“Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?” — Mary Oliver
Life: loss, grief, family, relationships, LGBTQ, and the challenges of being a working artist. I can help you do you, authentically and with — let’s dare to say it — joy.
My therapeutic style is active and engaging, with the intention of fostering insight and self-awareness. I am very passionate about holistic health and wellness and I truly believe in the mind-body connection. I work experientially and relationally to assist my clients in reconnecting with their bodies and listening to their internal signals. I use a combination of mindfulness based practices, somatic interventions, gestalt therapy, psychodynamic therapy, and relational therapy. As a certified yoga instructor, I also use basic yoga postures, breath work, and guided meditations to help my clients increase their bodily awareness, process trauma in the body, and focus on the here and now.
A playful and collaborative approach to therapy that integrates mind, body, & emotions in context. Specialties: trauma, gender identity, sexuality, polyamory, depression, grief, career.
