My work as a therapist is rooted in the principle that your own body contains an inner wisdom, not only to heal from the trauma and struggles of modern life, but to create your life in the way that you have always wanted. My goal is to help you tune in to your own inner wisdom, to walk beside you as a supportive guide as you navigate your healing path.

My approach to the therapeutic process is individualized, collaborative, and holistic. I am trained in Sensorimotor Psychotherapy (2020), and as a trauma-informed yoga teacher (Yoga Alliance RYT, 2017). I use these tools in session to directly engage unresolved emotions or trauma in the body, allowing them to “move through,” or release, both psychologically and physiologically. I find that this work opens up space for my clients to begin to step beyond old emotional patterns that are no longer serving their needs.

As a therapist, I enjoy working with a wide range of client challenges. My specialty areas include working with trauma-related issues, navigating major life transitions, existential issues, coping with chronic illness, identity exploration, substance abuse & addictions, and integration of spiritual and/or psychedelic experiences. I am an LGBTQIA+ affirming practitioner, and account for the impact that discriminatory societal norms on the basis of race, gender, sexuality, and class have on each individual’s sense of self and overall mental health.

Personally, I have walked my own healing path in recovery from trauma and addiction. It is through my personal recovery that I was able to step into my true purpose, and ultimately my work as a therapist. In the midst of my recovery, I completed many yoga trainings, spent much time in sadhana at my chosen ashram, returned to school for my degree in counseling psychology, and began to facilitate ceremonial group healing spaces in an effort to share this work. My journey opened me to the possibilities of transformation through direct experience and connection. It is my sincere hope to share this possibility with you.
