In my private practice, I work with individuals, couples and teens. My approach is warm, inviting, and client-centered. Each session, we begin with what's most present for you and then follow aliveness – as it unfolds, moment-to-moment, wherever it leads us. Over the years I've found that this organic process has its own intelligence and is completely trustworthy. Authenticity and
sincerity are the essential ingredients. You bring all of you – light and shadow, blessings and
challenges, interests and needs – as well as whatever hurts, feels stuck, or is ready to be released
or reclaimed. I bring all of me – presence and deep listening, non-judgment and curiosity, intuition, theory and tools – as well as everything I've learned so far about life, psyche, and spirit. Together, we follow your process – co-creating a way of working that is unique to you, in service to the fullest expression of your being.
The Work Is...
We're in this together. I am an active,
engaged participant – holding space
or leaning in, based on what's needed.
We use imagination, along with an
awareness of energy, to access our
other ways of knowing. Intuition
augments our analytical capacities.
Experiential practices, coupled with
skillful integration, facilitate deeper
and more lasting shifts. I incorporate
mindfulness, guided imagery, energy
work and expressive arts to name a few, based on client interest and what we
find to be most helpful.
We track, attend to and honor the
wisdom of the physical and subtle
We are oriented towards discovering
and following truth, with the deep
understanding that you are already
