My Approach to Helping
Welcome. If you have found your way here, it is likely that you are struggling with some area of your life and are looking for support. You may feel stuck in the same old patterns that aren't working, feel bogged down by past experiences that still cause you pain, or maybe you are looking to create a more fulfilling life. My passion and gift is supporting others in the healing, growth, development, and awakening process. I offer wholistic psychotherapy, focusing on supporting you in your body, mind, emotions, and spirit.
My practice is located on beautiful land, where we have fruits & veggies, farm animals, and a wellness center.
I offer transpersonal, somatic (body-centered), mindfulness-based therapy. I primarily use two modalities- Hakomi Psychotherapy and EMDR- and I bring many more skills and training to support you. I believe that you are the ultimate expert on yourself. Knowing this, I will work closely with you in a co-creative process to learn about what works best for you. Each session is spontaneous and creative, allowing whatever is alive in you in that moment to arise. I use many different approaches to help my clients heal and embody their truest, fullest selves.
I am a registered psychotherapist and graduated from Naropa University with a Master's degree in Transpersonal Counseling Psychology. I have certifications or training in yoga, mindfulness meditation, reiki, and others. I incorporate tools from Hakomi, EMDR, Gestalt, Mindfulness-based practices, Transpersonal Psychology, and more.
Everyone experiences suffering and pain. And, we all contain everything we need to heal. My role is to be a guide and help you uncover your internal wisdom, vitality, and wholeness. I view my clients through a compassionate lens, bringing loving-kindness, curiosity, honesty, humor, and acceptance.
My practice is located at Pachamama Farm and Wellness, a beautiful farm just outside of Boulder. Surrounded by stunning views of the Foothills, fields of organically grown vegetables and fruit, joyfully roaming animals, and a medicinal herb garden, my office is an ideal place to heal. The wellness center also offers acupuncture and herbal medicine resources. We provide integrative healing that addresses your physical, mental, emotional, energetic, and spiritual needs.
More Info About My Practice
I offer sessions that last anywhere from 55-minutes to 85-minutes depending on your needs. I do not work with insurance, but I can offer a superbill as an out of network provider so that you may possibly be reimbursed. In addition, I offer sliding scale fees and work with each client individually to determine a sustainable fee.
I offer a complimentary twenty-minute consultation so that you can get to know more about how I work, who I am, fees, and anything you would like to discuss. This is a great opportunity to see if I am the right fit for you.

What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist
I feel so lucky that I get to do work that I love. I am in constant awe of the brilliance, beauty, and strength of the human spirit.
I see myself as a guide through the thresholds of change. I enjoy walking through the unknown with my clients as they discover, reclaim, integrate, or transform both theirselves and their lives.
I am honored to be a witness to all parts of another, to be able to reflect back their truth, and offer unconditional compassion. I am honored to sit with others in both their suffering and their joy.
I aspire to empower my clients to heal, cultivating self-love and a fulfilling life.
My View on the Nature of 'Disorders'
I believe that everything we do comes from an initially healthy impulse. We may want to feel better, get out of our pain, find connectionintimacy, nourish the places where we feel empty, etc. These are all healthy impulses. The way we try to fill these basic needs may be hurting us or someone else. Basically, these attempts are not working.
I believe it is important to look at what is not working and causing suffering. I support my clients to inquire whether the particular pattern, habit, belief, etc is supporting or deterring from their growth and wellness. Is it life-enhancing or life-detracting?
Many of our patterns, beliefs, wounds, etc come from previous experiences that have shaped us. I believe it is important to safely delve into whatever emotion, memory, or belief is stuck in order to move through it and release it. A lot of this work is done through present-moment inquiry, body-based practices, mindfulness techniques, and internal parts work, all with the foundation of a strong and trustworthy therapeutic relationship.
