NOTE: I am currently only seeing clients vis Telehealth due to COVID precautions. I provide a compassionate, collaborative approach to therapy, whether it be for depression, anxiety, trauma, relationship or parenting issues, or what has brought you to seek help. My practice involves tailoring the method to fit the client, in order to strengthen your resources and create the changes you are longing for. I believe that every person's journey through life is unique, but not without struggle, and am committed to helping you feel safe, engaged, and above all, to be a dedicated partner in navigating your healing process.
In conjunction with traditional verbal therapy, I bring the option of integrating a somatic approach in order to deepen the therapeutic experience. Through this process, we explore the function of the body in emotional healing, as informed by my 30 years of mind-body practice (yoga, dance, mindfulness, and qi gong).
I am experienced in working with individuals, couples, and parents from a wide range of backgrounds and issues, including veterans, individuals with disabilities and their family members, and people of all sexual orientations.
