Compassion, curiosity, and a deep appreciation for the inter-connectedness of body, mind and spirit form the foundation for my work.
My aim is to help you connect with your authentic self, to facilitate the natural expression of peace and happiness, and to honor your deepest nature. I integrate somatic awareness, self-inquiry, imagination, mindfulness, EMDR, and attention to the therapeutic relationship, with the goal of helping you move towards greater happiness and well being.
I have extensive experience in the field of grief and loss through my work as a grief counselor at Hospice by the Bay. I also have training in EMDR, a trauma-focused therapy that has been shown to be an effective treatment for PTSD (please see www.emdria.com for more information).
My background also includes work as a body worker and yoga instructor, as well as training in mindfulness meditation. These modalities all serve to deepen my work as a psychotherapist.
I am comfortable working with a range of issues, including grief and loss, trauma recovery, anxiety, depression, self-esteem issues, and relationship challenges.
