About My Clients

Maybe you’ve experienced distress in relationships or feel out of balance, depressed, or anxious. Despite your suffering, chances are you are a very resilient and creative human being. You have had to strategically adapt to life’s traumas and challenges, perhaps in ways you are not even aware of, and now you want to invite greater freedom, connection, and joy into your life. If that rings true for you, know that I am here to help you re-connect to your innate wisdom and resourcefulness.

My Background and Approach

My approach to this work starts with getting to know you in a holistic way. I might start a session by inviting you to briefly identify key issues to focus on. Without losing contact with those issues, I’ll invite you to bring primary attention to your present moment experience, starting with perception of the physical environment and internal or external body sensations, later integrating emotions, images, thoughts and memories. I have a master’s degree (3-year) in clinical mental health counseling and am trained in Hakomi psychotherapy (an additional 2-year comprehensive training), a pioneering approach to using mindfulness and somatic integration to undertake what is often very meaningful and impactful work for clients. To expand my expertise, I am a current student in the 3-year Somatic Experiencing® (SE) Practitioner training program with senior instructor Joshua Sylvae, PhD, SEP, and I am working one on one with Suzie Wolfer, LCSW, SEP as my clinical supervisor.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that truth is more easily found at the margins of any system, more easily found at the bottom than at the top, and that those who at first appear to be weak and powerless often show themselves as the most resilient, brave, and powerful of all. I believe that what often holds us back the most is actually the fear of how our familiar lives might change if we were to really allow our true power, wisdom, and full potential to guide and animate our lives. I believe, in the words of Leonard Cohen, that “there is a crack, a crack in everything, that's how the light gets in”.
