I take an integrative, holistic perspective to counseling that recognizes the whole person: body, mind, expression, soul. I practice therapy primarily through the lens of dance/movement therapy, somatics, and expressive arts therapy. I am heavily influenced by neuroscience, attachment theory, feminist therapy and anti-oppressive practice. I utilize mindfulness, movement, expression and other tools to support your therapeutic process. Ultimately I am most informed by each client’s needs and processes. I view therapy as a collaborative experience and think of myself as a facilitator, holding space for what arises. I come to therapy with an empathic, attuned ear and body. I listen deeply with acceptance, patience, and awareness. I have a background in massage therapy, conscious dance leadership, and somatic self-research. I also have studied yoga and yoga therapy. Primarily what I bring from all my studies and background is a tender curiosity, openness, and presence.
