About me

Your healing can start today!

I am a holistic therapist licensed in California with 25 years of professional work experience.

I work best with people who are open to or curious about body-mind-spirit holistic healing modalities when talk therapy alone is not enough.

I believe that anyone can heal and see each person as the expert of themselves. My role is to listen with compassion, as a collaborator and guide on your healing journey, holding a loving mirror for you to safety look, feel, process, and release that which is in the way of you living your greatest life.

I have experience in helping clients with chronic pain and illness, stress and anxiety, life transitions, LGBTQI+ related issues, coping with grief and loss, narcissistic abuse recovery, spiritual/cult abuse, adult children of dysfunctional families, psychedelic integration, and intimacy issues.

I believe that mindfulness and body awareness are fundamental aspects to the healing process and along with your healing intent, will remove the blocks that are in the way of you realizing your potential in all areas of life: relationships and sexuality, life purpose and career, finances, and health.

Your healing intention is like a GPS device in your soul and I invite you to share it with me so I can help you progress along your path.
