My Approach

Current research of the human brain confirms the teaching of many wisdom and indigenous traditions, that we live in an interconnected and relational world and our being is inextricably woven with the being of other beings and the world itself. As we grow up, our brains, and therefore our understanding and beliefs about ourselves and the world, are formed by our early and ongoing experiences through our basic need for attachment. These early experiences, whatever they are, are held in our brains and bodies in unconscious and subconscious patterns throughout multiple systems including neural connections, nervous system responses, and movement habits. They are imbedded in culture, history, socioeconomic status, and the intersection of power and privilege. When we mindfully bring our attention and acceptance to our experience in the moment, in the presence of a caring and open other, these patterns can open and reveal themselves and allow for new, chosen, more desired ways of being.

My Background

I have an MA in Dance/Movement Therapy and Counseling from Antioch University New England and am a Licensed Porfessional Counselor in the state of Oregon. I also work at Cascadia Behavioral Health as a crisis counselor. My ongoing studies are in Interpersonal Neurobiology, attachment, trauma, and Hakomi . My background in social justice, activism, spirituality and feminism and my own experience of recovery inform my approach.
