Developing a therapeutic relationship can bring to the forefront those ways in which unacknowledged beliefs drive our interactions with family, intimate partners, colleagues and our community at large. While it is not necessary to be in crisis to enjoy the benefits of psychotherapy, it is not unusual to seek support during life transitions, like a change in marital status, family composition, career or address.

I help clients manage anxiety, depression and grief utilizing an integration of psychotherapy and mindfulness based practices. In particular I work with emotional and/or physical trauma. I make use of the wisdom derived from western and eastern approaches to work with mind, emotions and body. Specifically, I integrate the principals of Buddhist psychology, body centered psychotherapy, and the rich tradition of Yoga. I hold the view that establishing a healthy therapeutic relationship awakens your innate orientation toward health and growth.

Raised in a bi-lingual household in a highly multicultural environment, I learned to make use of multiple viewpoints and navigate complex environments. While this ability lent itself to a successful first career as a human resources professional it wasn’t until I reconnected with my own felt experience through the practices of yoga and meditation that I found my calling in a helping profession.

In addition to completing a Masters degree in Contemplative Psychotherapy, I have studied, practiced and taught yoga/meditation for over 10 years in the Denver area. I am trained in the Hakomi Method, a body centered approach to psychotherapy and Brainspotting, a therapeutic tool to directly work with trauma. I use a holistic approach bringing attention to the soma (body) and employ a variety of interventions that emphasize mindfulness and include yoga based interventions to help clients, who are experiencing trauma symptoms, stabilize their nervous system.
I see adults and adolescents individually and work with small groups (4-6 people) employing, as appropriate, therapeutic approaches, yoga or a combination of the two. I can help you find a way to reduce stress and reconnect with your inherent wisdom and resiliency.
