About Me

I have been a Psychotherapist for 24 years and have enjoyed working as therapist, graduate school teacher, trainer/facilitator, and yoga teacher for the past 2 decades. My passion is integrating the body and mindfulness into my work with clients in a collaborative way. I am also a Certified EMDR Therapist and specialize in working with trauma through EMDR, somatic psychotherapy, and art therapy. I love teaching and guiding people, as they learn to compassionately and courageously turn towards themselves. I believe that each one of us is inherently strong and a fully whole individual. Sometimes we just need support and guidance to find our way home.

I have spent a few years teaching yoga to at-risk youth and people healing from illness and recovering from addiction, as well as training others to work with these specialized populations.
