Falling might very well be flying –
without the tyranny of coordinates.

About Me

I may be a therapist, but first I am a human! I have fallen into deep cracks in my life and learned how to pull myself out again. Besides the magic of understanding that it is even possible, learning how to pull myself out of those dark cracks and heal fascinated me. It’s that learning process that led me on a path of supporting others on their own healing journeys. Life is hard, even in the best of circumstances. I love helping my clients thrive through the difficulty.

After a very physical life of landscaping, carpentry and organic vegetable farming, I went on a different somatic odyssey that led me to train in yoga and become a Bowenwork practitioner. I eventually attended the Somatic Psychology Program at the California Institute of Integral Studies in San Francisco.
