About My Clients

I love helping folks find their way through a difficult past and present-day challenges. I identify as a highly sensitive person (HSP) of gifted intelligence, both of which inform my work.

My Background and Approach

I offer experiential therapy, so you can go beyond cognitive understanding to actually having a transformative experience in session. I hold a body-based, integral, and spiritual frame for the work of therapy. (Somatic and transpersonal, to use psychology jargon.) This means that relief and healing can come from integrating mind with body and emotions, and expanding spiritual awareness. I have an active style that is much more than simply listening. I support and facilitate the natural wisdom of your mind, body, emotions, and highest self to move towards healing by unlocking what feels stuck. In addition to making sense of what's happening, I find that more radical change comes from new experiences of awareness that open up new choices. Together, we allow these deeper experiences to emerge through attuning to emotions and sensations with mindfulness. This holistic work can not only alleviate what is causing our pain, but also awaken our dormant potentials.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

Along with my Master's degree in Integral Counseling Psychology from California Institute of Integral Studies (CIIS) in San Francisco, I also pull from wisdom traditions including Buddhism and mystical Christianity. I am a Certified Subtle Energy Medicine Practitioner and have been working formally with subtle energy since 2007. Additionally, I hold a Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Science from Principia College in Illinois. My professional background includes management experience in education, non-profit publishing, human resources, and e-commerce web design/development. Born and raised in California, I have also lived in the midwest and on the east coast. I love animals, have volunteered at animal shelters, and work with my Shiba Inu as a therapy dog.
