Therapy Style

My therapy style is warm, intuitive, and direct. I am known for a more holistic, integrative approach that considers mind, body, heart, and spirit. Western research-based interventions often create a foundation for treatment, which is then blended with Eastern traditions such as yoga, mindfulness, and philosophy. My experiences as a yogi, dancer, world traveler, artist, and poet lend creativity and range to my extensive clinical expertise. I emphasize authenticity, vulnerability, responsibility, and self-compassion.
