A Little About Me

Welcome! I'm so glad you're here.

I am passionate about working with adult couples, relationships and individuals in growing a greater sense of influence in their lives.

As a queer, Third Culture clinician, I hold the perspective that bodies are not fixed states and we are constantly transitioning in ourselves, with different people and environments. At the core of my work, I hold the perspective that there is no "right" way to be human. Our therapy begins with how you are showing up in this very moment. What are you telling yourself through your movements, or your stillness? Your gestures, postures, speech patterns and breathing are just some of the ways in which you speak to yourself. By working with how you are showing up in the moment with me, we discover what you are wanting to nourish and cultivate in therapy.

My Somatic-Relational approach is largely informed by Formative Psychology, developed by Stanley Keleman, the founder of Center for Energetic Studies in Berkeley, California. At the core of my work, I understand that when we start building a relationship between our thinking and feeling bodies, this creates a ground from which we can grow authentic power and agency in our lives.

To learn more about my approach, current availability, or to view my rates, please reach out to me or check out my website. I look forward to hearing from you!
