My Background and Approach

I hope to create a space where you feel safe and capable of holding your experience in a new way. Where you can cultivate greater acceptance, curiosity and appreciation for yourself and your life. From this space of self-acceptance, we will begin to explore the ways in which your natural expression has been distorted. In essence, we will recognize the blocks that inhibit you from meaningfully connecting to yourself and others. I practice a style of therapy, Gestalt Therapy, that is less talking about problems and more an active exploration of your experience in the world, with the hope of opening untapped resources and insight, so you can flow more freely through your life. I am influenced by Buddhist Psychology which I incorporate into my practice.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I received my undergraduate degree in Humanistic and Transpersonal Psychology from Sonoma State. I was a research assistant at the Institute of Noetic Sciences, studying transformations of consciousness. In my 20s I transitioned from research to working primarily worked with at risk youth in a variety of clinical settings. After being in the field for a number of years, I completed a degree in Counseling Psychology from Lewis and Clark. I receive ongoing training in Gestalt Therapy from the Gestalt Therapy Training Center Northwest. I have been an active member in contemplative communities for over a decade and bring extensive experience in meditation, mindfulness, psychedelics and spirituality. I believe your life is the true guide to your healing.
