Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist in Pacific Grove, CA
I work with a variety or orientations, but somatic is primary. I am trained in the Hakomi method, which uses mindfulness and the body and is very experiential.
My psychotherapy work is transpersonal, and I bring a subtle energy component to my optional table work. I am a Certified Subtle Energy Medicine Practitioner since 2012 through Luminous Body Integral School of Energy Medicine.
My couples and relationship work pulls from the leading experts in the field, including Stan Tatkin's PACT model, Sue Johnson's Emotionally Focused Therapy, Ellyn Bader's developmental model of differentiation, and research by the Gottmans. However, I have a special liking for Harville Hendrix and Kelly LaHunt's Imago therapy.
