Things are as they are. Looking out into the universe at night, we make no comparisons between right and wrong stars, nor between well and badly arranged constellations.

Alan Watts

As a relationship counselor...

I help people stuck in patterns that block intimacy. In our session, we use mindful awareness to make slight shifts that make a big difference.

My counseling approach is a unique blend of Eastern philosophy and mindfulness skills with Western psychology and neuroscience. As a result you and your partner will see each other deeply.

Services

Providing counseling to all individuals (cis, queer, trans, gender fluid) , couples (traditional, open, poly, lesbian, gay) , and groups (family, friends, professional) regardless of cultural background or religious/spiritual belief.

Approach

I utilize mindfulness and body-centered approaches ...

...to promote mental health. My orientation is influenced by three important lenses: how we make sense of our environment (Neuroscience), how we build relationships (Attachment Theory), and how we manage ourselves with others (Affect Regulation). Sessions are typically experiential because I believe that growth comes from working with material in the moment rather than simply talking about it.

Training

My educational background includes...

...receiving a Bachelor's Degree in Somatic Psychology and a Master’s Degree in Transpersonal Counseling Psychology from Naropa University - a mindfulness-based university - in Boulder, CO. Since that time, I have received additional training in Acceptance and Committment Therapy (ACT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), as well as becoming certified in Psychobiological Approach to Couples Therapy (PACT).
