Mindful and Somatic Approaches to Change


Individual Therapy


Perhaps you are dealing with anxiety or depression, grieving the death of a loved one or a painful breakup, struggle with belonging, overwhelmed by a transition, or just feel stuck and know that you are ready to do something about it. I believe in your capacity to find the healing you seek and create the life you envision.  Let me help you uncover unconscious patterns and beliefs that may be keeping you from living from your best self. Together we will develop personal tools and embodiment practices that will support you in creating real and lasting change. 

Couples Therapy


Do you want more intimacy, connection, and joy in your relationships? Do you want to learn how to resolve conflict with more skill and ease? Do you find yourself in patterns that are unhealthy to the relationship? Relationships are the one thing that most of us deeply want, yet we are rarely taught how to create healthy connections with an intimate partner.  Let me help you bring more love, capacity, and presence into your connection, whether you are working through challenges or simply want to hone your relationship skills. 

My Approach

Are you looking for more than traditional talk therapy? I am a certified Hakomi Therapist, a counseling modality that uses mindfulness and the wisdom of the body to go beyond traditional talk therapy. I am also trained in multiple attachment-based modalities, attending to trauma activation, all the while holding a social justice lens. Authentic relating practices and compassionate communication are additionally core to my work as a therapist. Different approaches are called for in different moments. I will attune to what may be most helpful for you in any given session.
