I am a licensed psychotherapist, yoga teacher, dancer, student of mindfulness & embodiment practices, & a space holder for group process & sacred ceremony. I am passionate about bringing embodied movement & sacred space to life experiences to support people & couples in processing the deepest parts of life. I bring mindfulness & embodiment into therapy to support deeper intuition & integration- these practices are adaptable to any level of ability & interest. My MISSION: to offer personally meaningful, empowering, & compassionate counseling to support you in honoring your life experience. My VISION: to connect people to the deepest parts of themselves, each other, & the world around us.

I have experience supporting people experiencing trauma, anxiety, depression, psychosis, & identity, existential, & relationship challenges. My work is informed by holistic approaches including: embodied awareness, internal family systems, cognitive behavioral therapy, positive psychology, radical acceptance, & neurodevelopmental theories of trauma. I focus on the whole person & the multi-dimensional aspects of Self.

I strive to create a safe environment for self-exploration at one's own pace. My approach is anti-oppressive & celebrates each individual's unique expression of identity. Any topic, taboo, or experience is welcome. I have experience supporting people in exploring their sexuality & uncovering blocks to intimacy & self-expression.
