About Me:

  • My clients describe me as:

    Clients appreciate my straightforward manner, compassion and authenticity as well as my humor and down to earth personality.

  • Something to know about my approach is:

    I am a systemic and relational therapist, an educator and a scientist by training, a curious and open hearted human by nature. I use mindful, somatic and narrative tools in my work with individuals, dyads and families. All are welcome here.

  • Together, we will:

    Create a secure attachment from which you can safely come into your body and heart to find liberation from your pain. Using somatic and mindful practices, explore your relationship to self and others, patterns, needs, wounding and desires.

  • I specialize in working with people who:

    Those with trauma, anxiety and/or insecure/ disorganized relationship patterns. Clients experiencing loneliness and detachment from self and others despite outward appearances. Depression, transitions, relationship dyads and families.

  • I became a therapist because:

    I believe all people deserve to live a fulfilling life of meaning as they define it. I am dedicated to healing through service.

  • Something that stands out about where I offer therapy is:

    I currently offer tele-health to clients across California and will be offering groups both on line and in person in the Santa Cruz area in 2022.

  • More about me and my practice:

    Within the safety of the therapeutic relationship we create together use somatic practices, rest, restore and heal. Heal core wounding, learn tools and new skills to feel better in your body, about yourself, your life and your relationships.
