Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
The heart of my practice is creating a compassionate and present space for my clients to explore their whole selves and awaken to their truest nature. When we recognize and metabolize the strategies and defenses we developed in response to our upbringing, space is made for our natural aliveness. Qualities shine through, such as joy, strength and wisdom. There is more capacity to face life’s challenges, more ease in our body and more freedom to express ourselves. My practice is informed by Diamond Heart, an embodied approach to psycho-spiritual development, and Somatic Psychotherapy. I use mindfulness and somatic practices to develop an awareness of the body and the present moment, including breath work, touch, guided visualization and movement. My approach values all aspects of the self: emotional, physical, mental and spiritual. I also teach youth at Spirit Rock Meditation Center and lead Vision Quests and other Rites of Passage journeys.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
San Rafael, CA

My therapeutic style is non-judgmental, supportive, and interactive. My work is based on establishing a safe environment where trust can grow. I view symptoms as a way to call attention to unrecognized needs and unexpressed feelings. The goals of treatment include; learning to identify and express emotions, learning to set appropriate boundaries, developing skills such as self-soothing and impluse control and improving self-esteem.
