I approach psychotherapy from a wellness and empowerment model that assumes we all have basic goodness and tend towards health rather than dysfunction. I believe we have the answers to our problems inside of us. My therapeutic intention is to support you in the process of discovering your own inner wisdom.
My client-centered therapeutic work emphasizes personal reflection, integration and skill building, laying the foundation for fulfilling relationships with self and other. Through an integrated body/mind/spirit approach, I will assist you in accessing the natural intelligence of your body to rediscover your birthright of balance and health. My goal for this process is heart-centered, creative inquiry. As clarity naturally emerges, I welcome feedback about your needs in the moment, allowing our collaborative relationship to grow.
I see life as a web of relationships. I am guided by the vision of healthy individuals creating safe and nourishing communities. We all have a unique contribution to make. I trust that a personal healing journey, once begun, will ripple out into the world.

I have a strong somatic background in yoga, dance and Authentic Movement.
Participating in experiential practices that integrate body/mind/spirit, enhance connection to Source, and provide a place for creative exploration of interpersonal connection together create the context for my therapeutic work.
When I can come fully into the moment through breath and the instrument of my body, I get out of my own way and let something greater than myself provide whatever is needed. Here I feel my inherent wholeness and discover my spiritual center.
