My Ideal Client

**OPENINGS FOR COUPLES/FAMILY THERAPY, WAITLIST FOR INDIVIDUAL THERAPY.** If we are working together in the context of relationships, the relationship itself will the north star. There's the agenda of the individuals in the relationship and then there is the agenda of the relationship itself. I may not know what wants to unfold in your relationship, but I can ask questions to help clarify and define that. We can figure that out together, collaboratively.

My Background and Approach

My background is in acupuncture, yoga, and body-based medicine. I have always been interested in holistic ways of thinking and the mind-body-spirit connection. I also have a background as a visionary painter; so poetic, symbolic ways of seeing the world and talking about the world are an option in our work together. We can always work on art together to tune into the felt-sense truth of a situation. We can work with words and story to play with perspectives. Or we can look at situations archetypally, bringing in big-picture thinking.

Why I Became a Therapist

I became interested in acupuncture as a way to connect beyond the story of what’s going on, and relate to others on a non-verbal level. I was hoping to relate at a fundamental energetic level, beyond words. As my acupuncture practice unfolded, I found that stories about life actually can’t be bypassed. (Plot twist!) We really do need to understand and make sense of what is happening in our lives through story. I enjoy continually learning about ways that people can work with story to get to a sense of truth about a situation. Finding the vibration of truth has always been a meaningful exploration for me, whether through story, psychology, acupuncture, art, or energy work. The form changes over the years, but the essence stays the same.
