About Me


My passion is supporting individuals and couples who feel overwhelmed by conflict, stress, self-criticism, sadness, anxiety, doubt and fear using a combination of Eastern and Western practices.

Most of my clients arrive knowing that things weren’t great growing up. They know that what happened to them is impacting their current life, ability to self-regulate and form happy, healthy relationships.

Many of my clients identify as being insecurely attached. Some find they have an anxious attachment style and a nervous system that is stuck in fight or flight, where there is a lot of anxiety, overwhelming feelings that seem to take over, and little self-regulation. Other clients come to me with a nervous system that is stuck in hypoarousal, where it is difficult to connect with emotions, especially under stress, which is more common in an avoidant attachment style

Together, we work to change these patterns to become more securely attached, working through the body, mind, and spirit to bring about powerful change. My framework is informed by polyvagal theory, structural dissociation, attachment theory, and mindfulness. 

I have extensive training in the fields of psychotherapy and energy healing. Please see below if you would like to read more about my clinical qualifications.
