  • We are vulnerable bodies full of desire, existing in a world with both beauty and danger. Being in therapy offers a way to come to intimately know your own particular experience in the world. This knowledge gives you a base from which to relate and empathize with others. It builds your capacity to acknowledge reality and be with difference.

    People often come to therapy with a sense that past experiences are continuing to distress them, but without a clear sense of how or why. Old injuries do not go away, but rather take on a life of their own in your internal world. The unconscious influences how we think, feel, imagine, and behave. Building understanding of these experiences is a long term process and a matter of depth.

    Working with me, you can expect engaged listening, deliberate evocative questions, accountability, reliability, and holistic care with attention to bodily and emotional experiences, thoughts and fantasies. I see therapy as a collaborative creative free space. In the beginning of our work together I will ask you a lot of questions about yourself so I can have a comprehensive sense of who you are and what you are here to work on.

    I am direct and sensitive, sturdy and playful. I am boundaried, thoughtful, and heartfelt. I hold therapy as an intellectual, emotional, and sensory endeavor.

    I graduated from the California Institute of Integral Studies with an MA in Somatic Psychology. I have continued training in Mind-Body Centering with Bonnie Bainbridge Cohen. I am interested in the continual mapping of how systems of oppression take shape in individuals and in relationships. I am influenced by Buddhist philosophy and relational psychoanalytic theory.
