Marriage & Family Therapist, MA, LMFT, RMBP, SEP
Coming from a holistic, mind-body, humanistic, compassionate perspective, I work with clients who desire to improve the quality of their lives, reducing stress and emotional pain. Clients may suffer from loneliness, depression, low self-esteem, anxiety or loss. They may need help with communication awareness, grounding methods, self-care, sexual fulfillment or life purpose. These conditions are more normal than abnormal, while sometimes feeling overwhelming. I invite clients to listen to and trust their innate wisdom, guiding them to identify and move through the obstacles preventing them from living their life to the fullest.
My integral psychology background and ongoing training draws from several talk and process-oriented, experiential, somatic modalities including Gestalt, the Hakomi Method (hakomica.org), Somatic Experiencing (traumahealing.org) body-oriented approach to healing trauma/stress, and Rosen Method Bodywork (rosenmethod.com), hands on mind-body awareness.
By slowing down in a safe environment and becoming more aware of being present, clients often experience increased aliveness and ease in their body, while accessing more of their inner truth. My approach is influenced by my personal mindfulness, contemplative, yoga and interspiritual practices. If this resonates with you, contact me to learn more!
