My Approach to Helping

Healing and development are never a straight line. While acknowledging the mysterious and incredibly unique journey of each person, I, with my 17 years of experience in the field, quickly gain an accurate picture of what needs to be fostered in order to help you start -- and continue -- feeling better. From the moment of your free consultation, in your first session, and going forward, I will "listen" closely for how you are organized around healing and guide you forward by joining with your natural wisdom.

The array of therapeutic modalities, embodied mindfulness coaching, and creativity support I offer help me to meet you right where you are. You are not what has happened to you, but you are indeed importantly shaped by the past. You are also shaped by the limits of your imagination and the subtlety of your embodiment. I am firmly rooted in a strengths-based mindset: the truth is that we -- given the right conditions -- are naturally built to heal and grow. How I work reflects and animates this fact.

A poet, dancer, meditation teacher, and depth-oriented psychotherapist, I see that the sky is the limit for heartbodymind integration that will bring you greater peace, creativity, joy, or fulfillment.

Whether you're ready to thrive beyond surviving trauma; want to take the next big step in life but feel hesitant; or, even if you feel something is “off” but you’re not sure what it is, I hope you'll allow me to assist you as I have been lucky enough to assist many others. Even if you're not sure what you want from a therapist, teacher, or guide, you'll gain more information toward clarity just by reaching out. I look forward to hearing from you! The right clienttherapist match is important, so if I'm not the right fit for you -- no problem! I'll do my best to refer you to a trusted colleague with openings.

More Info About My Practice

My mission is to promote inspired living through expressive art therapies, somatic psychotherapy, and embodied mindfulness programs for adults of all ages.

Growth only happens in the here and now. The experiential therapies, coaching, and life enrichment services you find here spring from a foundation of embodied mindfulness. Rooted in wisdom traditions, this work --and play! -- begins with a kind, curious attitude.

Whether you’re in need of an evidence-based structure for trauma recovery or are ready to let your intuition lead the way in authentic movement, I’ll assist you in tapping into innate healing mechanisms. Natural intelligence that may be hard to discover on your own emerges here.
