Accepting Clients

I am an integrative somatic therapist. I believe deeply that healing is a path of welcoming and including all parts of ourselves.

Associate Marriage & Family Therapist in Walnut Creek, CA

About My Clients

I approach the process of therapy with the deepest respect for the inherent wholeness and dignity of every individual I have the privilege to work with. I will support you in addressing the challenges of chronic stress and the painful effects of trauma while holding the conviction that your capacity for connection, peace, and aliveness is your birthright. I will accompany you as you begin to find your way back to a truer, more vital and clear sense of who you are and what is important to you.

My Background and Approach

In our work together, we will collaborate in exploring beliefs and patterns of behavior you may have taken on a long time ago and will look at how they show up in your life today. As a somatic therapist, I will listen for the cues of your nervous system and will support you in developing skills and having tools to help you reclaim calm, confidence, and strength. The main models I use are: Internal Family Systems (IFS) - working with inner parts toward harmonizing the mind; Somatic Experiencing - a somatic trauma resolution approach; and Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy (AEDP) - a relational model of psychotherapy. I am a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner and am IFS Level 3-trained. I have completed couples therapy trainings in Intimacy from the Inside Out (IFS for couples) and the Developmental Model of Couples Therapy. In addition to my graduate degree in Counseling, I hold a Master's Degree in Positive Psychology and work from a strengths-based orientation.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

The focus of my work is somatic and experiential, grounded in the understanding of how the body and nervous system respond to overwhelming experience and the pathways back to presence, calm and aliveness.

I offer online counseling in the following states:
