Discovering the life you want to live - where you feel authentic, fully alive, and in alignment with your deepest values - is about slowing down and learning to pay close, kind attention inside.
I can help you Get there.
My practice is located in the east bay area in Berkeley, California. I am a somatic psychotherapist who loves helping individuals and couples reach new levels of self-empowerment, creativity, flow and connection in their lives and relationships. I am here to support you in finding your clear boundaries and in learning what true self-care and life balance mean for you.
I specialize in working with individuals suffering from the impact of trauma, stress, anxiety, depression and those going through major life transitions.
Whatever brings you here, either as an individual or couple, we will explore together, at your own pace, and with your unique needs in mind.
I am a practitioner of Sensorimotor Psychotherapy for the treatment of trauma. My client-centered, collaborative approach is informed by somatic (body-oriented), relational, attachment, psychodynamic and social-justice oriented theories, Buddhist psychology, my personal insight meditation (Vipassana) practice and a deep connection with nature.
I am a PACT trained therapist and I welcome couples of all orientations. I am kink and poly-friendly, and hold a sex-positive approach. I work with partners on many different aspects of their relationships including pre-marital counseling, communication, sexuality, infidelity, building trust and intimacy, parenting, navigating differences and the impact of past trauma(s) on the relationship.
I invite you to contact me to schedule an appointment or to talk more about therapy and the way I work. I look forward to connecting with you.
