In my practice with individual adults and couples, I integrate my training in Gestalt psychology techniques, body-based modalities, and shamanic counseling techniques, as well as a long- standing personal investigation into holistic approaches to health.
Having trained for over 15 years in earth based healing traditions, I feel a deep reverence for the healing power of nature, and gently weave into my client work an awareness of the interconnectedness of all beings. I strive to be a trusted ally in my clients’ journeys of healing and transformation. I hold a gentle and supportive space, yet I am also very comfortable being direct and honest in my observations. In my work I am particularly focused on:
deepening self-acceptance and self-esteem
recognizing and transforming limiting mental patterns
empowering clients through recognition of how we participate in creating our experiences in life
supporting the integration of mind, body and spirit
In addition to my training as a therapist, I have also worked as a birth and postpartum doula. This experience, along with my experience as a mother, enables me to offer unique support and counseling services for individuals and couples in all phases of family building.
Support before, during, and after pregnancy
Assisting individuals and couples in facing related challenges, such as infertility, parenting decision processes, and postpartum depression.
My educational background includes:
MA in Integral Counseling Psychology from the California Institute of Integral Studies
BA in Gender Studies from Eugene Lang College of the New School for Social Research
