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. My associateship was completed under the auspices of Grateful Heart Holistic Therapy.
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.

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.
