I am an integral practitioner whose practice is rooted in collaboration, imagination, and reverence for that which is not yet known.


I believe that all people knowingly and unknowingly strive for wholeness and have an innate impulse toward growth. My stance in every therapeutic encounter is person-centered, which means that I follow your psyche’s natural movement with the confidence that every person already holds within them all they need to heal and grow. For example, I may work with you using symbols that arise through your dreams, sand trays, art, play, body, symptoms, and/or imagination in order to help you become more aware of your potential and your ever-unfolding process of becoming your truest self. My extensive study of and training in Depth Psychology and Expressive Arts Therapy (which encompasses visual art, movement, drama, music, language, and imagination) provides me the unique opportunity to competently and imaginatively help you use your own creative processes to explore the richness of both the known and unknown parts of your inner world as a wise resource for healing. 


I enter the therapeutic space with curiosity, compassion, and non-judgment, and without preconceived notions of who you are or what you would like to gain from therapy. I practice cultural humility and open-mindedness, and truly believe that every individual is unique and holds authority over their own identity and story. I welcome ALL people to my practice. I see people first, rather than simply the issues with which people come to therapy to work on, and look through a relational-based lens that recognizes individuals’ greater social and relational contexts. My goal is to build a safe space with you that allows me to meet you where you are, and at the same time challenge you to take hold of opportunities for growth when you are ready.


I look forward to meeting you, and hope to become an ally on your journey.

I offer a warm, engaged, relational approach to help you on a path to deeper connection and wellness. 


I specialize in the sacred work of grief, and the important places of growth and love that loss brings us. In these dark places of our life, we can find deeper places in ourselves, and a richness and fertility that brings greater wisdom and joy to our lives. I also specialize in working with trauma, depression, perinatal loss, women's issues, career changes, and relationship issues.


I help clients build skills for regulating strong feelings, and calming anxiety through mindfulness work, breath work and building awareness of the body. I work with Somatic Psychology to help clients tune into the sensations of thier bodies and the wisdom that the body offers us. I also enjoy working with dreams and art to understand what may be beneath our consious awareness. I draw on modern research in the areas of trauma, attachment, the brain and the body.


If you are struggling to find peace or meaning in your day to day life, if you are in pain and feel like something is wrong with you, if you wish to have more love for yourself and in return, love for others, I can work with you to tend to the places that need your attention and help you care for the soul.
