My passion for psychotherapy began while working with the homeless population, juvenile offenders, and elementary school children in Santa Fe, New Mexico. I was able to build powerful bridges with individuals from vastly different backgrounds and was constantly reminded of our common wounds, fears, hopes and dreams.
I received my MSW in New Mexico before embarking on a journey of healing and transformation that began at the Esalen Institute and continued through my travels in India. I studied yoga very seriously at this time and continue to be most supported by yoga, travel, family, friends and the great outdoors.
Since relocating to Santa Cruz, I have been a counselor in the local elementary schools and worked at an agency that addresses the needs of children who are impacted by domestic violence. I have provided therapy in a variety of settings including a non-profit agency serving adult clients with chronic physical and mental health issues. I offer psychotherapy in both Aptos and Santa Cruz locations. My passion lies in helping individuals reclaim their power from traumatic experiences and realize their fullest human potential.
For each person I walk with, it is truly an honor!
