About My Clients
Are you curious about the whys behind behaviours you have had for a long time? Are you interested in diving deep into the psyche to get to know you at a soul level? Have you done some work with other therapists, or a coach perhaps, and still wonder how to more deeply decondition so that you can be more you and less of a pseudo-you? The time has come. I'm glad you are here. I work collaboratively with you to create an attuned approach to your care building on your strengths.
My Background and Approach
Trained in a multitude of approaches, I find that using techniques to integrate the mind and the body are best for long term healing and change. I am trained in psychoanalytic psychotherapy, somatic psychology, and holistic approaches such as yoga therapy and psychedelic integration. Beginning to understand yourself as an embodied being is a great first step to honoring your mind as an ally and living a more full life that has higher levels of satisfaction and inner harmony. I have traveled globally learning and studying with mentors and teachers to gain a deeper understanding of techniques and approaches, assimilating them into the work that I do, and witnessing transformation that is sustainable.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
I have worked extensively doing volunteer work with domestic violence shelters and LGBTQIA centers. I am passionate about equality and am doing my best to acknowledge my own biases and internalized racism. I work in individual therapy with sex workers and have run mindfulness groups for sex workers for over 15 years. I used to volunteer with St. James Infirmary in San Francisco, a non-profit offering overall health and wellness services for sex workers.
