I assist adults and couples with relationship difficulties, parenting, personal and professional life transitions, anxiety/depression, and loss. I use a combination of mindfulness, somatic and depth therapies to help clients develop greater self compassion and Love as the basis for meaningful living. When we feel misaligned with our core self, as a natural result of a life lived through the eyes of others, we can lose our sense of creative purpose. If connectedness to self and others lacks robustness, life can feel very unsatisfactory.

I provide attachment-based, mindfulness- somatic counseling for adult & adolescent individuals seeking weekly therapy sessions. I believe change happens through the healing relationship, as we collaborate to navigate difficult relationships, manage states of anxiety, and transcend suffering and trauma. This therapy is particularly effective for folks who feel constantly overwhelmed and anxious and/or they need to process traumatic experiences. Mindfulness- somatic interventions can help clients safely explore limiting core beliefs and thinking patterns, reduce anxiety, recover from traumatic experiences, and increase self-compassion.

I completed my internship at META Counseling Clinic during which I received training in a wholistic, somatic , mindfulness-based therapy called Hakomi as well Primary Attachment Psychotherapy.
I believe that through our journey of life we can become distanced from our innate sense of wholeness when we encounter challenges. I hope to help clients access the capacity for healing and growth by mindfully studying and loosening protections that may have developed to get survive and get by. This often involves a strong focus on present moment experience so that we may work with the actual felt sense of what is limiting and eventually begin experimenting with new ways of being.

My work is experiential, somatic and uses mindful awareness to help create transformation in your life.
I see my job as helping you reconnect to and live from your inner truth. Do you feel you have been living in ways that feel like "not the real me"? Together we can uncover and validate what makes sense about unwanted behaviors and find the important impulse that lives underneath. I believe we each have wisdom inside that gets covered over with protective strategies, like the sun behind the clouds. I work with individuals and couples to facilitate reconnection to the heart of self and others.

I believe "kids do well if they can." I want to help you and the people in your life figure out what you need to do well. Using person-centered, mindfulness and somatic based, and Collaborative Problem Solving strategies, I've also helped adults find success, since so much of therapy is about patterns formed in childhood for anyone. Creating a space for healing and growth, finding humor in the hard, making connections for healing through healthy relationships gives you opportunities to move past trauma and feelings of overwhelm, anxiety or sadness. There is so much hope for you.

Please note: Sorry, I am not currently accepting new patients. I work primarily with people who are interested in a somatic (body-oriented) mindfulness approach that can help free them from remaining stuck in old, repetitive patterns. I especially enjoy working with individuals who have experienced "outsider status" in their family of origin or the larger world and are on a rich journey to create a sense of belonging in their own way and style. Many of my patients are creatives who experience hindrances in their ability to connect with their creative energies or work and seek ways to more fully honor these aspects of themselves.

My approach to therapy is collaborative and strengths based, and rooted in anti-racism and anti-oppression. I see therapy as a place for you to build and reclaim your power, nourishing your strengths, needs, vision and contributions, and tending with care to your pain or challenges. I use many approaches: narrative, solution-focused, EFT with couples, transpersonal approaches, & the arts. I have a trauma-informed lens, guided by your choices, experience and lifestyle as the compass for our work. I also bring a neuroscience lens, with somatic strategies for restoring our nervous system with care, through anxiety, grief or trauma.

Many of us want the same things: to feel safe, to love and be loved, to be seen, heard and supported, and to be at home in our bodies. However, being a human is complicated, and when presented with more than is manageable, our bodies' innate intelligence takes over and holds onto tough experiences for us. This is where somatic psychotherapy can help.

My approach draws from mindfulness, somatic inquiry, and brain savvy tools to help folks lead from a place of resilience and resourcefulness.
Experiencing discomfort, pain, fear, sadness, and anger is part of life, and so is the courage and tenderness to grow and change. Seeking autonomy and belonging in our relationship to our selves and others can often be met with challenges- (building) blocks that hold their own wisdom. I welcome folks from all walks of life and social locations into my practice. I specialize in transnationals: expats, mixed- citizenship status couples/families, "home" seekers, and those straddling many cultures.
