I work with clients using relational and somatic (body-oriented) modalities. That means fostering a gentle awareness of what’s going on inside along with engaged curiosity about the live relationship dynamics at play between each person in the room. I believe that an empathetic understanding of your unique worldview—and how you have arrived at that view—is essential to changing the behaviors, emotional reactions, and thought patterns by which you organize your life and your relationships. For this reason, I emphasize compassion as a starting point.

My training in holistic counseling psychology includes Hakomi Body-Centered Psychotherapy, Formative Psychology at Berkeley’s Center for Energetic Studies, PsychoPhysical Therapy, DBT, Focusing, and the work of Carl Rogers (relational therapy) and Sue Johnson (Emotionally Focused Therapy).
