Hello and Welcome!

Thank you for taking the time to learn more about me!

Because you are here, I expect you are struggling with something challenging and have (or want to have) hope that therapy can help.  If after reading what I share below about my approach you think we may be a good fit to collaborate on your therapeutic goals, I invite you to book an initial appointment with me. Because the most important thing to look for in a therapist is someone you feel comfortable with, I encourage you to approach your search as an exercise in empowered, assertive self-care.

My Approach to Therapy

As a relational and experiential therapist, I  strive to create a safe and nonjudgemental space to explore how you relate to yourself, the people in your life and the circumstances you find yourself in because these relationships tend to guide us to the source of suffering and growth.

Each of us responds to disappointment, threat and uncertainty based on unique learnings and emotional knowings we acquired as we live and connect with others in early and other significant relationships.  Often, our struggles are rooted in hurts and hard learnings related to these responses and the meaning we make of them. I employ interventions and principles guided by what modern relational neuroscience teaches about the brain, the body, the mind, the nervous system, and their impact on well-being to create a therapeutic process unique to you. Healing and the brain changes that support growth-related learning and unlearning also happen within relationships. I prioritize nurturing ours while using an integrative approach informed by training in numerous evidence-based humanistic, holistic, somatic and psychodynamic treatment modalities and ancient wisdom traditions to create a space where you can deepen self-knowledge and self-trust.

Most of the people I work with benefit from exploring their struggles through a more compassionate lens and this will likely be a focus in our work as we collaborate on helping you find what you long for by breaking patterns of dissatisfaction and disconnection while building on your strengths to open to life with enthusiasm and an expanded sense of “okay-ness” with the inevitable difficulties and challenges that show up.

Who I Work With:

Kids and Teens (age 11 +)

I work collaboratively with children and parents using trauma-informed, brain-based, nervous-system informed perspectives and practices based on the work of Dr. Bruce Perry and Robyn Gobbel, among others.


I specialize in untangling the root cause of symptoms that create suffering in order to break free from the addictive patterns, behaviors, beliefs and substances we use to manage, escape, and soothe emotional distress to live with more ease and less pain. I provide individual, relational and couples therapy to adults from all walks of life including the queer and neurodiverse communities I identify with and a wide range of  ages, races, genders, spiritual beliefs, education levels and income brackets.  I am sex-positive, kink allied, supportive of open relationships and non-monogamy, conventional or traditional relationships. Your unique combination of characteristics will be met with acceptance, curiosity and validation. Some of the things I can help with include:

  • Complex Trauma
  • Relationship Issues
  • Guilt + Shame
  • Spirituality
  • Addiction
  • Emotional Dysregulation 
  • Dissociation
  • Borderline Traits
  • Anxiety + Depression
  • Alcohol + Drug Use
  • Grief + Mourning
  • Religious Trauma
  • Identity Development
  • Loneliness + Disconnection
  • Life + Career Transitions
  • Self-Harming
  • Suicidal Ideation


I am grateful to have found my way to this field after a 25-year career in high-stakes political and corporate roles as an advocate for social change, achieving outward success that often masked an inward sense of dissociation and disconnectedness.  My personal journey through various forms of therapy and levels of care – individual, group, couples… at different stages of life, with different types of therapists has profoundly shaped my understanding and approach to healing and sparked a deep desire to understand the human condition and how the embodied integration of brain, mind and relationships shape us.  I love learning about this! This fascination led me to obtain academic credentials and advanced trainings that compliment years of personal studies and experiences with esteemed mentors in the healing qualities of somatic work, meditation, spirituality, storytelling, dance, music and poetry so that I can support and serve others in their desire to increase well-being and reduce suffering.  I spend my time away from work on walks with my dog listening to teachings, podcasts and books, practicing Buti Yoga, water-skiing on occasion, and enjoying time with the people I hold dear.
