My lived and clinical experience with illness and death have led me to hold a contemplative framework in my work with people facing life’s most uncertain times. My practice is rooted in the belief that each of us are inherently whole and deserving of joy, freedom, and care. I integrate spiritual, somatic, relational, and social justice oriented perspectives into my therapeutic work.

I offer a variety of trauma informed contemplative practices to support the healing process such as mindfulness meditation, centering prayer, expressive movement, reflective writing, visualization,
and ritual. I also integrate techniques from other types of therapy (Somatic Therapy, Cognitive
Behavioral Therapy, Psychodynamic etc.) 
when helpful to your healing.

my practice specialties

I accompany you with humility, compassion, and steadiness as you navigate life’s many transitions.

Some of these transitions may include illness, disability, relationship changes, financial loss, employment change, retirement, questioning faith/spirituality, gender transition, pregnancy, birth, postpartum, and dying.

I offer healing space and support for you to cultivate care, freedom, and joy in the face of oppressive structures such as racism, sexism, classism, homophobia, transphobia, and ableism. 

I provide grounded presence and support during your most tender times of loss and grief. I believe that loss, however painful, offers us opportunities for deep healing and growth.  I specialize in working with people dealing with invisible loss related to disability, diagnosis, and trauma.

I accept referrals for school age children and adolescents dealing with loss, chronic illness, and terminal illness. I incorporate techniques from play therapy, art therapy, and dance therapy in my practice with young people.
