About My Clients

I have special experience in working with people that are healing complex physical, sexual and/or emotional trauma. Many of my clients identify as women, trans, femme or non-binary as well as multi-cultural, immigrants or children of immigrants. I also work with people for whom traditional talk therapy has not been successful, and who want to try something new, nonverbal, somatic or psychedelic.

My Background and Approach

My style is honest, transparent and supportive. I have a background in early childhood, feminist studies, art and yoga. I am also certified in Psychedelic Assisted Therapy and Integration, Brainspotting and SandPlay therapy. Clients of mine have said I am warm and non-judgmental. I am interested in social, economic & ecological justice, perinatal and maternal mental health and the cross between spiritual, somatic, intuitive and imaginative healing. I also love working with dreams, creativity and other altered stated of consciousness.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I identify as a mother, and my pronouns are she/they/we. I am a gardener and land steward, a partner and a bit witchy. I am passionate about learning, regenerative agriculture & traditional cultural practices, scavenging, and handwork. I practice humility and just pleasure. I was a victim of sexual abuse, and found healing through psychotherapy, psychedelics, dreams, somatic experiencing, the earth, herbs and spiritual practice and in community.
