PSYCHO-SPIRITUALITY

My primary specialty is PsychoSpirituality - an orientation that integrates the wisdom and pathways of traditional psychological theories with various spiritual traditions.

I love working with people who are drawn to holistic healing and the weaving of spiritual and psychological pathways. I have clients struggling with intense emotional, mental, and somatic disturbances and clients who are relatively at ease yet seeking to know themselves more deeply - mind, heart, body, and spirit. I am most interested in each person's level of self-awareness and self-compassion. 

My work is grounded in the wisdom and techniques of Transpersonal Psychology, Psychodynamic Psychology, Enneagram of Personality, Somatic Awareness and Experiencing, Compassionate or Nonviolent Communication, Hindu and Buddhist Nondual Tantra, modern teachings of Advaita Vedanta, and Transpersonal Hypnosis.  

The psychology of spiritual awakening is a fascinating field gaining momentum. I understand the ways psychology and spirituality overlap and I love being able to integrate and weave these pathways. I offer an energetically rich and nurturing space for PsychoSpiritual awakening, transformation, and holistic integration.


LGBTQ

Many of my closest family, friends, mentors, counselors and teachers are members of the LGBTQ community. I believe authenticity is essential to happiness and freedom. Many of my clients have had the experience of needing to hide sexual/romantic and gender identities. This is a lonely and disheartening experience. 

I help my clients face and heal wounds related to stigma, discrimination, rejection, marginalization and isolation from loved ones and society. I've had the opportunity to help people make peace with the past, release unsupportive relationships, and become empowered to embody authenticity.


MAMAS & PAPAS

I love working with parents who are interested in cultivating respect-filled, kind, intimate, playful connections with our little ones. Parenting is such an intense journey - deeply nourishing and depleting. Getting support along the way is essential - we cannot draw water from an empty well

I have 2 toddlers - 4 year old son and 2 year old daughter. I love the wisdom of Nonviolent Communication and the styles of Attachment Parenting, Peaceful Parenting, and Resources for Infant Educarers RIE - and I integrate these principles in my family. I help my mama and papa clients explore their parenting styles/approaches and embody the most authentic path to parenting. I am very accepting of different styles and honor what works best for each family dynamic. 


Rather than striving for perfection, we discover how to love ourselves into wholeness.
