A Little About Me

I love working with couples and adults looking to deepen their connection with themselves and how they show up in their closest relationships. I help clients to feel connected, grounded, and connected to their own inner knowing (or intuition). I also love helping couples and individuals move more authentically in their relationships and in the world. Using both the truth of the body, the present moment, as well as the experiences from your daily life, we gently uncover core beliefs about yourself and the world and can begin to rewire how these parts show up.

I have training in Hakomi, a mindfulness-based and somatic style of therapy. I find that it's a powerful vehicle for exploring deep parts of ourselves compassionately. My style is also warm, gentle, and collaborative. I work with couples and adults of all ages and backgrounds. My previous career was as an educator, most recently as a Middle School Spanish Teacher. I am humbled and honored to be doing this work.
