About Me

TREATMENT ORIENTATIONS that most influence my work include:

  • Humanistic/Existential
  • Somatic
  • Integrative/Eclectic
  • Family/Marital
  • Transpersonal


The HAKOMI method is a core element of my practice. Hakomi is a body-centered approach combining the Eastern traditions of mindfulness and non-violence with a unique, highly effective Western methodology. With safety and connection between therapist and client, core material can be accessed rapidly, re-evaluated and when helpful, transformed for a fuller experience of life.

THE WORK OF BYRON KATIE is of particular interest to me and very useful for investigating and unraveling stressful thoughts. It is a simple and powerful way form of inquiry to identify and question thoughts that lead to suffering.

My work is also informed by a variety of practices, including daily meditation, as well as yoga, movement, and time in nature. Having completed training in bodywork and energywork, these modalities also influence my psychotherapy practice.
