At the core of my practice is a genuine curiosity & care which I bring to each therapy container I create. I am devoted to identifying the root issues & inviting creative solutions to arise from the wisdom within you. As a highly sensitive, intuitive, and empathic person I will use my gifts to help build a lasting authentic connection both in our relationship and to yourself. Through all of this, we will utilize present moment awareness along with energetic & embodiment practices to assist your nervous system to return to its’ optimal state of being.
My goal is not only for you to “feel better” but also to experience a transcendent & lasting integration of the aspects of yourself that have been arrested in their development due to adverse traumatic experiences. Together, we will cultivate a dynamic relationship with your willingness to go all in on yourself, be empowered to show up, and advocate relentlessly for your desire to thrive. Even though this is hard work, along the way you can anticipate a heavy dose of humor, metaphorical allegory, deep listening along with tools to take with you into your everyday life. Each session we will expand your felt sense of belonging while you strengthen your capacity to live a life you love.
My belief is that in discovering “why the pain (Gabor Mate)” and meeting it fully, we can recover the traits of your original soul imprint to restore dignity and a healthy ego expression. We can meet the lost ones within you who have likely been struggling and aid them to live an integrated life that you can be truly proud of and excited to live for. You don’t have to go it alone, come in, “I’ll give ya, shelter from the storm (Bob Dylan)”. I will invite you to dig deep, rise up, and become who you were truly meant to be. Fully you & Fully Free.
I completed my Masters Mental Health Counseling at The New York Institute of Technology in 2009. Ever since, I have immersed myself in the healing arts from a multitude of fields and approaches.
My training and experience includes but is not limited to: Yoga training (500HR YTT) informed predominately from a non-dual Tantrik approach & Anusara, heart-centered elegant alignment practice, certification as a holistic health coach from the Institute of Integrative Nutrition, and numerous intensive studies and trainings in the practices of Radical Honesty, Circling, Non-Violent Communication, Authentic Relating, Family Constellations, 5-Rhythms Dance, and Matrix Leadership. I draw wisdom not only from this education but a personal lifetime commitment to the mind-body-spirit integration process.
In my daily life you’ll likely find me either moving my body in a sweaty yoga room, soaking in spring fed waters, hiking with my pups, or in the kitchen whipping up something delicious & nutritious.
