How I work

I am passionate about using therapeutic approaches that engage body, heart, mind, and soul to support transformative change. My work fosters connection and amplification of the inner wise mind and personal strengths to facilitate growth and healing. I bring a compassionate understanding of the human condition that we all share and I use my own personhood more than the average therapist. I am consistently impressed by my clients' courage and ability to work on themselves, and I feel privileged to be a part of this amazing process.

I work with clients with diverse concerns, including depression, anxiety, trauma, grief, life transitions, relationship issues with couples, and with families.  I enjoy working with adolescents and young adults.


I graduated from the Institute of Transpersonal Psychology with a Masters in Counseling Psychology and a specialization in Creative Expression. I trained extensively in group psychotherapy and action methods at the Bay Area Moreno Institute and the Hudson Valley Psychodrama Institute and am certified as a psychodramatist by the American Examiners in Psychodrama, Sociometry, and Group Psychodtherapy.


I am co-author of Life, Death, and Transformation: Experiential Action Methods and Tools for Healing Grief and Trauma with Center for Living with Dying Director Janet Childs (Routledge, 2019).  We found experiential action grief work to be very effective for transforming difficult grief issues.

​On the personal side, I've been a child athlete, an amateur musician, a mother to three children, a widow, a founder of a retreat center, and a biomedical lab manager at Stanford University. I've benefited from a life long spiritual practice, and I bring a calm presence and a compassionate understanding of being human to my work with clients.
