Out beyond ideas of wrong doing and right doing, there is a field.
I’ll meet you there
— Jelaluddin Rumi

When we let go of our ideas of how life should be, and learn to embrace our lives as they truly are, real and lasting change is possible, and a more vital, authentic self emerges. 

I have worked with clients who have been struggling with relationships, depression, anxiety, sexuality, addictions, trauma, loss, shame, adult child issues and major life changes.  Each, in their own way, has found it possible to experience healing, contentment, growth and a sense of vibrancy.

My clients are diverse, and are represented by every color of the rainbow: men, women, individuals, couples and families. I offer a therapeutic relationship grounded in respect, empathy, honesty, integrity and compassion. I strive to create a safe place where we can explore tender matters of the heart and find new, more alive ways of being.

It is my passion to bring more light and love into the world, by transcending obstacles, healing wounds, and realizing our truth.  I would be honored to collaborate with you on your journey to wholeness and authenticity. I invite you to let your life shine!

I have been working with clients for over two years, and am a graduate of the California Institute of Integral Studies.  In previous lives I have worked in university administration, an internet business, human services, and also as both a deckhand and then mate on cargo ships sailing to Alaska.  My diverse life experience informs and supports our work together. I welcome your contact.
