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, I became fascinated with the process of learning how to pull myself out of those dark cracks. That's what 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 to become a Bowenwork practitioner. I eventually attended the Somatic Psychology Program at the California Institute of Integral Studies in San Francisco.
