My Approach

I work most effectively with people who identify with one or more of the following statements:   - My relationships drain me - I can’t identify my needs - I suffer in isolation - Life is exhausting - I can’t move my life in the direction I want - I feel helpless - I feel "other" - I am a survivor, but I can not seem to thrive - I have a rich fantasy world - I can not slow down - I am secretive - I feel responsible for making people love me - I am not sure if my childhood was difficult - I don’t feel like myself lately - I feel lost. My hope as a therapist is to help you create more choices in your life and to help you relate more authentically to yourself and others. I will attend to both content - what you say in the room - and process - what you do in the room. I will often guide you to become more curious about what is happening in your body. The body offers up a clear path to the parts of us that need attention and healing.

My Background

I received my Masters in Counseling Psychology with a focus in Integral Psychology from the California Institute of Integral Studies. My curriculum blended Eastern and Western spiritual traditions with traditional psychology, and was predominantly experiential. This means I was asked to do my own inner work before I became a therapist. My clinical training, orientation, and style draws from psychodynamic psychology, humanistic-existential philosophy, eco-psychology, the mind-body practices of Eastern traditions, queer theory, intersectionality, and feminism, and from my own experience, which lies at the heart of every therapists’ work. I recently created Red Thread Counseling, which I am expanding into a collective of healers offering humanistic therapies and earth-based practices for the mind, body and soul.
