My Approach

I bring together a reverence for the human brain and physiology with an experiential approach to the healing process. Through a combination of psychoeducation, somatic and relational approaches, I offer an empowered excursion into the world of your self. My work is deeply grounded in an attachment orientation, which helps my clients to begin to sort out the aspects of themselves that are acting in service to some historical imperative, from who they truly are. Together my clients and I create a map on their interior world to support more agency, more connection and more satisfaction in their lives.

My Background

I received my education at the California Institute of Integral Studies, as I believe that in addition to our psychology, there is a spiritual element to the human journey. My journey from a first career as a theater artist/ waitperson through 13 years as a special education teacher in the portland public schools to my current career has shown me that we must honor ourselves as we are and find connections and work that offers us the opportunity to express ourselves creatively in the world. This looks different for each of us. I specialize in working with folks for whom their early relationships, were confusing and disconnecting.
