Moving from the East coast to California in my 30s, I made some big changes, down a new path, which I continue on today.
My curiosity as a therapist is informed by my own evolution and an exploration of humanity.
I earned my M.A.in Counseling Psychology at California Institute of Integral Studies.
I began at The Center for Somatic Psychotherapy and then The Marina Counseling Center in San Francisco.
My practice is now based with The Center for Mindful Psychotherapy.
I've also counseled children and families within several organizations — including Mill Valley Middle School,
San Francisco Child Abuse Prevention Center, Seeds of Awareness Nature-Based Social Skills Education, and Glide Family Services.
My personal and professional growth is informed by Stanley Keleman's Formative Psychology™.
Based on my own experience, I believe in the potency of physical-emotional self-knowing and bodily integration.
Another foundation is Relational Life Therapy™, Terry Real's model of relational skills.
At its heart, it's about the unique realm of couplehood:
we must learn to distinguish and adjust our own individualistic beliefs, learned history, and actions,
and grow personal accountability to benefit one another and the relationship.
