My Approach to Helping

All right, so you've done therapy before. You've done meditation and other practices. You've gained insight about your life and family of origin... BUT you still don't feel aligned with your body and soul. Your body still feels heavy. Your career, relationships, spirituality still feel off. You feel restless and dissatisfied.

I use a nervous system approach to help you get in touch with your body and heal from your past in a way that is gentle, paced, and compassionate and moves beyond intellectual understanding. The hope is to help you increase presence, pleasure, productivity, inner freedom, and satisfying relationships with others and yourself without retraumatization of the past. As we move toward curiosity, ease, self-compassion, and joy, you may feel empowered to make choices from your deepest, truest, most embodied self. You may feel more aligned & clear. This is NOT a promise to not suffer, it's finding a better way to relate to human suffering that's inevitable (never buy the lie that therapy will take all psychological pain away-- it won't).

I am an Organic Intelligence Practitioner (OIP). OI is a theory and clinical practice of human empowerment, resiliency, and compassion to resolve the devastating effects of stress, trauma, and posttraumatic stress (PTSD). It is a somatic-informed approach, one that uses the understanding of the nervous system to move toward your goals.

Unlike traditional talk therapy, my hope is to help guide you away from focusing only on "what's wrong" and help reorganize your nervous system to reduce stress and lean into a life that's more satisfying, more joyful, and more complex. Unlike other somatic (body)-focused therapies, I also don't exclusively "intervene" in an explicitly "body" way either. I look at your goals using a framework that's interested in integrating all of these elements of I-S-O-M-A: your IMAGES (memories, dreams, etc), SENSATIONS (internal experience of body), ORIENTATION (ability to be in the present moment), MEANING (thoughts, cognitions), and AFFECT (emotions, moods, etc). Each of these elements are unique and important parts of our experience-- to overly emphasize one is to neglect the others, which can impede our goals for wellness.

I have my own private practice in a beautiful, bright office in Hillcrest, click the link to preview my website for more information.

More Info About My Practice

It was my own therapy transformation that ultimately drove me to this profession, and it was my own stuckness in therapy that drove me to the modality I use that's nervous system oriented. I know what it's like to suffer- trauma, panic, anxiety, loneliness, dissatisfying relationships. And while therapy can't resolve all human suffering, it certainly can help us relate to it differently, to find more ease, comfort, companionship. It's a powerful thing to allow another human to witness the most vulnerable parts and to help walk us through the depths, and to find hope in a more satisfying life, which is usually full of paradox, nuance, and complexity. I've done this work myself, and continue to do it, because it makes me better equipped, more present, and more tuned into what my client specifically needs to live the life they most deeply want. After all, how would I be able to help clients go to places I've never gone to myself?

My Therapy Focus

If you've done quite a bit of therapy and it feels like you've gotten all the insight you think you can but life still feels dissatisfying or off, we may work well together. You've got emotional intelligence, insight, awareness of your family or origin story but you want to move beyond that to a place of compassion for your past and moving intentionally toward your future? Let's talk. Telling & processing our life narrative is important and sometimes moving beyond the narrative is what's actually needed.

What I Usually Need to Know to Help

What do you want? If this process worked for you, how would your life look different a couple years from now? How has your previous therapy or other explorations impacted you? What brings you joy now? What do you think is missing?

Groups I Work With

    I help people who've done a lot of inner work but still may feel disconnected from their body and seek to deepen their journey toward wholeness. This often means other therapists, healers, coaches. I best help people wanting to:
    - connect more deeply to their intuition, body, and heart
    - distinguish past conditioning from true instinct
    - feel into the body, not just by talking about it
    - integrate their "trauma story" in a more compassionate, nuanced way for others involved
    - find ease, joy, and depth of pleasure
    - make sense of relationship patterns, including radical self-responsibility
    - find more complexity & satisfaction in relationships
