About My Clients

I have experience and enjoy working with people from diverse backgrounds, including: artists, LGBTQ+, young adults, second-generation folks, and nature-lovers. Individuals contending with ecological grief or distress and those wishing to integrate transcendent experiences also tend to be a good match. I work inclusively with all relationship orientations, including non-monogamous.

My Background and Approach

I have an open, exploratory style that eases connection and brings awareness to your sensations, emotions, dreams, and complexities. Our work will create space for you to reimagine repetitive patterns and more fully embody the whole of who you are. My integrative approach is grounded in psychoanalytic and Jungian traditions and weaves in Somatic Experiencing®, a body-centered method. These pieces blend uniquely for each person and we will collaborate to discover what works best for you. I also have training in spiritual and ecopsychology to support exploration of your relationship to culture, belief, legacy, and the natural world.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe in honoring complexity and embracing the paradoxical parts of people that make them interesting and whole. I believe symptoms are patterns of communication calling for compassion and attentiveness, not management and pathologization. I am committed to racial justice, sexual freedom, equitable distribution, and ecological sustainability.
