I think finding the “right” therapist for you has to do with feeling good about that person, having a sense that being in their presence is enlivening and healthy, even when you’re working with something uncomfortable or difficult.
I’ve been seeing clients for over 10 years and absolutely adore this work, mainly because I learn so much from and with my clients and relish having true, honest conversations and co-creating a container for transformation. My style is warm and trauma-informed, and I frequently incorporate somatic(body)-based trauma healing modalities such as Brainspotting, EMDR, mindfulness, guided imagery, and psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy preparation and integration practices.
Since losing my mom several years ago, I am learning to walk more gently and curiously toward the big existential questions of where we come from and where (and how) we go, of what it means to be an embodied human in these times. I welcome clients’ grief and wondering, as we sit together in these explorations.
I am fascinated by ongoing developments in neurobiology, entheogen research, and all the ways that the biochemical terrain in our bodies affect our emotions. I am certified in EMDR, trained in Brainspotting, and integrate trauma processing whenever appropriate. I hold undergraduate and Masters degrees from Brown University, as well as a Masters in Counseling Psychology from Meridian University.
I love people and I love this earth. I’ve had the privilege to get to work in the social justice arena with powerful youth and their families and communities for the past 15 years via the nonprofit Movimiento. Although therapy can often feel appropriately cocooned in a sacred and contained space, I have seen again and again how one person’s inner healing is catalytic to broader cultural transformation. I believe both are important.
My everyday loves: mothering my boys, this great wild earth, acts of kindness and justice, crafts and ancestral skills, homesteading, traveling, and horses.

I believe life is a journey with many twists and turns. Through the therapeutic process, I am honored to walk side by side with individuals during times of need. I am passionate about honoring each person’s individual journey and soul path. I use an integrated and intuitive therapeutic approach to assist others with tapping into and building upon their current strengths and skills. Additionally, I assist in the processing of current or past patterns, behaviors, memories and dreams in order to support each person with their individual vision of wellness and healing. I have received additional training in Trauma-Informed Yoga and Yoga Nidra, Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction and DBT. I utilize these various techniques in an integrated manner along with Existential and Humanistic approaches to meet each person at their comfort level.
I earned my B.A. in English from the University of California in Davis where I studied Mythology, Poetry and Education. I received my M.A. from National University in 2018 in Counseling Psychology. When I have free time, I spend it going on adventures of all kinds with my husband of 18 years who is a pilot in the Air Force and my two teenagers, all of whom I absolutely adore. Any time beyond that is spent passionately researching and exploring all of the ways in which the soul journeys through the human experience and how the soul connects and transmutes within the paradigms of culture, ecology, history, psychology, art, sound and sacred rituals. Additionally, I am a certified End of Life Specialist and hospice volunteer who is passionate and dedicated to the sacred and numinous moments along the human path from birth to death that give rise to growth and vision. My heart, mind and soul are dedicated to the mission of walking alongside others on this journey called life and serving humanity with compassion and joy.

My approach is to be trauma informed and client centered. Each client comes into therapy with their own experiences, perspectives, and goals. That includes you, too. Together we will work to create an efficient and effective plan for providing you the highest level of care and treatment for what your support needs are. Therapy has as much to do with the safety of the relationship between client and clinician as it does with the content. We will move through your healing with care, compassion, and at your pace.
I have worked in a variety of fields: substance abuse, domestic violence, sexual assault, crisis, and trauma. My goals are to work with individuals, couples, and families in a way that promotes healing, progress, and positive change. There is no one-size-fits-all approach, we will work as a team.
We’re all humans just trying to make it through this wild experience that we call life. Just like you, my journey has been faced with adversity. I believe the therapeutic process can be a powerful container to hold space for focused and mindful attention to creating space for what we struggle with to be a little less daunting.
