Reaching out for help can be hard. I want therapy to be worth your time and energy. I integrate Eastern and Western philosophies in my work, with a particular emphasis on somatic or mindfulness-oriented approaches. My personal journey has led me through a 20-year voyage of healing through indigenous shamanic practices, vision quests, meditation retreats, and Western psychotherapies. I sense the answers you seek lie within you, my goal is to draw on your wisdom and my experience to help you to realize these answers. I believe you are bigger than the sum of your challenges, and have an innate ability to connect to your power and step out of shame, confusion, and disconnect.
