Moving cross-country in my 30s, I made some big changes and forged a new path, which I continue on today.
My curiosity as a therapist is informed by my own evolution and an exploration of humanity.
Currently on the Central Coast of California, I see clients through my private practice in Los Osos.
I earned my M.A.in Counseling Psychology at California Institute of Integral Studies. My counseling work began in San Francisco at
The Center for Somatic Psychotherapy, The Marina Counseling Center, and 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.
