 3

In our second and third sessions, you will be provided with an introduction to “mindfulness” – understood as a heightened awareness of your present-moment experience. This awareness may be obtained through somatic attention to the breath, seated posture, contact with the floor, sounds in the environment, etc. In coming to more fully connect to your present-moment experience, you begin to move beyond learned conditioning and reactive thoughts and behaviors, and toward a more optimal approach to the situation(s) you are facing.

Session 4

Having begun to appreciate the freedom offered by simple mindful attention to present experience, we begin to further explore past thoughts and conditioned reactions to these thoughts that may have contributed to your current difficulties. While we look at these thoughts, we return to present-moment awareness in a way that further instills a foundational appreciation that you need not be defined by, nor have your behavior automatically spring from, your conditioned thinking.

Session 5

In our fifth session, we build on your foundation of present-moment awareness in defining a future plan of action to concretely address your current challenges. By committing to this plan, you will continuously enhance your ability to access inner peace and become far less reactive to challenging life situations.
