About My Clients

You feel deeply concerned about the state of our world and prioritize helping others as much as you can. You are a strong, competent person who is successful in life. Yet inside you often feel lonely, afraid or “not enough.” You have built some good connections with people, but when you are alone you find it hard to feel your own feelings, or you feel so much you become overwhelmed. You have a sense that something is missing, but you aren’t sure what.

My Background and Approach

As a therapist, my goal is to collaborate with you and to walk alongside you on the path toward aligning your life with what you most care about. I believe each of us has our own inherent wisdom and natural inclination toward wellness. Life circumstances, experiences, trauma and social oppression disrupt our sense of dignity, belonging and safety and creates "static" that distracts us from our inherent basic goodness and aliveness. In sessions, you will be able to set the pace and decide the focus. Then, together we will explore what is happening in the present moment, using attention to mind, body and spirit toward more awareness, embodiment, healing and transformation. ​Somatic Bodywork & Somatic practices will be offered to you as they are profoundly effective modalities to support more rooted, long-lasting change in a way that talk therapy is not able to.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I am a therapist who sees deep connections between our personal healing and the healing of society. I help those who help others by providing practical tools and experiences to create change that lasts. You will feel more in tune with your own feelings & needs, more confident in what you want, and be better able to stay focused on your commitments even when life is hard. You will feel more energized and clear about your contribution to social healing, and move from guilt/shame into grounded, connected action.
