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
Walnut Creek, CA

At the core of many personal issues lie old messages of your sense of worth. Those messages conveyed to you while growing-up that minimized your self-esteem. The journey inward toward your past can often be frightening and disheartening. By slowly revisiting the wounded part of yourself, old repetitive behaviors can cease to exist. A new sense of kindness toward yourself will begin to emerge. Allow me to travel with you to discover what is buried deep inside of your soul, exploring what keeps you from becoming all that you want to be.
