My Approach

My approach is compassionate, non-judgmental and wisdom based. I believe that you inherently know what you need to live the life you want. When we are hurting it can be incredibly difficult to be in touch with our own inner-wisdom. My role is to listen intently and slow you down when I catch something important. I find places where you can go deeper into your own introspection to know what is truly happening for you. With that knowing, you can alter however you need to move on and live a life more resonant and peaceful. That is my intention for therapy. That, and, sometimes it can be just so healing to be heard and felt and understood.

My Background

I have been a student of meditation for over 20 years, and incorporate mindfulness into my work. I was a past Licensed Massage Therapist and have learned about how we hold trauma in our physical body. I am trained in Emotionally Focused Therapy for Couples, and have been through the Gottman program for couples. I have also taken intensive EMDR trainings and incorporate EMDR when appropriate. I am In-Network with OHP Open Card (not in-network with FamilyCare or Health Share), I am also In-Network with Pacificare.
