My Ideal Client

I can be a good match for people who like to question things and think outside of the box. I love brainstorming about all the possibilities and ways to unfold situations. All the choices that are possible. I love collaborating to see the truth of a situation, holding the idea that the "truth sets us free."

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.
