I am a licensed Marriage and Family therapist with an expertise in trauma recovery. I have been working for over twenty years helping people contact their inner wisdom as a path toward making profound changes in their lives. I work with diverse groups of people, sharing and developing strategies for self-awareness, systemic change, and whole person integration. In addition to my work with adults and families, I have a special affinity for adolescents and young people.
My training includes a Masters degree in Counseling Psychology, and a Masters Degree in Interdisciplinary Art. My sensibility has been tempered by the school of Life, where I have learned and taught much about depression, anxiety, grief, and the possibility of transformation through daily practices. I work with individuals from all walks of life; couples in various stages of bonding and dissolution; families in conflict and growth; adolescents who are launching themselves into the world; and groups working through organizational change processes. My approach supports clients in reaching their personal goals and making lasting change in their lives.
I have an expertise in somatics, eco-psychology and the expressive arts. My advanced trainings include Hakomi Body-Centered psychotherapy, the Halprin Life/Art Process, Authentic Movement Strozzi Bodywork, and Generative Somatics. I am a widely published author in the fields of dance/performing arts, somatics and sustainability.
