My clients and students value health, self-renewal and self-discovery, and believe that each of us plays an essential role in our healing. I use a meditative, gentle and brief method that: 1) Helps you discover patterns of thinking, feeling and action, 2) Makes emotions feel safe, uncovers core beliefs and images; 3) Utilizes the innate wisdom of the body; and 4) Opens new life choices. Most of my work is with individuals or couples suffering from stress, grief, depression, anxiety, panic, trauma, relationship difficulties, pain conditions, and sleeping and eating difficulties. I accept most health insurances.

There are natural points in our life in which we become aware that in order to move towards a fulfilling life, we must challenge the way we are currently living. In making the commitment to change, we must accept that change is not easy – while also acknowledging that it is absolutely within our reach and is the only thing worth fighting for.

My career and research are focused on the body, mind, and spirit connection. My concentration is in Holistic Mental Health Counseling, and I have expertise in Ayurvedic medicine, Yogic psychology, Hakomi, and herbal medicine. I bring these fields of study together to form a thorough understanding of how to find the way back to balance.

The clients who will benefit most from my services are those ready to commit to creating the life they have always wanted and are willing to make the changes to get it. If that speaks to you, know that my position is to be your support and guide through this process. My approach is rooted in being lovingly attentive and non-judgmental.

There are many ongoing benefits of mindfully managing sexual health. Mindful management is empowering and proactive by developing and practicing skills that identify what specifically promotes balance and health for each individual, as well as what leads to imbalance. It is an integrative approach that includes a holistic perspective of including body and mind in identifying and cultivating the development of an individual’s authentic sexual self. Practicing mindfulness-based basic tools, for use in accessing information, supports individuals to make informed decisions for more immediate course correction, that is advantageous for short and long-term contentment and well-being.
In therapy, we identify and follow an individual’s personal values and beliefs. We practice mindful exploration of the sexual self and individuals learn about skillful management of personal erotic energy. The experiencing, experimenting, and deepening understanding of one’s authentic sexual self is a conscious and self- respecting process that assesses for health, harm and safety. This process is starkly different from mindlessly and carelessly repeating past expressions of sexuality that might have had included some short-term pleasures, leading to longer-term adverse consequences. Examples of some ways that one’s sexuality can be negatively influenced include; operating from an arousal template that is informed by past trauma, acting out sexual behaviors that induce shame or create disconnection, engaging in sexual experiences that are in conflict with one’s values, or by acting out problematic or compulsive expressions of sexuality.

People come to therapy for many different reasons, but I think what most of us are looking for is a place to get to know our own inner landscape with support and safety. This is a time for you to slow down and really connect with yourself, just as you are. You may begin therapy because of difficulty, loss, or pain; but I think you'll discover a lot about your strength and resiliency as well, and come to feel more alive and more engaged in all areas of your life.
