I have a Master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling with specialization in Holistic Studies from Lesley University. I approach psychotherapy with a person-centered, trauma-informed, somatic, and relational-cultural orientation. My work draws on psychodynamic and humanistic skills as well as parts-work and body-oriented psychotherapies. Important teachers and lineages that shape my work include: Carl Jung, Wilhelm Reich, Eugene Gendlin, Fritz Perls, Carl Rogers, Irvin Yalom, and Ron Kurtz.
I bring to counseling over a decade of experience in the healing arts including herbalism, bodywork, yoga, and Ayurvedic medicine. These experiences anchor me in a holistic orientation towards wellbeing with an emphasis on the capacity for healing through connection and embodiment.
