Hello.  I am so happy you are here.

As a somatic psychotherapist, counselor and educator, I offer counseling support to adults with an interest in healing and growth through a somatic (body-oriented) lens. I specialize in working with adults with a variety of issues including trauma and grief.

I strive to offer a brave and affirming space, and am committed to my own inner work especially regarding the intersection of well-being and questions of oppression, privilege and social justice. 


I care about your well-being and I am deeply committed to supporting you restore greater balance and ease in your life. I offer some ways that can help get you there.

If you are curious and would like to learn more, I invite you to contact me to see if we might be a good fit for working together.

In deep appreciation and alliance,
