I draw from feminist and somatic approaches, using mindfulness to help you reconnect with your centered-self, those around you, and broader structures of support and thriving. You can expect a safe and nonjudgmental space - I strive to incorporate anti-oppressive frameworks into my practice, attending to social and cultural contexts. I believe that many challenges are related to structural violence and that we hold this trauma in our bodies. I enjoy helping clients tune into their embodied experience to release pain and find understanding.
I hold a Masters degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Portland State University where my coursework centered around multicultural and justice issues. I have additional training as a yoga instructor, embracing the mind-body connection. And as a birth doula, working with folks during pregnancy, birth, and postpartum transitions.
