I appreciate a grounded yet inspired approach to life. Although I am continually taken with the power of the methods that I use, the foundation of my work is that I am real, an honest presence, an ally. I will listen for and speak with the parts of you that need or want to be engaged and don’t always get to have that.

As humans we become rigidified in certain perceptions of the world based on the blueprints that we have been exposed to and how we organize around those. We are often not aware to what extent they dictate our experience of our lives. Together we can uncover these beliefs and discover new possibilities, literally creating new pathways in our brains so we can have access to options and resources that were not there before.

I consider that we are here to help you thrive. Whether this means there is something stopping you from having what you aspire to, a desire to tease through knots in yourself,  a difficulty resting in who you are, some repair to be done, a heart to be nursed back to openness, we can attend to your being. You have an inner world that is a unique ecosystem, deals with particular forces and circumstances. By exploring and attending to your internal landscape we can support it’s growth.

I am a Marriage and Family Therapist and certified Hakomi Therapist. I am trained in Sensorimotor Trauma Work as well as EMDR, another extremely effective modality to work with Trauma. I am the Co-Founder of Anam Cara Healing Center and a Teacher for the Hakomi Institute of California. My approach blends together elements of psychotherapy, somatic psychology, Buddhist psychology eco-psychology, movement, community development, farming, permaculture indigenous wisdom, communication skills as well as an array of healing modalities and spiritual lineages. I have lived in many cultures. I am Franco-American and so can also provide therapy in French. I have led groups, specifically on Intimacy and Rites of Passage. I work with individual: adults and teenagers as well as couples.
