My Approach to Helping
I'm an integrative therapist, drawing from sociology, anthropology, social justice activism, East-West spirituality, and transpersonal science.
My primary goal is to help raise your emotional intelligence and self awareness -- and for many, this results in less anxiety and worry, less reactive anger and compulsive behaviors, and, generally, more peace. I serve teens-to-40-somethings in California, working thru relationship challenges, work-life balance, career changes, spiritual growth, growing pains and adjustments to new phases of life, and challenges in their household or family dynamics.

My job is create and hold a space where you can be you -- so that when the timing and circumstances are right, we can let go of what doesn't serve you, and hold onto and nurture the rest.
