Working Together

My practice is grounded in knowing the complexity of being human. My intention is to support you fully in getting from where you are to where you want to be. As a therapist, spiritual director and mentor, I am by your side with compassion, curiosity and an invitation to dig deep together. 

What to expect from our sessions:

Our work together is a collaborative process that involves real conversation. We will respond to the tough questions and challenges utilizing concrete somatic, cultural, spiritual and psycho-emotional tools and resources you can use in daily life. I’m here to witness and curate your evolving process, and to help you clear out whatever blocks you from the clarity and wisdom you already hold.

You are the expert of your own multi-layered, unique life. Your answers and unclaimed gifts are waiting in the shadows. Are you ready to uncover them? Let’s explore this mystery together.

Where we meet:

My office is a peaceful refuge, and my work with people and organizations also takes place in a broad variety of real-world settings: from serene nature settings to vibrant workspaces.
