My Approach to Helping

I am a somatic (mind-body) psychotherapist passionate about supporting you to generate to greater empowerment, fulfillment, and ease in your life. My approach is collaborative, rooted in compassion, mindfulness, and awareness. Through our work together, I support you to feel more resilient, alive and "at home" within yourself, even in the uncertainty of these times.

You may be searching for a therapist because of a past or ongoing trauma, an issue or challenge that you are facing, or because you are seeking a greater connection with yourself. I will guide you to slow down, listen in and heal what feels habitually detrimental, broken or stuck. In our sessions together, this looks like talking, sensing, moving and practicing new ways of being so that insights and revelations are reinforced and grounded in reality, in how you walk in the world.

More Info About My Practice

My background in social work, yoga and somatic (mind-body) psychology inform the way I work with you to attend to the ways you are holding and engaging yourself and within the broader context of your family, culture, community and society. Somatic psychotherapy offers an integrative approach to change where together we attend to your mental, emotional and embodied experience. Sometimes we are generating ease and sometimes we are creating tension. Either way, we are always practicing something and becoming aware of this is key to transforming and changing your experience.

I work with individuals, couples and youth ages 10-21 from all different backgrounds.

I hold a BA in Philosophy from Haverford College and an MA in Counseling Psychology from CIIS. I am a registered yoga teacher of 10+ years and engage in the formal somatic study of Formative Psychology. I have completed Phases I and II of UnTraining (examining white liberal racism) and incorporate additional trainings in art therapy, improv comedy, and trauma-informed modalities.
