When you seek therapy, it is often when you are feeling most vulnerable and need help right away. You are looking for a therapist who is warm, skillful, and knows how to address the challenges that you are facing.

In my practice I strive to use the most effective treatments.  I am most inspired by the research at the intersection of the neuroscience and psychology fields. By combining elements of Relational and Attachment Theory, along with Mindfulness meditation, and embodiment practices, I am able to attain results that make a difference in people’s lives.

I understand that revisiting vulnerable places may touch on feelings of pain, confusion or even shame. Using body awareness exercises, self-regulation techniques and mindfulness skills tailored to your specific needs, I can support you in finding solutions and help you to heal the places inside that are holding you back from what you want in your life.

During my psychotherapy training in Somatic Psychology at California Institute for Integral Studies, I focused on how to make connections between the mind, body emotions and spirit. Over time, I discovered that in order to heal, one needs to create balance in these domains. For many years, I explored how to do this for myself and with my clients. My therapeutic intention is to provide a sacred therapeutic space where clients can feel safe to explore deeply within themselves and develop the tools they need to heal.

Finding the right therapist is essential to having a positive outcome. Together, we can organize a plan to define your goals and create a map on how you can succeed so that you can transform your life and strive to embrace your fullest potential.

For a New Beginning

In out-of-the-way places of the heart,
Where your thoughts never think to wander,
This beginning has been quietly forming,
Waiting until you were ready to emerge.

For a long time it has watched your desire,
Feeling the emptiness growing inside you,
Noticing how you willed yourself on,
Still unable to leave what you had outgrown.

It watched you play with the seduction of safety
And the gray promises that sameness whispered,
Heard the waves of turmoil rise and relent,
Wondered would you always live like this.

Then the delight, when your courage kindled,
And out you stepped onto new ground,
Your eyes young again with energy and dream,
A path of plenitude opening before you.

Though your destination is not yet clear
You can trust the promise of this opening;
Unfurl yourself into the grace of beginning
That is at one with your life’s desire.

Awaken your spirit to adventure;
Hold nothing back, learn to find ease in risk;
Soon you will be home in a new rhythm,
For your soul senses the world that awaits you.
