In my early twenties, I was in a profound existential and identity crisis. My anxiety, confusion and loneliness compelled me to reach out for help. Thankfully, I was received by a caring and gifted therapist and spiritual mentor who helped me find my way through that particularly difficult passage.
More significantly, his genuine presence and wise support catalyzed a journey of healing and growth that continues to this day.
After a lot of interesting twists and turns, realizations and disillusionment, heartbreak and learning, my life’s unfolding led me to where I am now, sitting on the other side, in the therapist chair.
A kind heart, a playful curiosity, a grounded intuition and a passionate love for being real, present and personal are foundational to how I work.
I also feel increasingly influenced and guided by something greater than myself, by the inexhaustible mystery and goodness at the source life and being.
My work is informed by 20+ years of mindfulness and personal inquiry practice as well as ongoing training in couples work, emotionally focused and body-centered (somatic) approaches to therapy and personal growth.
I have practiced therapy since 2007. Prior to this, I worked with parents and children for over 15 years as an elementary educator, child care director and sports coach.
I have a Masters of Arts degree in Counseling Psychology with a Somatics emphasis from the California Institute of Integral Studies. I am registered with the California Board of Behavioral Sciences as a Marriage and Family Therapist (MFC #50551) and am professionally affiliated with the California Association of Marriage and Family Therapists (CAMFT).
