I offer my clients a compassionate and engaged presence. I also bring the belief that therapy is most effective when it is a positive experience.
My training in Psycho-Physical Therapy, which is a resource-based model that uses physical adjustments as a key part of therapy, is central to my work. In addition to traditional Somatic Psychotherapy, CORE Energetics is the other primary influence in my practice. I also draw on the Hakomi Method, that is a gentle and experiential process. I am a long-time student of Yoga and a certified Reiki Master. My study of traditional healing modalities, such as Ayurveda and Chinese Medicine, additionally influence how I live and how I approach this work.
I am a licensed Mental Health Counselor Associate (MC 60712828) with the state of Washington. I have a Master’s Degree in Counseling Psychology, with a specialization in Somatic Psychotherapy from John F. Kennedy University. Prior, I received a Master’s Degree in Human Sexuality Studies from San Francisco State University. I completed my undergraduate degree at the University of California at Berkeley.
A desire to find the most effective way to achieve lasting transformation led me to this practice. I am grateful that this work found me and am inspired by the opportunity to support people in their healing and growth.
