I offer supervision for Associate Marriage and Family Therapists in my private practice who are accruing hours towards licensure. To ensure they offer effective services to their clients, I meet with them weekly for clinical supervision.

“If you want to become whole, let yourself be partial. If you want to become straight, let yourself be crooked.” – The Tao-te Ching.
Fundamentally, I believe that my clients hold the expertise and wisdom required to enable their healing. As a clinician, I aim to maintain a safe, nonjudgmental container that allows a greater knowing and acceptance of yourself. We will work together, utilizing collaborative dialogue and integrative body-mind explorations to reveal and nurture those tender parts longing to be seen and heard.
I work dynamically with clients, with a driving passion for social justice and the liberation of all bodies. Founded in Body Psychotherapy of the Reichian tradition, my practice centers on self-acceptance and body-mind integration to allow a fluid experience of oneself. My therapeutic approaches include Hakomi, Kelemen, Relational, Intersubjective, Somatic, and mindfulness approaches to psychotherapy.

Beginning Somatic Therapy is taking a step towards yourself. Therapy is a choice for you, and only you, to make time for self-reflection, intentional connection, and body-mind integration and healing. The goal of therapy is not to be ‘fixed’ or to change who you are but to come to know yourself as you would a dear friend. Together we will explore, discover, and come to love your unique genius.
