I feel deeply honored to work with individuals doing this most intimate and transformative inner work. I am a graduate of the California Institute of Integral Studies (CIIS) with a Masters Degree in Counseling Psychology, specializing in somatic or body-mind psychotherapy.
My professional background includes three years of somatic psychotherapeutic training at the Center for Somatic Psychotherapy and three years serving children and their families as an elementary school psychotherapy & Sandplay Therapy intern.
My personal healing journey led me to take a special interest in working with individuals seeking to heal the physiological imprint of trauma on the nervous system. In my graduate research seminar, I co-founded “Trauma Sensitive Somatic Resourcing,” a treatment protocol for dual diagnosis of substance abuse & post-traumatic stress. This work was grounded in volunteering TSSR workshops to the underserved women at Options Recovery Services in Berkeley, CA.
