My Approach to Helping

I am a Certified Hakomi Therapist, Teacher and Trainer. I teach and practice mindfulnessawareness - the practice of compassionate presence. This somatic approach of tracking thoughts, emotions, sensations and memories leads to a spacious relaxing of the body and calming of the mind. I believe everyone has a core compassionate and wise center. Here we are able to hold our experiences with an attitude of curiosity, calmness and clarity. Therapy can help access this center. Together we can gently liberate a more confident, connected clear and calm you.

More Info About My Practice

At the first session, I will share my therapy philosophy, background and an agreement on confidentiality. Your sense of comfort and safety is important to me. All questions are welcome at anytime. I have offices in North Tacoma, Steilacoom and Olympia, WA. Contact me for a complimentary 15 minute telephone consultation to begin the process of getting to know one another.
