Somatic Psychotherapy

Using the Wisdom of the Body to Facilitate Healing and Connection

About Me

My strong background in science, psychology, and movement arts led me to the study of holistic healing. I received my masters of arts in Counseling Psychology from the California Institute of Integral Studies and completed my clinical training at the Center for Somatic Psychotherapy in San Francisco. 

I pull from a variety of modalities in order to provide a diversity of approaches. Everyone's needs are different, and therefore I do not inherently privilege one modality over another; for one person simply being in conversation may stretch them in all the right ways, whereas for another we might engage in therapeutic explorations using elements from Tai Chi, yoga, or dance. The ancient arts that I offer are informed by contemporary fields of evolutionary psychology and the neurobiology of trauma.

I am committed to providing a safe, trauma-informed, sex-positive, body-positive, LGBTQ+ friendly, and social justice-oriented practice.

Individual Therapy

What is it that you desire? Are you looking for greater self-awareness, more rewarding relationships, resolution of difficulties from your past? With gentle curiosity we can help you learn new ways to access your authentic strength, tenderness, resilience, and pleasure.

Partner(s) Therapy

Whether you are a couple or a moresome, relationships can be supremely challenging. Partner therapy is a compassionate, nonjudgemental space where we can deepen into trust and connection to explore what may be holding you back from having the relationship you want. 

Family Therapy

Most of us know what it's like to get stuck in patterns or dynamics that aren't serving us - and this is especially true in family systems. However, we don't just have to work with what we're given. Let's get creative in creating new paradigms, ones that we choose to mindfully build with one another.
