My Ideal Client

Lets cut though the noise of our busy life and competitive culture. Many of our beliefs- about ourselves and the world are projections of the past showing up non-consciously in the present. That's the way our brain works. Let's use our practice to be present and making a choice to step into the present moment, something new and our own potential.

My Background and Approach

My method of service is eclectic, strengths based and is a mindfulness-centered, somatic approach that is relational and empathic. I meet people where they are without judgment or expectation to explore: limiting personal beliefs/habits and ways to step into your strength and potential to become your best self. I trust in the wholeness of every human being to aid in the discovery of our natural state of thriving and balance.

Why I Became a Therapist

My MSW training and degree was received at the Hunter School of Social Work, NYC. I have post graduate training in the use of Gestalt, CIMBS (Complex Integration of Multiple Brain Systems) as well as extended training with the M.E.T.A. Institute: includes- Attachment work, Mindfulness, Trauma, Hakomi and RC- S. I have extensive experience as a grief/ bereavement counselor and hospice social worker as well as working in drug and alcohol treatment. Prior to my career as a social worker I worked as a freelance artist in New York and San Francisco.

Techniques I Use


  • Mindfulness-based External link

    Mindfulness used in therapy is a state of attention to become aware of current experience: somatic, cognitive, energetic and emotional. The present experience is then explored, without judgment, to make connections to patterns of belief and behavior.

  • Somatic Therapy (Body Centered) External link

    An interdisciplinary, holistic approach to study the experience of the body to reveal and understand the interaction of our body structures with our thoughts, beliefs and actions.

  • Attachment Theory External link

    Attachment work in therapy explores how dysfunctional attachment templates get represented in adult relationships by clients developing a personal, healthy, therapeutic relationship with their counselor. This relationship lays the groundwork to understand clients’ attachments to others through consistent and supportive communication.
