ABOUT ME

Hi. It's good to see you!

Perhaps you'd like to know that I arrive in this moment with you through the transformation of my own pain, dysfunction and difficulties. There was a time that I couldn't imagine a way out. Then through the chaos, subtle hints touched my world that showed me feeling better might be possible. In following those hints, I began the lifelong process of reconnecting with my body and all the wisdom and power that lie within it. The magic of that journey sparked a fire in me to help guide others on their own passages through struggle. I feel so grateful for the past six years I've been able to support folks in their paths of healing and embodiment.

The somatic odyssey I embarked on led me to train and become certified in Bowenwork as well as in yoga. Eventually, I attended the Somatic Psychology Program at the California Institute of Integral Studies in San Francisco, where I received my Masters. During my time in the Bay Area, I also trained in Hakomi at the Hakomi Institute of California. The physiology of emotion, the Hakomi Method, and the incredible healing capacity of the natural world heavily influence my work.
