My Approach

My work uses mindfulness and a body oriented approach to foster palpable positive changes in the quality of the experiences you are having day to day. As your experience of life changes for the better, behavior, feelings and actions naturally change with it. My clients say that I am kind, warm and gentle but also willing to be direct. Therapy with me is effective and deep and also frequently joyful and filled with laughter.

My Background

As a certified Hakomi Therapist and Teacher, I have more than a decade of experience and the skills to promote lasting change. I have extensive training and experience helping clients regain access to a sense of safety and possibility through somatic trauma resolution work. I also specialize in attachment oriented work which helps people find greater ease, satisfaction and clarity in navigating connection and boundaries in their relationships with others.
