I earned my M.A.in Counseling Psychology at California Institute of Integral Studies.
I began working with individual clients at The Center for Somatic Psychotherapy and then The Marina Counseling Center.
My practice is now based with The Center for Mindful Psychotherapy and my office is in Presidio Heights.
I've also counseled children and families within several organizations — including Mill Valley Middle School (at present),
San Francisco Child Abuse Prevention Center, Seeds of Awareness Nature-Based Social Skills Education, and Glide Family Services.
I'm enthusiastic about the value and therapeutic significance of relating to animals.
Personally, I've long been drawn to working with and learning from animals,
and currently volunteer with an equine organization in Marin and a canine rescue in San Francisco.
My personal and professional growth is informed by ongoing study of Formative Psychology™.
Based on my own experience, I believe in the potency of somatic self-knowing and physical-emotional bodily integration.
