My Approach

As a psychotherapist, shamanic coach, and artist I have learned how complimentary these disciplines are as healing interventions. I align empathically with clients and feel my way to the right approach. I use my empathic skills, deep intuition and sharpened intellect to decipher the clearest and most direct path for achieving goals. We'll look at our Male and Female imprints in order to illuminate and work through our beliefs, and own our totality. This brings us to the inspired creators we are meant to be. I have a no-nonsense, optimistic, and strategic approach to moving through this. I rely on coaching/advising, therapy (processing), dream analysis, journeying (guided drum meditations), energetic cleansing, ceremony, altar building, and vibrational allies such as crystals. With these tools we can create new pathways through old problems.

My Background

I received my BA from Swarthmore College in Pennsylvania and my MA in Counseling from Southwestern College in Santa Fe, NM. I also apprenticed with master herbalists in Ithaca, NY and Native healers in New Mexico and the Peruvian Amazon. I have been cultivating a life as a psychotherapist, shaman, and artist. My journey has required me to explore and unify my inner Male and Female polarities. This union births the conscious creative self within. We can then manifest in alignment with our true Self, our Community, and The Earth. I work to assist others in this pursuit.
