For over twenty five years, I have been helping people and groups contact their inner wisdom as a path toward living the lives, and doing the work, they want to be doing. 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.
I am a licensed Marriage and Family therapist with an expertise in trauma recovery. My training includes a Masters degree in Counseling Psychology, as well as a Masters Degree in Interdisciplinary Art. I am a permaculture designer, and a deep ecologist with a primary commitment to regenerative possibilities for living. 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 practice.
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. I support women and men to grow into deeper personal awareness about their obstacles, their goals and their commitments in the world. It is my joy to be able to witness and support your journey toward clarity and purpose and to help you make the changes you desire.
I have an expertise in somatics, eco-psychology and the expressive arts. I have been blessed by many amazing teachers in the field of somatics; my advanced trainings are in Hakomi Body-Centered psychotherapy, the Halprin Life/Art Process, Authentic Movement, Strozzi Bodywork, and generative somatics. I bring my decades-long practices in yoga and mindfulness meditation to the counseling process as well.
