LONG Description (2950 characters max) Also complete SHORT description!
I offer a warm, engaged, relational approach to help clients on a path to deeper connection and wellness. I specialize in the sacred work of grief, and the important places of growth and love that loss brings us. In these dark places of our life, we can find deeper places in ourselves, and a richness and fertility that brings greater wisdom and joy to our lives. I also specialize in working with trauma, depression, perinatal loss, women's issues, career changes, and relationship issues.
I help clients build skills for regulating strong feelings, and calming anxiety through mindfulness work, breath work and building awareness of the body. I work with Somatic Psychology to help clients tune into the sensations of their bodies and the wisdom that the body offers us. I also enjoy working with dreams and art to understand what may be beneath our conscious awareness. I draw on modern research in the areas of trauma, attachment, the brain and the body.
I was trained at CIIS in the Integral Counseling Psychology program, and worked with children, teens and families at SAY for one year, and Lomi Psychology Clinic for a year before working with Lani Lee as an intern.
