My Ideal Client

I work with folks from many walks of life who are on a soulful path of healing & personal growth. Community leaders, business owners, mothers/parents, creatives, artists, healing practitioners, HSPs, entrepreneurs, visionaries and anyone seeking to delve deeper into the work of becoming your most authentic self and living your most meaningful and fulfilling life and would like some help along the way.

What I Specialize In

I use experiential, relational, somatic, trauma-informed, mind-body approaches to support your innate capacity to heal and deepen your connection to self, others & the world around you. Using Experiential Attachment work (rooted in the science of interpersonal neurobiology), we facilitate the deep rewiring of your nervous system. This profound approach helps you to better understand and stay connected to yourself while connecting with others and the natural world around you. I hold a Masters in Counseling Psychology and have extensive training in Hakomi and related Mindfulness-based somatic modalities.

Why I am a Good Fit for You

I walked down several professional paths (commericial fishing in Alaska for 20 years, working with the alter-abled, being an oncology massage therapist) before finally listening to my soul's calling, to be a psychotherapist. I’ve experienced severe bullying, lived with a parent struggling w/addiction, had my heart broken, lost several precious people to death & am no stranger to pain. I have always felt DEEPLY the suffering of others & the world around me. Witnessing the continued impact of this country’s history of genocide & slavery hurts my heart to the core & inspires me to be a part of the healing of these ancient & not-so-distant wounds in any way I can. This experience informs my social-justice lens and I aim to serve all persons impacted by this history. I am enlivened by helping you mend the wounds of your past, reclaim the parts that have been exiled and become the more whole version of you. This world needs what you bring, lets unearth it and bring it forth together.

Issues I Treat


  • Personal Growth External link

    If you are hungry to learn, grow and evolve in this human life, step forward, let's amplify your individual efforts and join forces to help you become who you know you already are deep down inside & meant to be. I blend the therapeutic approach that explores the deeper reasons and core issues for why you are where you are, with coaching tools to help you take more actionable steps toward your goals. I find this blend helps you have the most tangible results and experience more lasting change.

  • Spirituality External link

    I resonate with the concept that we are spiritual beings here on earth to experience being human, with the wide spectrum of emotions and experiences that entails. I draw from earth-based, archetypal, energetic, and eastern spiritualities and enjoy exploring beliefs, dreams, ritual, intuitions, prayers, intentions, and diving deep into the mystery with my clients.

  • Parenting External link

    Recently having been forged in the fire of pregnancy, birth and becoming a mother, I feel especially passionate about working with mothers/birthers and folks of all genders who are, or want to become, parents. We don't live in villages anymore, so therapy can be one place to get the support you need as you navigate this ultimate life transition and all that comes with raising little humans up. I'd be honored to help encourage, educate, guide, grieve & celebrate with you along the way.

  • Loss or Grief External link

    If you have lost a person, a home, a job, a friendship, a lover, your children, I want to be here with you as you are in the process of grieving and carrying on. I have experienced many of my own losses in this life, including being present with the death of my father and several close friends and mentors. I have a deep respect for the process of dying. I believe that grief is a necessary process that we all need to let ourselves go toward in order to have a more rich and fulfilling life.
