My Background and Approach

The core of our work is relational – building safety and trust with each other while focusing on the relationship you build with yourself. In all we do, I emphasize relating to all parts of oneself with kindness. Building on that foundation, there is room for creativity and integration of various tools and approaches. This is your process, and it can be tailored to meet your needs. I like to collaborate with clients to find ways of integrating our work into their daily lives outside of sessions.

Why I Became a Therapist

My journey towards becoming a therapist began with mindfulness and music. My high school Jazz band was a safe space for me to express myself creatively, which was transformative at a time in my life when I was dealing with anxiety and the challenges of young adulthood. I was particularly inspired by our music teacher and his practice of Zen meditation, which he seemed to share by osmosis with his open-hearted presence. This experience sparked an ever-unfolding process of intentionally cultivating greater sensitivity and openness in myself. In pursuit of this, I designed my own undergraduate education that included Jazz, Buddhist Studies and Environmental Science. I dove more deeply into meditation practice, spending many hours in silent retreat and living at Buddhist centers in the US and Asia. I trained as a meditation instructor and taught mindfulness at universities and workplaces. I worked as a carpenter, urban gardener, and farmer, along with my yoga teacher training.
