My therapeutic practice is rooted in mindfulness meditation, deep ecology, ritual, sensory exploration, polyvagal theory, and pleasure awareness, and is wholeheartedly and unreservedly sex-positive, kink- and poly-/ENM-friendly.
Born and raised in Northern California and Hawai’i, I call the oak savannah, redwood forests, fog and ocean my home. A devout sensualist and hedonist, I delight in the smell of the soil, the feel of water, sun and wind; I mark the passage of time by fruit and vegetables in their seasons, the Wheel of the Year, and the phases of the moon. Among my many identities, I am a neo-pagan of the Reclaiming tradition, a Buddhist, an organic gardener, a yogini, a Somatic Sex Educator (in training), and a Burner—rusty bike, booty shorts and all. A lifelong learner, I hold a MA in Integral Counseling Psychology for the California Institute for Integral Studies, a MA in Education from Stanford University, and a BA in Community Studies from UC Santa Cruz.
