A fully expressed life emerges when we connect with our innate resilience and become who we are meant to be. We have more energy, feel inspired, connect more deeply, and experience the natural ebb and flow of life with greater ease. Whether you have done psychotherapy before, or are brand new, I am here to help. I offer a beautiful, unique approach to healing, one that brings together teachings from Western psychology and Eastern wisdom traditions. Complete healing comes from mindful awareness of the whole self, and working from a place of embodied connection with our true, genuine essence.

I strongly believe that the most healing aspect of therapy is directly related to the safe connection with the therapist. Trainings inform the therapy but only feeling safe and seen will provide the ground for deep exploration and emergence of the new... almost like a birthing process. Client based, my style is warm, compassionate, nonetheless, assertive. Experience and various trainings keep supporting the importance of breath, grounded presence and mindfulness in any therapeutic setting and healing/life process. Therefore, those are central to my work. My sessions combines several psychotherapy approaches together with various somatic practices such as bioenergetics, movement, mindfulness & trauma work.

As a psychotherapist, I feel it’s an honor to be a witness and facilitator to client transformation, resilience, and growth. I believe my perceptiveness, compassion, and holding of a nonjudgmental space allow discovery and observation of patterns that may no longer be helpful. I see my work through a social justice perspective and understand oppression itself as a form of stress and trauma. As a mixed-race, multicultural woman, I honor experiences of being at different intersections of identity. I can relate to experiences of simultaneously belonging and not belonging in different spaces.
